  • So will the Disney Channel and Disney XD stars only be grand marshals for the 3:00 parade, not the 12:00, since there are 2 Festival of Fantasy parade performances on May 22?

  • My kids are going to lose their minds.

  • I’m going to the MK at 6am and after the Festival of Fantasy Parade, I’ll go to DHS. At 11pm, I’ll go back to the Magic Kingdom 😀

  • So hard to choose between Star Wars Weekend events and the 24-hour event at the Magic Kingdom. Our son loves both and all his favorite stars will be at the 3pm Festival of Fantasy Parade.

  • Oh man my kids are going to freak. We’re locals but I might need to take my kids just for the parade alone!
