Today marks the 6th anniversary since the debut of the popular Disney “Festival of Fantasy Parade” at Magic Kingdom Park. It delights people daily with its colorful floats, costumes and catchy tunes, but what really makes the parade special is the people who put it on. One of those people is cast member Larry Wrobel, who recently celebrated a milestone of his own.

Larry has been driving floats down the Magic Kingdom Park parade route for years, but there was one that stood out as a must-do: the magnificent Maleficent dragon float. That dream has now come true, and what made the moment even more magical is that his family was there to witness it. Larry’s wife, who also works at Magic Kingdom Park, joined the rest of his family who traveled from five different states just be on Main Street, U.S.A. so they could celebrate his bucket list dream with him.

Check out this incredibly heart-warming magical moment for Larry and his family:

Dreams like this come true every day at Walt Disney World, but we get even more excited when these moments happen for our incredible cast members. It’s just another part of the #DisneyCastLife!

Be sure to cheer extra loud for Larry and his fellow parade cast members the next time you catch the “Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade”!


  • Are there currently any whirly drive unit openings?

  • It is so great when cast members get to live their dream too!
