Disclosure: We were invited by Disney to attend a media event about the upcoming Magic Kingdom entertainment offerings. This did not affect our reporting of the event — our opinions are our own.
Full-length parades finally returned to Disney World with Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime parade this past holiday season.
And as much as we love the holiday-themed entertainment, we were thrilled to hear that a regular daytime parade is also returning to Magic Kingdom — the Festival of Fantasy Parade. This parade features several incredible floats and tons of Disney characters, including Mickey, Minnie, Disney princesses, the amazing steampunk-inspired Maleficent dragon, and more. Now, we have a return DATE for this parade!
We recently attended a media event where we learned that the Festival of Fantasy Parade will return to Magic Kingdom on March 9th.
That date is actually the 8-year anniversary of the parade’s debut in Disney World in 2014! When it returns, Festival of Fantasy will feature characters from Tangled, Princess and the Frog, Brave, and more.
A certain villainous float will also return with the parade… We’ve got more details about its return coming soon, so stay tuned!
