Parades in Disney are always something you need to make time for. The costumes and parade floats are always so amazing to see.
I had heard about the newest parade in Magic Kingdom and I knew we had to go see it.
The Festival of Fantasy parade is only on once a day at 3pm in the Magic Kingdom. We got there early to snag some seats on the curb, which is smart.
The street really filled up as the parade got closer. The parade starts in Frontierland and then comes down Main Street last, so we had a little while to wait for the parade to get to us.
Finally the first dancers made their way down Main Street! The soundtrack to the parade was great.
The first float had Belle and the Beast on the front.
On the same float was Cinderella, Tianna and Anna and Elsa. I was pretty surprised that Anna and Elsa didn’t have their own float. They were on the back which rotated so we didn’t even realize they were there until it spun around.
Next was the Tangled float. I loved the hatchets rocking back and forth. Flynn was swinging on those while Rapunzel was on the front.
After that was Ariel. I loved this float. The seashell at the top was so cool!
Next was the Lost Boys, Peter Pan, Wendy and Hook. The pirate ship at the top rocked back and forth. It was crazy how they made it. On the back of the float was Tinkerbell and the crocodile was chasing them.
The dancers that followed were in front of the Brave float. They were dancing up a storm in the street.
Next the fairies came rolling up the street. I say rolling because it looked like they were on segways or something. Then the dragon started breathing fire. It was really cool! My favorite though was the guy in the back walking back and forth moving the tail.
Then it was character-palooza! Snow White, the seven dwarfs, Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and Jiminy Cricket came dancing by.
The next float was really long. Pinnochio was in the front on the whale and then Donald and Daisy. It was like a giant circus float!
The last float held the stars of the show, Mickey and Minnie in a hot air balloon!
These banner girls run the show. The mob of people behind them was insane, but you cannot pass them!
The whole parade was really well designed. My only thing was that Anna and Elsa didn’t have their own float. They are HUGE in Disney right now. Other than that I thought it was one of the best parades I have seen!
