While many of us at Kenny the Pirate have enjoyed the character cavalcades, which are basically mini parades, they don’t compare to the spectacle and pageantry of a full scale parade.
Earlier this fall, Disney announced that the Main Street Electrical Parade would return to Disneyland to celebrate its 50th anniversary!
Festival of Fantasy
We also heard that the Magic Kingdom’s daytime parade, Festival of Fantasy will return “in the new year” sometime in 2022!
Festival of Fantasy has been a staple of the Magic Kingdom since 2014. The parade celebrates the tales of Fantasyland and includes nods to Tangled, Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty, among others!
