Magic Kingdom is home to Festival a Fantasy – an enchanting tribute to the tales of Fantasyland. See your favorite characters from movies like Tangled, Peter Pan, and The Little Mermaid. We also cannot forgot that Mickey and Minnie Mouse appear in the parade as well as fan-favorite Maleficent (in dragon form). There are so many beloved characters to spot in this fun show.

The parade began in 2014, but Disney temporarily cut the show during the initial reopening phase. In in its place, Disney created cavalcades.

The cavalcades are nice and do provide entertainment, but nothing compares to the pageantry of a full scale parade. With social distancing no longer implemented at Disney World theme parks, we knew it was only a matter of time before other entertainment returned.

Parades are a different beast than fireworks. It takes many more performers than firework technicians to put on a show. Disney revealed that Festival of Fantasy would indeed return in early 2022.  These are basically miniature parades that run much more frequently throughout the day.

Recently, we shared more details about this wonderful parade returning HERE.
