Throughout the day Guests can enjoy special character cavalcades. Previously these were found in all 4 Walt Disney World Parks. Unfortunately, EPCOT no longer offers Character Cavalcades. Be sure to check out the Complete Guide to Character Cavalcades for all of the great Cavalcades featured in the other Walt Disney World Parks.

This is such a fun way to interact with your favorite characters throughout the day. You can find entertainment schedules on the My Disney Experience app and the Character Locator.

At the Magic Kingdom, a huge crowd was gathered along Main Street, USA, and near the entrance to the Magic Kingdom. Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade features Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse along with their best pals wearing their 50th Anniversary outfits. The song, “The Magic is Calling” is played as the characters interact with guests.

A young boy attempted to answer “The Magic is Calling” as he climbed aboard the float. The question many wondered is how he was able to make it all of the way to the float. Pathways are carefully monitored by Cast Members to prevent such incidents.

A performer from the cavalcade appeared to notice the young boy and went to grab him. She had a misstep and tripped on the float. Following her, another Cast Member helped to remove him from the float. This video was shared on Instagram by @themagiciscalling:

Recently, a young boy climbed aboard Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade at Magic Kingdom.

Thankfully it appears that everyone is safe in this incident. We are thankful that no one was injured.

Why would any family go to WokeWorld now? So many beautiful sights in the US to enjoy.

Watch your children at all times while in any amusement park. Especially when there are moving vehicles.

Seriously, I dig down a rabbit hole of injuries at Disney. And one was being run over by a float I believe. And the moment I opened tiktok that video was the first thing I saw.

Man this was the second incident where someone attempted to join the cavalcade that involved Pluto. The first was the one where Pluto had to literally get off to help the cast members bring a child back to the side. What a hero he was that day.

That didn't look very chaotic to me, kinda stunned Pluto though!
