Disney Festival Of FantasyPixie Dust Central:
The New Disney Festival Of Fantasy Parade

It’s been a lot of years since a brand new parade debuted at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. I could hardly wait to see this gorgeous new parade as I’d seen a few pictures of some of the designs last year at a media event I attended. So, I packed up my family and we headed over to Walt Disney World last weekend. It was a full house at Magic Kingdom Park when this stunning new parade made its first trip down Main Street, U.S.A. In fact, there were so many people in front of and around me that I couldn’t see the tops and the bottoms of any of the floats at the same time. It was pretty awesome, nonetheless.

Disney Festival of Fantasy parade is the first of a new generation of parades for Disney Parks featuring never-before-used technology on eye-popping floats adorned with Disney characters from more than a dozen fairytales. Set to an all-new musical score, the dazzling parade floats soar up to three stories tall with spirited performers donning dramatic costumes crafted at ten different design houses across the country.

There were seven unique units comprised of nine spectacular floats that marched down Main Street, U.S.A to the beat of an original soundtrack inspired by favorite Disney films, composed by Mark Hammond, known for his work on World of Color at Disney California Adventure and the Flights of Fantasy parade at Hong Kong Disneyland. The parade has its own voice with a theme song customized for each float followed by a medley of songs woven throughout the cavalcade.

Rapunzel’s iconic tresses weave throughout this 36-foot-long float decked out with swaying pendulums carrying dastardly thugs. These thugs were hanging around and on the swaying pendulums! It was so cool!


This spectacular parade is a not-to-be-missed! You can catch it each day at 3:00 p.m. at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World!
