Parade CHANGE Announced for Magic Kingdom in Disney World

One of the absolute BEST parts of visiting Disney World is checking out the seemingly endless list of live entertainment.

Festival of Fantasy

From fireworks shows to parades, there’s some sort of live entertainment option in each of the Disney World parks, some even taking place multiple times a day. One of the most iconic parades to take place in Disney World happens each day at Magic Kingdom — the Festival of Fantasy parade! Each day at 3PM, you can catch all of the most beloved classic Disney characters as they dance their way from Frontierland to Main Street, U.S.A.. If you love the Festival of Fantasy parade, or you’re hoping to catch it for the first time on your upcoming Disney trip, you’re going to want to keep reading!

There’s been an IMPORTANT (and super exciting) update to the Festival of Fantasy schedule!

Festival of Fantasy Parade

Starting February 18th, Festival of Fantasy will go back to two showtimes per day! These shows will take place daily at both 12PM and 3PM. Right now, we can only see through March 2nd on Disney’s calendar, but it seems that this change will stick around for now!

There are usually two showtimes per day, but on January 16th, Magic Kingdom reduced them to only one showing per day. The showings switch between one and two times daily a few times per year.


We’ll be sure to let you know if and when the showtimes change again, so make sure to follow along so that you don’t miss a thing.
