It’s no secret that Disney parades are beyond magical — for kids, for adults, and everyone in between!
And sometimes, we get extra special surprises during parade times. Sometimes it’s a Rainy Day Cavalcade if it’s raining outside, or other times, like today, a Disney celebrity leads the parade and waves to all the guests!
We recently got word that Michael James-Scott, who played Genie in Aladdin on Broadway, would be starting Magic Kingdom’s Festival of Fantasy Parade today, February 6th! He was to act as the honorary grand marshal, and he NAILED it!

We got a front row seat to see him drive past at the start of the parade, and he was all smiles — waving and saying hello to guests waiting for the parade. That smile is contagious.
Michael was part of the parade as Disney celebrates Black History Month in February with an event called Celebrate Soulfully. Want to learn more? See more ways you can Celebrate Soulfully this month in the parks below!
