Earlier this year, Disney announced that the Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade at Magic Kingdom would be replaced by the upcoming Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. More details have trickled out today via the Disney Parks Blog.
First off, Disney revealed two new parade floats, in addition to the three that had previously been seen (the Mickey and Minnie float, the Tangled float, and the Peter Pan float). These new floats are a Little Mermaid float with Ariel and her Under the Sea friends, as we all as Merida atop a bagpipe alongside a troupe of Scottish dancers. (Look out for her three brothers, too!)
As I previously mentioned in another post, the Celebrate the Magic Parade comes to an end after its performance on December 20. Throughout the holidays, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade will be shown daily. Then the Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade will have a couple of special finale performances scheduled from January 1-4.
After January 4, 2014, there will not be traditional afternoon parade at Magic Kingdom until the Disney Festival of Fantasy parade officially debuts in the spring of 2014 (no exact date as of yet), but guests will still be able to enjoy the Move It, Shake It Celebrate It Street Party and the Main Street Electrical Parade.
