Disney Festival of Fantasy

We can’t wait for this incredibly unique looking parade, and now we have an official premiere date! The new Magic Kingdom 3:00 p.m. parade is scheduled to debut on Sunday, March 9!

The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is slated to bring beloved Disney and Pixar characters to life through innovative parade floats, a brand new original parade song, plus incredibly stunning costumes. Make sure to check out this post to see a peek at some of the costumes, as well as the floats! This parade will feature nearly 100 performers in all to bring the parade to life.

The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade line-up is:

  • The Princess Garden – This float celebrates Disney royalty.
  • Tangled – Flynn Rider and Rapunzel in search of adventure!
  • The Little Mermaid – Ariel and friends sit atop a seashell music box.
  • Peter Pan – Straight from Never Land come Peter Pan and Wendy, soaring high on the Jolly Roger.
  • Brave – features a float shaped like an enormous bagpipe to announce the arrival of Merida.
  • Sleeping Beauty – The heroic Prince Phillip battles a Steampunk-inspired Dragon as the wicked Maleficent.
  • Finale and Mickey’s Airship – The parade culminates with a 90-foot-long magical caravan of characters.

Who’s excited that the new daytime parade will be ready to roll on Main Street, U.S.A., in less than two weeks?!

    Darn it! We will miss it by one day. We fly out March 9. I was really looking forward to this parade!

    This is fantastic! When will touring plans be updated so that I can add it to my schedule? I am actually going on the 9th.
    Do we have any idea if they are going to have fastpass+ for this? I looked and its not an option at this time.

      You can add it to a personalized touring plan now. We are currently assuming a 3:00 pm start time, but Disney has not announced times for any specific dates yet, so check back (, re-optimize your touring plan, or see a Times Guide) closer to your touring date.

      I have not seen an announcement about whether this parade will be a FastPass+ option, so that’s anybody’s guess for now.

    My daughter has a 2:30 appointment (30 min crown package) at MK. If we get out of the castle at 3pm, can we still catch the parade as it comes in front of the castle? How long does it take for the parade to reach the castle and will it be too congested in that area at that time? I could have my husband and son save seats while she is at the appointment. I’m not sure how early people line up for parades.
