Beginning March 9, 2022, Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade will take place at both 11:30 AM and 2:30 PM. These showtimes will stay in place through March 12, 2022. Then, beginning on March 13, the Festival of Fantasy Parade will run at both 12:00 PM and 3:00 PM daily in the Magic Kingdom. Showtimes beyond April have not yet been posted, but once available Guests will be able to check all showtimes on the go in the My Disney Experience app.

Offering two chances per day to see Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade is sure to help Guests who have been missing it find time to see the parade during their visit to the Magic Kingdom. With a 3:00 start time, Guests who are arriving in the park at 2:00 PM will be able to see the parade right on Main Street or in Liberty Square after Park Hopping, and simply by having both times available Guests will find more flexibility in planning their day in the park.

The parade route will return to its previous set up, with the parade kicking off in Frontierland and running through Liberty Square, by Cinderella Castle and right down Main Street U.S.A. (So if you are watching from Main Street, you may not see your first float until 15 minutes or so after the parade‘s start time.)

Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade debuted at the Disney Park in 2014 to positive reviews from fans for its original soundtrack, unique costumes, and loads of characters from new and classic Disney animated films. Among characters included in the parade are Anna and Elsa, Tiana and Prince Naveen, Cinderella and Prince Charming, Flynn Rider and Rapunzel, Prince Phillip along with a full-sized and firebreathing Maleficent Dragon, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, Peter Pan, Wendy, the Lost Boys, Merida, Ariel, and of course Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and the rest of the Fab Five.

Be sure to confirm start times of the parade on the My Disney Experience app ahead of your next visit to the Magic Kingdom after March 9th, and have a blast experiencing the return of Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade!
