Walt Disney World Orlando has debuted an all-new parade at the Magic Kingdom – the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade.  The entertainment spectacular is a first in a new generation of parades for Disney Parks.  Incorporating never-before-used technology, animatronics and vibrant costumes, the Festival of Fantasy Parade comes to life in a bigger and better fashion than any other. 

Characters from more than a dozen fairytales appear at the Festival of Fantasy Parade, which is themed to pay tribute to the magic of Fantasyland.  The elaborate procession features nearly 100 performers and Disney characters.  Colorful, three-foot high parade floats, energetic choreography, enchanting straight-out-of-the-movies costuming and an all-new musical score bring this parade to life as it tells the stories of popular fairy tales and movies.  Look forward to floats from “Tangled,” “Peter Pan,” “Brave,” and “Sleeping Beauty,” among others.  One of the fan favorites so far include Maleficent appearing as a fire-breathing dragon, ensconced in Prince Phillip for the Sword of Truth.  Another is the Disney Princess Garden Float, with Anna, Elsa and Olaf, from Frozen, as well as Cinderella, Belle and Tiana appearing.   Of course, there is so much more to see during this engaging 12-minutes production.  See the Festival of Fantasy Parade for yourself daily at 3pm at the Magic Kingdom inside Disney World.
