PHOTOS, VIDEO: The Royal Princess Processional & Fantasyland Friends “Rainy Day Cavalcade” Debut at the Magic Kingdom

Since reopening to the public, Walt Disney World theme parks have replaced traditional character meet-and-greets with socially distanced alternatives. At the Magic Kingdom, characters can be seen throughout the park during The Royal Princess Processional and the Fantasyland Friends cavalcades. Since this is Florida, and rain is inevitable, Magic Kingdom has debuted modified “Rainy Day Cavalcades.”

Let’s face it: Florida summers guarantee rain, and inconsistent rainfall at that. Typically, outdoor character interactions at Walt Disney World theme parks are postponed during the rain, so we are thrilled to see this creative solution being implemented at the Magic Kingdom. We believe these “Rainy Day Cavalcades” are a delightful addition to the parks.
