“Mickey and Friends World Tour” Character Cavalcade Ending May 4 at EPCOT

The Mickey and Friends World Tour character cavalcade at EPCOT will be coming to an end on May 4, 2021. Mickey and friends will instead make appearances at the park’s entrance, as we’ve seen recently.

The character cavalcade circled World Showcase as a way for guests to safely see characters in a time of physical distancing.

It seems Disney has decided that characters making static appearances is more efficient. Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Pluto have been appearing sporadically at the front of the park and will appear there more regularly beginning May 5, 2021. Anna and Elsa’s cavalcade also ended this year in favor of them appearing in the Norway Pavilion. This leaves only the Princess Promenade cavalcade.

Do you prefer the character cavalcades or static appearances? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I like the cavalcade better only because I think there’s more opportunity to see them since not everyone comes to the park from the front….some come through the gateway and may not make it up front or if they do may not be timed well to see them where if you’re going around the countries you will be more likely to see the cavalcade eventually since they circle around a few times.

  2. I wonder what new changes and or replacements will be there when the time comes.

  3. Are the Disney Junior Character Cavalcades at Disney’s Hollywood Studios going to continue or are they going to end soon?

  4. You can’t help but wonder if this means we are getting closer to normal meet and greets again?

  5. I am not a fan of character drive-bys. I don’t like standing in long lines to see them. My favorite is character meals like Ohana or Chef Mickeys. They come to you while you are having a great breakfast.

  6. I love the cavalcades! Unexpected fun moments and no lines to stand in and no ropes to maneuver around. ♥️

  7. I would prefer static appearances, because Disneyland has recently opened up again and characters are appearing statically there. For instance, Rapunzel and the evil queen 👑 are being seen on a wooden stoop and the rest of the princesses are being seen in the Royal Theater 🎭, instead of the Royal Hall 💖🤠😸🙂😃🙂❤️💙💞💗💟❤️☺️🤠🤠😸🙂😃🙂❤️💙💜, and they aren’t hugging nor dancing nor high-fiving nor photo-taking nor nose nuzzling with little girls either, they’re just staying six feet 🐾 away from everyone, which is what I’d rather they do.
