BREAKING: Noon Performance of Festival of Fantasy Parade Canceled, 3 PM May Also Be Canceled at Magic Kingdom

Today’s 12:00 p.m. performance of Disney’s Festival of Fantasy parade at Magic Kingdom has been canceled and the 3:00 p.m. performance may also be canceled.

Guests at the park are receiving a push notification from My Disney Experience stating the parade is canceled and Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade will be performed instead.

In the app, a message from Magic Kingdom VP Melissa Valiquette states, “On behalf of all of us here at Magic Kingdom Park, I apologize that today’s 12 PM performance of Disney’s Festival of Fantasy Parade has been canceled. Our 3 PM performance may also be canceled. Instead, we will present a special edition of the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade with some of your favorite characters along the parade route at our parade times. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day here at Magic Kingdom!”

Exactly what constitutes a “special edition” of the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade isn’t clear, but we’ll be there to see. Stay tuned for more coverage.

  1. I sure hope they are readying changes to re-theme this parade to a “DISNEY50” parade.

    1. It’s a shame they couldn’t bring back the Remember the Magic parade they had for the 25th. I understand that such an interactive parade could not be done during COVID, but they wouldn’t need guest interactions. It just feels like they never intended to have anything specific for the 50th. I mean, Disneyland got the new Magic Happens parade, and even had Paint the Night, but for WDW, why bother? Too crowded for parades. And people will still visit with it without a new parade. Why invest in a parade that won’t significantly increase revenue?
