Festival of Fantasy Parade Adding Second Daily Showtime for November 2023 in Magic Kingdom

Ahead of the winter holidays, the Festival of Fantasy Parade will be adding a second showtime starting in November at Magic Kingdom.

Currently, guests can only see the Festival of Fantasy Parade at 3 p.m. — known to most as “the 3 o’clock parade.”

However, starting Thursday, November 9, 2023, a 12 p.m. parade will take place daily in addition to the 3 p.m. performance, according to the official Walt Disney World Resort operating calendar.

Per that same calendar, the final day with listed performance times for the parade is Saturday, December 2, 2023. After that, there are no performance times listed for Festival of Fantasy — though this is likely because the schedule has yet to be finalized beyond that date.


Also returning on November 9, 2023 is Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, which can only be seen during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The separately-ticketed event happens on select days in November and December. In years’ past, daytime performances of the parade have been added during Christmas week.

Will you be catching one of the additional performances of Festival of Fantasy while they’re available? Or do you use the parade to get more rides in during your visit to Magic Kingdom? Let us know in the comments.
