Disney Theme Park

Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade

The "Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade" celebrates New Fantasyland with new innovative floats, costumes and an all-new soundtrack that features songs from popular Disney films. A new theme song has also been developed for the parade. In this parade, we see nods to The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Dumbo, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Tangled and Brave, as well as many others.

The floats are designed to look as if they were created by the characters they represent and truly bring each story to life as it moves down the street. 

Ariel and her friends ride on an oversized music box decorated like a colorful "Under the Sea" party. 

This parade replaced the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade, which ended 1/4/14.

 

 

Merida's float is a giant bagpipe surrounded by Scottish dancers.  Joining Merida on the float are her triplet brothers, in bear form.
