Magic Kingdom Fireworks and Parades
There isn't a more magical way to end your day of fun at Walt Disney World than by enjoying a spectacular display of fireworks in Magic Kingdom Park! The Magic Kingdom's entertainment offers several shows and parades from various vantage points giving guests options depending on what they're looking for. Try choosing different locations throughout the park to watch the parade - Main Street, U.S.A. is always a favorite, but it's fun to discover new favorite locations where you might notice something you've never seen before.
From dessert parties inside the park with incredible views of Cinderella Castle to specialty fireworks cruises on the Seven Seas Lagoon, there is sure to be something for everyone. Guests who don't want to miss the breathtaking projections on the Castle during Once Upon a Time and Happily Ever After will want to enjoy those shows from inside the Magic Kingdom for the best views.

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. Read More...
Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party
As part of Mickey & Minnie's Surprise Celebration, this high-energy parade heads down Main Street towards Cinderella Castle several times a day. Mickey, Minnie, and their pals will invite guests to dance along in front of Cinderella Castle. Shake it along with live singers belting out new arrangements of classic and catchy “Mickey Mouse Club” songs. The street party involves stilt walkers and much more. Photos from the street party that are posted to Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #MoveItShakeItPics may be used in the finale. Formerly known as the Move It, Shake It, Dance & Play It! Street Party.
This nightly "parade" was first performed on October 26, 1971 during the dedication of the Polynesian Luau. While old-fashioned by today's standards, it's still fun to head to the resort beachfronts to watch it go by. The water pageant can be seen from the boat-loading are at the Magic Kingdom, as well as all each resort around Bay Lake. It normally starts at 9:00 each night, but check the Times Guide to be sure. There are two segments, one is a King Neptune theme, the other a salute to America.
