Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade will Start Performing Twice a Day at Magic Kingdom Soon!

It looks like Disney is preparing for those holiday crowds by returning to two performances of the Festival of Fantasy Parade a day. Personally, I enjoyed having the parade run twice a day. I think it gave everyone a chance to see the performance.

The calendar on My Disney Experience that lists showtimes has been updated to show that starting November 8th, the parade will run twice on select dates with varying times. November 8th is also the first day of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which is one of the busiest times other than summer.

Dates and Times

  • November 8-10, 14, 15-17, 19-30: 12:00 p.m. at 3 p.m.
  • November 11, 18: 12:30 p.m. at 3:30 p.m.

From what we can see on the calendar, this will trickle into December. The system hasn’t added anything after December 3rd, but I think that will change in the next few weeks. I believe this will continue until the week of Christmas approaches, and once we enter the new year Festival of Fantasy will return to one performance a day.

There are two days in November when the parade will only perform once, and I am not sure why because the My Disney Experience App shows that the park closes at 11 pm.

Once a Day Showing

  • November 12 & 13: at 2 pm

As I stated earlier, I’m glad they will be returning to this schedule, even if it’s just for a short period of time. Do you all think Disney will do this each time a “busy” season creeps up on us? I think it will become standard practice, but I want to know what you think. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Hi, I'm Erica, and I write about all things Disney. Before working for The DIS, I was a theme park performer at SeaWorld, but I also performed at Disney. I have such an immense love for theme parks to the point I studied them in college.
