Walt Disney World Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom


Life got in the way and I was not able to attend the opening day of the Walt Disney World Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom.  As disappointed as I was, I loved the pictures and videos that were captured during this new Disney parade come across my computer monitor.  I’m happy to say that this past Sunday my assistant (aka. daughter) Jayla and I were able to make our way to Magic Kingdom to see this wonderful addition to Disney in person.

I wanted to ensure Jayla and I had a great seat for the parade, so we claimed our spot around 2 PM right in from of the Emporium near Town Square.  We sat directly across from The Confectionery.  The first reason I picked this side was for the shade!  It was a beautiful day, but the Florida sun can be harsh.  The second reason I picked this spot was so that it was not as convenient to get in and out of The Confectionery, meaning I would  not spend every dime I had in there on Cotton Candy and Candy Apples.  Don’t worry, my assistant didn’t go without.  I did pay her with 1 bag of cotton candy and a lemonade!

Shortly after 3 PM, we saw the first float make it’s way in front of the castle, circle around the hub and start heading straight towards us down Main St.  My first thought was “WOW”!  I was truly impressed with with the colors in this parade.  It was so vibrant, and was clearly visible all from one end of Main Street to the other.  Once the parade arrived, I found myself staring at all of the little details.  Feathers, make-up, flowers and the list goes on and on.  There were so many fine details on each costume and float.  It truly was a festival of fantasy in design alone.

As the parade proceeded past us, Jayla and I got more and more excited about each float and each character we’d see.  The parade had most almost all of our favorites included.  We truly had a magical time at this parade viewing.  I debated not taking pictures during this time, since it was my first time viewing the Walt Disney World Festival of Fantasy parade, but I’m so glad I did.  You know the saying, a picture is worth 1,000 words.   So now I share with you several thousand words in the form of pictures.  I hope you these images help bring a little Disney magic into your day and I truly hope you get to visit Walt Disney World very soon so that you can experience it too.

I would love to hear from you.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  And don’t forget to click “Follow Taking the Florida Plunge” on the right hand side of your screen!
