It’s just not a trip to Walt Disney World without lining up to catch one of the park’s festive parades, but don’t assume once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all: Disney World in Orlando has debuted a fresh new twist on its parade tradition with its Festival of Fantasy Parade.
Nearly 100 performers bring more than a dozen of Disney’s fairytales to life on Main Street, U.S.A. during the daily parade. Classics like “Peter Pan” and “Sleeping Beauty” will be celebrated with newcomers like “Tangled” and “Brave” through floats, fanciful costumes and an original soundtrack inspired by the films.
“The parade celebrates and pays homage to what the Magic Kingdom is all about,” said Randy Wojcik, senior show director Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Creative Entertainment. “It has the most beautiful floats, enchanting characters, vibrant costumes that come to life; and the choreography is just glorious. Yet, it is also very kinetic, relevant and powerful on a scale never seen before at Walt Disney World.”
