Thanks to John at run.geek.rundisney and Katie from Adventures by Katie for hosting! On this Magical Mickey Monday, I will be discussing the Festival of the Fantasy parade.
I finally saw this parade 2 weeks ago after hearing amazing things for so long. I didn't see it in May because the chances of it getting rained out are high (the 2 times I did try and see it, it rained!).
We decided to get fastpass+ to ensure we saw it. We had prime viewing in front of the castle and it was not crowded at all.
This parade did not disappoint. I LOVED IT! The floats were amazing and so detailed and so were the costumes. And the dragon is truly a sight to be seen.
The characters in the parade:
Mickey,Minnie, Donald, Goofy
Ariel from the Little Mermaid
Elsa and Anna form Frozen
Tiana and Naveen from Princess and the Frog
Rapunzel and Eugene from Tangled
Maleficient dragon and 3 fairies and Prince Philip from Sleeping Beauty
Peter, Wendy, Captain Hook from Peter Pan
Belle and Beast from Beauty and the Beast
Merida from Brave
We will definitely see it in June when I go with my family and I know my little sister will freak because all of her favorite characters are in it- Ariel, Tiana, Anna and Elsa, Rapunzel, etc.
I can't recommend this parade enough. Another thing is it is pretty short-I think 15 min total. Would I use FP+? Probably not as there is good viewing points in frontier land. However if you want to get prime viewing right in front of the castle and not have to worry about it, FP+ is the way to go.
What do you think about the Festival of Fantasy Parade?
