Don’t Miss Out! New Parade Schedule Takes Effect at Magic Kingdom February 18th. Right now we get double runnings of Adventure Friends Cavalcade, and a single run of the Festival of Fantasy Parade in the Magic Kingdom, but that is shifting back starting February 18th, 2024.
On January 16th Festival of Fantasy went down to only showing at 3:00 PM, and Adventure Friends Cavalcade ran at 10:30 AM and 11:45 AM. We can only guess this change happened because we were coming up on the supposed ‘slow’ season. Much easier to run the Cavalcades 2x, than the whole Parade.
On February 18th, 2024, the Magic Kingdom Parade times will be as follows:
Festival of Fantasy Parade – Celebrate the spirit of Disney as Magic Kingdom Park comes alive with music and dance during a tribute to the tales of Fantasyland – Time 12:00 PM & 3:00 PM
Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade – See some favorite Disney pals as they make their way through Magic Kingdom Park on a grand adventure! Times – 5:10 PM
Magic Marches Down the Street
