Journaling: I was losing steam, especially after this third straight day of walking the theme parks, so we rode the train back to Main Street. I wanted to go in some of the shops and find postcards (which were not available) and 2 tee shirts for Cali and Madeline, which I found. We stepped back out on the street and found people starting to line up and we realized that it was for a parade. We hadn’t planned on staying but, hey, we were here and we found a place from which to watch. It was at the end of the route at the Town Center by the train station. Dennis wanted to shot a video of it and was up on some steps while I was right at street level. He forgot to give me the camera so I had to take photos on my phone camera and unfortunately the video didn’t come out but we were happy that we ended up staying for the parade.
Paying homage to the unbridled magic and vivid pageantry of Fantasyland and its many inhabitants, the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is a thrilling sight-and-sound spectacular that winds its way through the streets of Magic Kingdom Park each afternoon at 3. It begins in Frontierland and winds its way past the castle and then down Main Street to town Center (where we were). The parade state-of-the-art floats were spectacular, starring characters from many favorite Disney stories, plus colorfully costumed performers on stilts, pendulums and swings. A garden of Disney princesses, Little Mermaid characters and dancers, Peter Pan flying in a pirate galleon, Mickey and Minnie in a hot air balloon but my favorite was Maleficent (from Sleeping Beauty, as a fire-breathing dragon. All in all it’s a dazzling sight and a festival of fun for everyone!
