  • News New Parade for Magic Kingdom: Festival of Fantasy

    From Disney Parks Blog:
    Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Coming to Magic Kingdom Park in 2014 « Disney Parks Blog






    The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade will bring a celebration of New Fantasyland to Main Street, U.S.A., through fantastic and innovative new parade floats, vibrant costumes, and an original soundtrack that will feature beloved songs from favorite Disney films, plus a parade theme song.

    This parade will specifically highlight the stories of “The Little Mermaid,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Dumbo,” “Pinocchio,” “Peter Pan,” “Tangled” and the Disney●Pixar film “Brave” among others.
    Met Anna and Elsa over 1100 times and not afraid to admit it. Just let it go

    FINALLY!!!

    Looks like Steven's long-rumored "Festival of Fantasy" was true...and is soon to be real.

      Those float designs are beautiful!

      And the Peter Pan one is very clever - the anchor looks like the pendulum of a ticking clock!

        ORWEN: This is the most exciting news us cauldron girls have heard since vacuum cleaners could replace broomsticks--although I never quite managed to learn how to use a vacuum cleaner. Anyway, a new parade for the Magic Kingdon is long over-due. The Disney Character family has been complaining for years, now, about how much they would like to appear on all new floats in a different parade with all new music. Now they, too, can finally have a 'magical day'!

          Wonderful news. The new floats look fantastic and different than what we've seen in the past. Yay for new things!

            Because this is Steve Davison's team working on the parade, you could probably bet that the mirrored castle float is not returning. (Thankfully!)
            Fun fact: That one parade float has been in use since at least the 15th anniversary (1986). There's promo material out there that features it adorned with "15 years" banners.

              I remember it being on the parade for the 25th anniversary as well.

                From just these three pieces of concept art...it's looking like a blend of TDL's Jubilation! vs. HKDL's Flights of Fantasy.

                Based on that first piece of art, I wonder if Steven's working with the surrealist artist Ilene Meyer again, perhaps?



                ps. yeah, I have a feeling he certainly is NOT going to be using that hideous castle mirror float.

                  ORDDU: The castle float with mirrors isn't exactly hideous but it IS past due for retirement. It's been used as a 'one size fits all characters' float for much too long. Let's hope we never have to see it again.

                    This is just my opinion, but those character images on those floats look like they've been copied and pasted from elsewhere.
                    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

                    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
                    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
                    3. Splash Mountain
                    4. Mad Tea Party
                    5. Peter Pan's Flight
                    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

                        So what comes first? The parade, or the completion of Fantasyland.

                          ORDDU: Nobody knows the answer to that question, yet, Barbaraann, duckling.

                          ORWEN: Well, actually, we do because we looked into our crystal ball to find out. But we're not allowed to tell.

                            Rumors are going around that Celebrate a Dream Come True will be taken out of commission later this year, leaving the Magic Kingdom parade-less for a couple of months before Festival of Fantasy premieres in the spring. Can anyone confirm?

                              Unlikely. This is one of those rumors that starts because someone wonders outloud to themselves "do they have to stop the current parade because they are going to have to redecorate the floats".

                              Going on past history, the MK has not had to go paradeless in order to introduce a new parade. When the cast was told of the new parade, there was no mention of a afternoon parade Hiatus.

                              Is the rumor possible? Sure! Likely? Not really.
