Parades at Walt Disney World

By Dave Shute

(This page is one of a series explicating Walt Disney World lingo, abbreviations, and FAQ for first time family visitors to Walt Disney World.)

Note: as an aftereffect of COVID, there are no formal parades right now.

Brief “cavalcades” and “processionals” happen along the Magic Kingdom parade route between 10a and 4.45p. “Motorcades” are happening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and cavalcades also happen in World Showcase at Epcot, and on Discovery River at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.


While there have been as many as four parades at Disney World, currently there’s just one, the afternoon Festival of Fantasy parade at the Magic Kingdom, typically every day at 3p.
