We LOVE the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Walt Disney World. The upbeat song, dancing in the streets, and jubilant atmosphere really make this one of our favorite parade experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort. Plus- what’s not to love about the enormous fire breathing Maleficent dragon!?

We at Moffits- Mad Hatter Adventures are being asked a very popular question. The chatter is frequent and the speculation running wild. Since the Main Street Electrical Parade left Orlando for Disneyland last fall, everyone would like to know- what about the Paint the Night Parade? Will there be a new parade at Walt Disney World? Will there be no parade at all? What is going on?

We have been told by sources at Disney that the Paint the Night Parade is packed up and going somewhere- but we are hopeful that they will announce exactly where soon. Many multitudes of fans are hoping that the beautiful spectacle of dazzling lights will wind up at Walt Disney World, but it could go elsewhere (Tokyo is a strong rumor).

Paint the Night is an amazing parade (it is my favorite of all that I have seen at Disney Parks). It features more modern characters and very impressive technology. The parade only ran for a short duration during Disneyland’s 60th Diamond Celebration.

What do YOU think? Would you love to see Paint the Night come to Walt Disney World Resort? Comment and let us know.

Festival of Fantasy Parade- New Start Time!

News today from Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom! The Festival of Fantasy Parade will begin at 2:00pm rather than the traditional 3:00pm beginning August 20, 2017.

The prevalent parade time has been 3:00pm for many years, and it is a common joke among Cast Members that Disney guests tend to ask “when does the three o’clock parade begin”? (As a former CM myself, I can tell you that yes, that actually has happened, more than once.)

There are also rumors swirling on social media about the Paint the Night Parade and the possibility of it coming to WDW. While we have no official word on that as of yet, we will keep you posted.

What are your thoughts? Would you like Paint the Night to appear at WDW? Happy about the new Festival of Fantasy Parade time in August? Comment and let us know!
