Disney from a Teen’s Perspective: Festival of Fantasy Parade

FOF Ariel

We’ve all heard the tourists ask “what time is the three-o-clock parade.” We all snicker knowing that it’s clearly at three. Anyway, the Festival of Fantasy parade is probably my favorite by far. It’s bright, colorful, and full of magic.


All of your favorites are in the parade, the good guys and bad guys. One of my favorite floats is the Tangled one. Even Maximus is in it swinging around with Flynn Rider! The dancers pull the whole parade together. Without them it would just be floats!

The music also pulls the parade together. It just makes you want to get up and dance! As soon as the “royal welcome” comes on, you know it’s time to get up and dance! Seeing all the smiles from my little brother and sister make it extra magical.

Overall, you MUST see this parade! You just have to! Seeing all the smiles will definitely make your day! If you’ve seen the parade, what’s your favorite part? If you haven’t seen it yet, who do you hope to see in the parade?

    Nice article; you are definitely an Ariel fan. Myself I am a fan of Merida and think of her as my granddaughter. The steam-punk dragon is my favorite part of this parade. Then there is the Hallowishes parade favorite is the night watchman and his bloodhound.
