The three-o’clock parade has a long history in Magic Kingdom, but they weren’t always at 3:00. However, since 1985, parades have traditionally been at that time.
Now, Disney World is changing the time of Magic Kingdom’s Festival of Fantasy parade from 3:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Festival of Fantasy floats will start at Frontierland at 2 PM, continue through Liberty Square, snake around Cinderella Castle hub, travel down Main Street USA, and end in Town Square. This parade is only 12 minutes long, so take this into consideration when choosing your parade spot (or route around) during this time!
