Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Debuts at Magic Kingdom (3/9/14)

The new daytime spectacular, Disney Festival of Fantasy, came to life at the Magic Kingdom, on Sunday March 9th, 2014. Under the guidance of Creative Director Steven Davidson, this parade is one of the grandest that has ever been staged in the park. This daytime spectacular features floats by designer Richard Improta (including a 53-foot long, Steampunk-inspired Maleficent fire breathing dragon), beautiful costume designs by Mirena Rada, new original music by composer Mark Hammond and choreography by Stephen Di Schiavi.

Fun Facts:
* Not including the Maleficent Dragon, the tallest float is Mickey's Airship in the finale, reaching 32 feet high.
* 39 new costumes were designed for the parade, using 27 custom-made fabrics.
* Some of the costume accessories and sculpted pieces on floats were 3-D printed from digital designs.
* The parade floats are powered by new, long-lasting, energy-efficient battery systems.
Festival of Fantasy starts out with Beauty & The Beast
