Walt Disney World previews its new Festival of Fantasy parade units
Written by Robert Niles
Walt Disney World is cranking up the publicity in anticipation of the debut of its new Festival of Fantasy parade in the Magic Kingdom next month, today releasing new photos and details about the upcoming production.Tweet
Here's what you can expect when the new parade starts rolling down the Magic Kingdom parade route in March, with float descriptions from Disney's press release.
The Princess Garden – This pageantry of princesses celebrates Disney royalty. Cinderella, Tiana and Belle accompanied by their respective princes, ride in a garden of topiaries with woodland creatures, birds and more. Cinderella’s dress playfully twirls like a turntable, while Swan Court couples lead the 50-foot-long majestic float, capped off with a special appearance by Anna and Elsa from Disney’s hit animated feature, “Frozen.”
Disney used 3D printing to create some of the unique costume pieces from the parade, bringing to life designs by Mirena Rada, who has created costumes for the Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, in addition to this production now for Walt Disney World.
Again, the parade will debut sometime next month, though Disney's not yet announced a specific date.
