Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade: Fun Facts

The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade continues a long tradition of classic parades in the Magic Kingdom dating back to opening day more than 45 years ago. Some fun facts:-
  • Duration 12 Minutes
  • Parade features a cast of more than 100
  • Disney characters from more than a dozen classic stories are represented among nine parade floats
  • 40 additional characters are presented in animated or sculptural form
  • Performers appear on stilts, swings and pendulums, bringing a kinetic energy to the procession
  • The Princess Garden lead float stretches more than 50 feet long
  • The Jolly Roger atop the Peter Pan float flies 28 feet above the parade route
  • Mickeys Airship finale float is the tallest float topping out at 32 feet
  • The trio of finale floats span more than 90 feet along the parade route
  • Elaborate costumes were crafted by 10 different costume houses, in eight cities, in two countries including Creative Costuming facilities in both Florida and California.
  • Some 27 separate custom designed fabrics were designed by costume designer Mirena Rada in collaboration with Creative Costuming Graphic Artist Paul Jordan.
  • Counting interfacings and trims, it takes 28 separate fabrics to make up one Swing Thug #1 Costume (Tangled unit). His vest requires vinyl to be cut into 75 separate diamond shapes and then stitched onto cool max fabric.

  • The socks worn by the Lost Boys (Peter Pan unit) are custom designs that were knitted to order in Hong Kong.
  • Minnie Mouses Dress and Hat (finale unit) uses 95 gold lame dots that are cut out, blinged out, and then sewn on.
  • The Bubble Girl (finale unit) headpiece is made from three separate clown wigs that are blended together by the Creative Costuming Millinery Team.
  • Cha Cha Girl (finale unit) Her wig was designed with 148 yards of horsehair in four colors, that is then rolled, pressed and curled by hand.
  • The Steampunk-inspired Maleficent Dragon stretches 53 feet from snout to tail and reaches 26 feet in the air.
  • Disney Parks Live Entertainment team members partnered with Tony Award-winning designer Michael Curry on the development of the Maleficent Dragon.
