Top 10 Disney World moments of the RV Year! #10: Festival of Fantasy Parade!

Nancy Powell1 Comment

Because we had the luxury of time and the budget booster of an RV to live in, we stayed at Disney's Ft. Wilderness Campground for two magical weeks!  We loved it and STILL were not ready to leave when our wonderful vacation came to an end.

There has to be such a thing as too much Disney, but we haven't gotten there yet.

It is almost overwhelming to think of blogging about all we saw and did there.  And, while I want to remember the highlights in detail, I am sure that is all anyone else wants to read--the highlights!  So, I have attempted to narrow down the amazing time into 10 of our favorite experiences and will count them down.  

Although, to be honest, we loved all of these and they are not necessarily from 10th favorite up to 1st, strictly speaking. On any given day a few might be interchangeable depending on the nostalgia. 

10. THE FESTIVAL OF FANTASY PARADE

Yes, all of the Disney parades are fantastic, but the costumes in this one put it OVER THE TOP!

 Here is a picture from Disney of one of the sea creatures that accompanies Ariel.

We had a great place for viewing from the Railroad Station at the entrance! Absolutely wonderful spot!

 We loved our front row seats!

Of course there are all the favorite characters you would expect to see. Anna! Elsa!

We really love The Little Mermaid. Petunia and Ariel go way back.  

Some of the most stunning costumes were part of her undersea crew!

An addition to the parade that we appreciated seeing was an expanded role for Peter Pan!  That is the other favorite story in our household.  Petunia is a huge fan of Tinkerbell (and all fairies) and Peter Pan himself.  

I've never seen The Lost Boys at Disney World before, but they are in this parade!

And look at Captain Hook's ship!

 Mark captured this quick, special moment!

One of the neatest things in this parade had to do with Sleeping Beauty and her dragon-slaying Prince Philip.  First, her fairies...

...and then the dragon!  Oh no! Thank goodness the prince was there to battle it!

 This picture from Disney shows just how fierce that creature is!

The floats were whimsical, colorful, and elaborate.  Watching this we were transported to a fantasy world!

Farewell!

Hope you enjoyed an introduction to this parade with us! We'll be back with another favorite memory soon!
