According to Disney, guests who visit Magic Kingdom between December 22-31 will be able to see daytime performances of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. This will technically be the first daytime parade to return to Magic Kingdom since COVID-19 shut down the parks back in March 2020. Disney has said that Festival of Fantasy will return in early 2022, but has not given a date for its return yet. There will be no additional charge to view the parade, and anyone in Magic Kingdom will be able to watch.
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade will be performed at 12pm and 3pm daily.
Disney cut nearly 90 performers from Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade as well as cut out some units from the performance. What used to be a nearly 20-minute performance has been cut down to just under 10 minutes. For a comparison, check out our article below.
