Many people will be happy with the next addition. Coming back is the “Festival of Fantasy” parade on March 9th. This is a special day because in 2014, March 9th is the day the “Festival of Fantasy” parade debuted. Some of the characters that will be seen in this parade are from “The Princess and the Frog,” “Tangled,” and “Peter Pan.” Also returning, in all her glory, is the Maleficent Dragon. 26 feet tall, 35 feet in length, this fire breathing dragon will dazzle guests through the streets of the Magic Kingdom.
