Festival of Fantasy Parade

I've always loved a parade, and few parades are better than the ones at Disney parks. Disney World's latest parade is called the Festival of Fantasy Parade. When I saw the first artist renderings from this parade, I knew it would be something special, and now Disney has released photos of some of the floats and costumes, it looks even more exciting. I am amazed by the beauty and magic of these floats. They are just incredible. I'm especially fond of the Brave float and am awed by the Maleficent steampunk inspired float. Which one are you most looking forward to?
The Brave float has been made to look like a giant Scottish bagpipes. Merida, and her three brothers in bear form, will be accompanied by dancers in Tartan kilts and highland dancer dresses.
The dancers for the Little Mermaid float have spectacular costumes. This Lionfish is particularly stunning.
But the Shell Girl is also beautiful. Disney has employed 3D printing technology to create her headress as well as that of the Raven on the Maleficent float.
The Lost Boys from the Peter Pan float appear to have gotten a bit of an update. Their new costumes were inspired by Newsies.
The Tangled float is accompanied by Thugs from the Snugly Duckling, as well as Festival dancers.
The Maleficent float is an amazing steampunk dragon that is a full 35 feet long and 26 feet tall. I can't wait to see it!
 The Raven costume that accompanies the Maleficent float is gorgeous. It seems like a perfect match to the dragon float.
Another Maleficent float performer is the Thorn Hedge Stiltwalker. It is an incredible costume made up of vines and thorns.

The Festival of Fantasy parade will arrive in the Magic Kingdom on March 9, 2014.
