The operating hours for 2014
have now been released and it looks to now be confirmed that the Magic Kingdom's afternoon parade will be closing at the end of 2013 to make-way for the new Festival of Fantasy Parade.
Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade plays during regular park hours during Christmas week, so it would seem that the final performance of Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade will be on or around December 19 2013.
The new Festival of Fantasy Parade is expected to begin in March 2014, giving a three month period to make adjustments and upgrades to the parade route and storage areas.
