No Daisy in Festival of Fantasy yesterday afternoon...Donald was solo! Thumper, Rabbit, and Miss Bunny were the featured rabbits in the pre-parade. (Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny were in the classic car, too.).

Daisy did not appear in 3:30 Festival of Fantasy Parade yesterday, only the Easter pre-parade.

Saw a video and Daisy was in the Parade but the White Rabbit wasn't. Was Daisy in the Festival of Fantasy parade because if she was, she would have got dressed very quickly!

So sorry did not check what I had wrote. Does anyone have a video?

Yep! Mobile is my hometown and being an Azalea Trail Maid is a big deal to a lot of girls. It's always fun to see them on TV.

They are not Aztec...they are "Official Ambassadors" for the city of Mobile, Alabama. Their dresses are representative of the Azalea flowers that are abundant in the Mobile area so much so that the city is nicknamed "The Azalea City"

Thanks for the update. Sorry my original info was wrong, although better early than late!

I'm sitting in the hub right now and the pre- parade starts at 3:15 not 2:45.

I remember that when the old Cypress Gardens had a similar offering and the ladies walked around. That place was gorgeous. Amazing some things you can remember. I still remember some of their ski shows. Didn't they have a Baywatch themed one at one point? lol

Just a random thought here . . . I wonder if WDW ever invited them to make an appearance at the Flower & Garden Festival as well. (In a retro theme, the old Cypress Gardens attraction featured some of their staff members in somewhat similar, beautiful costumes, strolling throughout the park.)

It is at 2:45 on both days.

Saturdays parade is apparently at 3:30, according to MDX. Does that mean the Saturday pre-paraded will be 3:15, or will they just do it a full 45 minutes before the actual parade?

Both days, 2:45 parade only.

Any idea if Azalea Trail Maids will be in the Saturday parade(s) this year like the normally are, or just Sunday this time around? I was hoping to catch them tomorrow afternoon since I can't be there in Sunday.
