'Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade' will perform during regular Magic Kingdom hours from December 22 2021.

The parade will take place at 12pm and 3:45pm from December 22 to December 29, and then at 12pm and 3:30pm on December 30 and 31 2021.

'Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade' made its return in November as part of 'Disney Very Merriest After Hours,' the new ticketed event at Magic Kingdom. Learn more about 'Disney Very Merriest After Hours.'



Although the parade is back, with the familiar music and floats, it is a significantly cut-down version of the classic holiday parade.


The vast majority of the dancers that fill in the spaces between the floats are missing, giving the parade more of a cavalcade feel than an entire Magic Kingdom parade spectacular.

Oh yikes I guess I meant the Holiday projection on ToT and how long into January that runs. I am blanking on the name 😅

18 months from Oct 1, unless it gets extended.

Do you mean what time at night? Or what date it ends? I assume it runs all the way through the rest of the 50th Celebration.

Does anyone know when Beacon of Magic stops at HS? I tried to google but I couldn’t find any confirmed dates.

They were recently allowed to start wearing them. Omnicron is ripping through cast members.

My DS plays French Horn. They had a mask with a velcro opening for the mouthpiece. So, it's possible to do that. But, he was very happy to have that requirement stopped at that beginning of this month.

I don't recall anyone masked for Candlelight the first week of December except for a few instrumentalists... obviously not the wind instruments, tho.

We went to Epcot yesterday and saw the early candlelight show and my wife noticed that some of the performers were wearing mask while singing. Not just the golden choir but some voices as well. They looked like a solid color and not the blue pixie ones the average Cast wear. Has this been happening all season? Or was this new? I watched a you tube video of it earlier this year and don’t remember them being there.
