Holiday cavalcades and entertainment at the Magic Kingdom 2020
Posted: Friday November 6, 2020 1:16pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Magic Kingdom begins its new Christmas holiday entertainment today with new offerings designed to work in the COVID-19 era of physical distancing.

Staying with the cavalcades format that the parks introduced back in July, there are 5 mini-parades that take place during the day at unannounced times, using the music from Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime parade.

Mickey’s Holiday Cavalcade includes Mickey, Minnie, Alice and Mad Hatter, Pinocchio and Geppetto, Pooh, Tigger, Mary Poppins and more.

Goofy’s Scrumptious Cavalcade features Goofy and Clarabelle cooking up some holiday fun from their gingerbread house and bake shop floats, joined by dancing Gingerbread Men.

The Main Street Philharmonic are joined by the Toy Soldiers for a march along Main Street U.S.A.

Santa's Christmas cavalcade includes the man himself accompanied by reindeer.

Watch the video below for a quick look at the new cavalcades.

Social distancing was a problem in only 1 line. The family behind us at ROTR was all over us. A dad and 3 kids and dad didn’t seem to care. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Good to hear. It’s weird not being there... I’m always at WDW for New Years!

Just left the Studios. Got in 7 rides in just over 7 hours with lunch and some shopping mixed in. Crowds were about what I expected for NYE. Mask compliance was exceptional! Going back after dinner.

Yup! It's likely due to the COVID restrictions that limit capacity.

Not happening. Just like Universal and Disney could have increased capacity just for one day (today)
