After a year and a half absence, parades finally returned to the Walt Disney World Resort last night in the form of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.

What’s Happening:

  • Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade first began at the Magic Kingdom back in 2007, and has seen its fair share of change and updates throughout the years.
  • After not appearing last holiday season due to COVID restrictions, the parade is back for Disney Very Merriest After Hours Party. That makes this the first full fledged parade to return to Walt Disney World since March 2020.
  • The updated parade does feature less floats and performers than in the past, likely due to social distancing protocols.
  • Check out our full video of this year’s edition of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade below:
