*Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade ended in March 2023, along with the rest of Walt Disney World’s 50th-anniversary celebration. The information below is for historical reference only.
Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade is a mini pop-up parade that celebrates the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. This cavalcade runs multiple times per day at Magic Kingdom Park.
Characters in Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade include Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Pluto, and Chip ‘n’ Dale.
Each character is dressed in their EARidescent outfits that were designed to celebrate the park’s anniversary. Here is a photo of a few of the characters.
When Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade first debuted, you could see the characters waving to guests from the train station at Main Street U.S.A., before and after the cavalcade.
Like other cavalcades at Magic Kingdom, this one steps off in Frontierland near Tiana’s Bayou Adventure (the former Splash Mountain.) Then the cavalcade continues to Liberty Square where it moves to the hub in front of Cinderella Castle. After that, it straightens up as it heads down Main Street U.S.A.
These photos were taken at the very end of the parade route from Town Square. From there, I watched the first Festival of Fantasy Parade.
Then, I met Mickey Mouse inside Town Square Theater. After that, I ran into Snow White, and the next thing I knew, Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade was coming through.
Often I have found the longer I stay on Main Street U.S.A., the more I get to see and do. It’s no telling what magic awaits if you decide to hang out there for a little while.
Times for Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade are usually:
- 10:45 a.m.
- 1:35 p.m.
- 4:25 p.m.
You’ll want to check Disney’s site here or the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit for the exact time.
Mickey’s Celebration Cavalcade includes several dancers who bring tons of energy even on the hottest days. I always marvel at their performances.
And it’s always fun to see Mickey Mouse! Remember, at the end of the day, it all started with a mouse.
