Disastrous Festival of Fantasy Parade

The fan that keeps the balloon inflated stopped working.

It’s not easy putting on a parade every day – sometimes twice a day! – and have it go perfectly every time.

Sometimes, it’s the weather that won’t cooperate, sometimes it’s the sound system, and sometimes it’s a little bit of everything that goes wrong during the parade!

Such was the case with the FoF parade today.  What could go wrong, did go wrong.

The music got off from the character floats, then the dragon stopped and wouldn’t exit the parade route backing up all the floats behind it.


The grand finale float with Mickey and Minnie balloon’s collapsed just as it was entering the town square.

Watch the last 4 minutes of this video from when the dragon loses his steam and won’t exit the parade route on: Bad Festival of Fantasy Parade.

What the parade finale float should look like.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
