- Hello Jamie!
Thank you for your excellent questions, we love helping our virtual friends plan their vacations!
You are correct, those two parades have ended. The last "Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun Parade" was in April of 2013. The last "Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade" was January 4, 2014.
Disney has recently announced that "The Festival of Fantasy Parade" will be the new daytime parade for the Magic Kingdom and will begin sometime this spring. Despite there not being a traditional 3 o'clock parade in the Magic Kingdom during your visit, there are ample opportunities for entertainment along the parade route and Main Street, USA such as:
Main Street Electrical Parade (select nights)
Main Street Trolley Show
Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party
The meet and greets for Anna and Elsa from Frozen in Norway at Epcot and Merida from Brave in the Magic Kingdom have not been announced beyond January 31st. I would suggest checking these above links just prior to your trip to see if February dates will be included. Instead try planning on doing some of these other Princess Character Experiences until you know for sure.
Here is to having a magical vacation!
