    I cannot find a Disney issued schedule of the parades and firework shows for January 2014. Is there an avail schedule before we leave, or only accessible in the Times Guide day of? Will Merida still be a character greeting in January 2014? Thx

    Hi, Stacey!

    I took a look at a random date in January on Walt Disney World's website, just to see what's posted there at this time. I was able to see Magic Kingdom performance times, parade times and character greetings, too, for January 6th, 2014. I got to that page by selecting "Magic Kingdom" in the "Parks & Tickets" tab, then clicking on "Entertainment". Once that page opened up, I clicked on the calendar icon near the top of the white rectangle, on the right, then advanced the calendar page to January. Click on any date in blue and you'll see what's scheduled at this time (subject to change, of course).

    For a different view, head to Walt Disney World's website, then hover over "Parks & TIckets"; in the box that opens, look to the right at the bottom for "More Park Hours" and click on it. At the top of the new page, you'll see another calendar icon; click on it and advance to the dates in January you'd like to view. The list of park hours which then opens up allows you to click on each park; doing so will open up that day's schedule in that particular park, including parade times and fireworks as well. In this version, the schedule for Magic Kingdom on January 6th, 2014 looks a bit different, but the times are the same.

    Merida currently Meets and Greets Guests at Magic Kingdom's Fairytale Garden, however times have not been extended yet to January of 2014. Check back on the website as your dates get closer for more information.

    Hope this helps you find what you need, Stacey!
