    Lori from TN Asked

    How long does the Festival of Fantasy parade last? The only Mine Train FP+ availablility was for 2:55-3:55, but we don't want to miss the parade. Do you think we will have time to enjoy the parade and ride the Mine Train within that window?

    Hey, Lori!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so glad you asked because scheduling attractions is what Tiggers like me do best.

    You have plenty of time to attend both without the need to rush around like the White Rabbit from Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland.

    Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade step off begins at the intersection of Adventureland and Frontierland. If you are at the beginning of the parade route then you will not have to wait for the parade like the Guests near Town Square. You could be done with the parade by 3:25 p.m. It takes 12 minutes from the first to the last parade bar. 

    You have plenty of time to enjoy both Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Wahoo!

    Disney Dad Tip: FastPass+ reservation window is actually 80 minutes long. The window begins 5 minutes before the beginning time and ends 15 minutes after the end time.

    Lori, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
