    Is it true that there is no parade during the day at the MK in May? Also how late are the fireworks? Traveling with 21 mo old and 4 yr old and feel these are both activities they would enjoy. Is there another time of yr to go? Chose may bc of crowds. TKU!

    Hello Laurie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Mom Panel!

    You are correct. There is no daytime parade at the Magic Kingdom during the month of May. However, there is a 3:45pm performance of the Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade daily at the Animal Kingdom. The nighttime spectaculars are all keeping their regular times in May. Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studio is daily at 8:30pm, Illumination at Epcot is at 9:00pm and Wishes at the Magic Kingdom is at 10:00pm.

    If you are looking for a different time of year to visit which features similar crowds to May I would suggest the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The parks are decorated for Christmas making it even more magical, if that's possible. There is a parade in the Magic Kingdom everyday as well as special holiday touches all around the parks.

    Have a magical day!
