Festival of Fantasy Parade at the Magic Kingdom is packed with whimsy and wonder

The Festival of Fantasy Parade debuted on March 9 at the Magic Kingdom, and it's already a smash hit. People line the streets well ahead of time to stake out a great spot where they can see floats honoring such movies as "Frozen" and "Rapunzel" and watch the malevolent Maleficent dragon. There are plenty of street performers, too, like the Lost Boys who head up the Peter Pan float and the bubbly performers who accompany Ariel.

While all the floats are amazing, the Maleficent float is a true masterpiece. Jump to this article for a slideshow of the float and its performers.
