The Parades of the Magic Kingdom: When the Unexpected Makes a Lasting Memory

Disney changes aspects of an attraction, parade or show over time to keep experiences fresh for guests.

This is a memory that will always make our family chuckle. During this trip in August 2009, we traveled with another family to the Magic Kingdom. After a great morning of roaming through the parks, we grabbed our spots for the 3 o’clock parade. I’m sure we were all a bit tired, but Ashley just couldn’t stay awake. In fact, she took this one photograph with most of us and proceeded to knock out in my sister’s lap.

Ashley slept through the entire parade. Since we had taken our video camera, we joked that she would see it when we got home. What we did not realize was that we would have a special memory that I have never heard of from any other guests. Take a look at the video below. I apologize for its blurriness, but if you scroll up to 00:06:30 on the bar at the bottom you will hear something that will make even the grumpiest of people crack a smile.

One of the Parade Dancers saw poor Ashley and began to yell, “Wake up!! You’re missing it!! Wake Up!! You could have slept at home for FREE!! Oh My Goodness!!” What a funny memory!

Do you have a special memory from a parade?
