Earlier this year, the 3 o’clock parade got an update at the Magic Kingdom with the debut of the new Festival of Fantasy Parade. Now, it appears as if they daily multi-time parade known as Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It! Street Party will be updated as well.
As of now, the name of the parade is set to remain, but there are going to be some serious changes as a complete overhaul is coming to the new Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It! which is set to debut around October of this year.
The Mad Hatter, Lumiere, and Sebastian currently top the floats, but they’re going to be removed from the parade and replaced with others.
Now, the tops of floats will have Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy on top of them. Stitch is also expected to be added into the Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It Parade.
There will be brand new floats, new music, and a few other changes as well. Essentially, expect an almost brand new parade.
It’s not known if the “street party” aspect of the parade will continue with the floats stopping at the Cinderella Castle hub for characters to dance with guests.
Disney has not officially given word of these changes or confirmed anything at this time. With that being said, changes are always possible from what is being reported and it’s possible that nothing could change or happen at all.
As of now though, I’m going to be heading to Magic Kingdom soon and getting a good recording of Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It! just in case.
