Disney has been running two showings of Festival of Fantasy, including a 12:00 p.m. and a 3:00 p.m. show, each day. However, starting this August, there are several days in which the parade will have just one time, with the 12:00 p.m. show removed from the schedule.

According to the Disney World website, August 4, August 6, August 8, and August 10 will all only have a 3:00 p.m. performance. No other alterations to the schedule have been made just yet, but it seems that Disney is attempting to cut back on the showtimes heading into the late summer and looking ahead to fall.
