The other day, Magic Kingdom was the victim of a nasty rain storm, but that did not stop Guests as many gathered on Main Street, U.S.A. to catch the Festival of Fantasy parade. Unfortunately, however, one of the parade floats experienced technical difficulties and broke down mid-route — forcing the Disney Cast Members to walk the rest of the way (in the pouring rain!)
