    We have ADR at Crystal Palace for 6:20. Should we be able to see the 8:00 parade after if we plan to arrive by 6:00?


    I think you will probably be fine, though you may not get out of dinner early enough to stake a claim on one of the more desirable viewing locations.

    So you get there at 6:00 for a 6:20 reservation. You are still probably getting your table closer to 6:20, so no real savings there. They expect you to check in 15 minutes ahead of time anyway, so 5 minutes here or there is not going to change what happens.

    Assuming about an hour for dinner, you are back out in the park by 7:30. If you are visiting on a lighter night, then you probably will get a fairly decent, if not top-tier, viewing location. If you are there during a peak vacation time, you may have to scrounge around just to get a view. If the latter is the case, work over to Frontierland right after you leave the Crystal Palace. That area is often overlooked by most guests as a place to view the parade, and can get you closer to the action.

    Please feel free to send me any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
