    What is the advantage to using FastPass or FastPass+ for attractions such as parades and firework displays?

    Hi, Ron!

    My family had the pleasure of using the FastPass+ for Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade a couple weeks ago and, I have to tell you, it was the best! Usually during the very busy week between Christmas and the New Year, if you want a "front row seat" to watch the parade, you have to claim your spot very early...sometimes hours before the parade starts.

    Well, we didn't have to do that at all. We played in the Park until about 10 minutes before the start of the parade. At that point, we checked in at the FastPass+ viewing spot and enjoyed the best view! We were right up front and there was plenty of room to move around and take pictures without having to worry about losing our spots. It was just fabulous!

    If you see either of these FastPass+ options available in your My Disney Experience account, I highly recommend using them! You'll really love your view and the extra time you have!

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel, Ron! I sure hope this helps!

    Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
