    Going to AK on the May 20. Have 1pm ADR at Tusker to get Nemo seat which is at 3:45 It appears Mickey's Jammin Parade is at 4. Am I right in that we will miss the parade or is there a different time to go to Nemo. Need out of AK by 6pm due 2 other ADR.


    Yes, you are correct. If you go to the Nemo 3:45 show, you will miss the parade. Nemo takes 30 minutes, and the parade is only about 15 minutes.

    But, there are other show times for Nemo throughout the day. While you can't use your Tusker House meal/Nemo show combo to secure a seat at another showing, if you plan correctly you can probably get in to an earlier showing during that same day.

    I can't tell you exact times of when the shows will occur, but when you get to the park check the tip board. It is located at the base of the Tree of Life, just as you get to Discovery Island as you enter the park from the Oasis.

    So my suggestion is that you try to catch an earlier showing of Nemo. If you succeed, then you can simply watch the parade in the afternoon, and you are set. If you do not get in to an earlier showing and you have to choose between the two, I would go for the Nemo show before the parade. Both are great, but I prefer the Nemo show.

    Have a magical vacation!
