    Has anyone used the new magic band fastpass for the Electrical Parade or Wishes Fireworks? Really debating/wondering if it is worth using up a fast pass on these. Thanks - Going to be in Disney in 3 weeks.

    Hi Jessica! My suggestion is to not use up a fastpass for either the parades or the fireworks if it is offered to you. There are many great spots along the Main Street and through the park route where you can find a place to watch by just showing up a little early. My top choices are either in Frontierland or near the Town Hall or Main Street Theater. Definitely do not worry about the fireworks as just standing in front of the castle with all the other guests will still give you a great view and show. If you don't mind missing the front of the castle  things then head to Tomorrowland and watch from there as it is less crowded and yet still a good view.

    The Magic Kingdom has so many great attractions offering fastpass+ that choosing only three of those becomes most difficult. Remember that everyone in your family does not have to do the same thing so if you have some thrill seekers who want Space Mountain you can let them choose that while others choose something more calm at the same time.

    Have a magical vacation.....will be here before you know it!
