    Best area to view "Mickeys not so scary Halloween Parade"

    Hi Sandra! The fall is one of my favorite times of year to head to Walt Disney World. Halloween is such a fun experience through the Mickey's No-So-Scary Halloween Party. This is held on certain nights from 7pm-midnight in the Magic Kingdom theme park.

    With your admission you will be able to ride some of the most popular attractions with fewer crowds, have special Halloween meet and greets, trick or treat, see the special Halloween parade and also the fireworks. The parade is absolutely my favorite one and it is a must see every year. My favorite spot to watch it is directly in front of Tony's restaurant on Main Street. As the parade makes the turn to the circle you get a full head on view of the floats and then as it straightens out as it goes by you there are great shots of the characters and the floats. Generally, this location is also not as crowded although I would still recommend you find your spot early before the first parade as that is the most crowded.

    Some parade lovers will say that watching it in front of the castle is the best so it is a very personal thing. Any spot near the castle hub will also be the most crowded too. For regular parades I like Frontierland but for the Halloween one I like in front of Tony's as it is at the exit and easy to head out to catch a bus.
