    Where is the best place to stand for the disney parade and firework show in Magic Kingdom? I am going to disney for the easter break. What are the times and dates for the parade and fireworks show at Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Sandra,

    Your trip is just around the corner & I know you are super excited!

    I personally like to stake out one spot that offers a great viewing location for both the MSEP & Wishes so I don't have to move between them. My favorite spot is near the end of Main Street USA (either side) just as it turns at the hub in front of Cinderella Castle. I like these spots because there are restrooms nearby in case my kids need to go during the wait. We can also grab a snack & make new friends while we wait.

    If you can't get a spot at the end of Main Street near the hub, I would suggest any place in the hub along the right side if you're facing Cinderella Castle. There are great views of the fireworks throughout the MK, but if you want to see Tinker Bell fly, the Main Street side of the castle is where you want to be.

    Parades at MK can start at either end of the parade route & can vary from day to day & parade. MSEP typically begins near the Harmony Barber Shop near City Hall as you enter the park. From there it takes a right & goes around in front of the train station & heads down Main Street. It goes towards the right at the hub in front of Cinderella Castle & turns right towards Liberty Square. Then it takes a left to go through Frontierland & ends near Splash Mountain.

    The route will be marked on your MK Guide Map. The Times Guide that you pick up along with it when you enter the park should confirm this - if not, check with Guest Relations or a Cast Member along Main Street.
