    Where is the best spot to catch the parade and stay put for the fireworks where you can get that great castle view? Thanks!

    Hi Tarah!
    Great question!! I have my two favorite places to suggest, but it will involve staking someone out in advance of the parade. My first spot is up on the Main Street Train Station balcony facing the Castle down Main Street. There are a few tables and chairs available, but they tend to go first. Even if you have to stand, the view is one of the best. The second spot is right in Town Square by the Roy Disney and Minnie Mouse statue, again, facing down Main Street. There is a curb to sit on or if you choose to stand up on the curb, you can see over anyone who has made it there before you. Then again, some people prefer to be in the mix with all of the masses right in the "Hub" in front of Cinderella's Castle. That is never my first choice, but if you can stake out a spot, I must admit that it does offer some great views of both the parades and fireworks.
    Wherever you choose, I wish you a Magical vacation!! :)
