    Where is the best spot to watch the parade from in Magic Kingdom?

    Hello Cathy,

    Are you ready to explore all the fun and excitement of Magic Kingdom? I am sure you are. I'll be you are counting down the days. I know I would be.

    I absolutely love the Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom. The floats are absolutely breathtaking and have some of the neatest effects I have ever seen in a parade. While many people may have differing opinions, my favorite spot to view this parade is from Liberty Square. I try to scope out a good seat just to the left of the entrance to the Hall of Presidents. Once of the reasons I love this spot best, is that it is typically a ideal spot to see Maleficent, as the dragon, breathe fire. As an alternative, you can't go wrong viewing the parade on Main Street, USA or in front of Cinderella Castle. However, it has been my experience that since these are more popular viewing spots, you would have to get your spot even earlier than some of the other areas. For Liberty Square, I tend to find my viewing spot about 40-45 minutes prior to the parade start time.

    I hope this helps! Enjoy.
