    I am bring 2 ,two year olds and an 11 year old the last week in october. I want to see parades and fireworks what ares would you recommend for viewing. I just read about the halloween party do you think this might be a good option for the two year olds?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    I will answer the easy one first.  Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is my favorite hard ticketed event in the Magic Kingdom. Besides trick or treating, it offers a fabulous parade and special fireworks. However, it is relatively expensive and it doesn't start until 7pm. That is pretty late for a 2 year old in my opinion though your 11 year old would love it. If you think the 2 year old can stay up or just sleep in a stroller then definitely go!

    The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney's Hollywood Studios offers a nighttime spectacular at night. The best viewing location for the fireworks in the Magic Kingdom is on Main Street. However, a less crowded location is Frontierland. Epcot had plenty of viewing areas as Illuminations can be seen from all around World Showcase Lagoon. To see Fantasmic in the Studios, you need to head to the stadium about 45 minutes before showtime. 

    The Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and the Studios have a parade. The Magic Kingdom has a daytime and nighttime parade and the best viewing location is on Main Street. I don't think the location matters that much for the parade in the Animal Kingdom or the parade in the Studios. The parade route will be marked on the park maps. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
