    11 days! Can't seem to get FP for FF parade at MK. My son is impatient at 21 mo old. Is there a viewing spot we can show up to last minute and still have a good view of the parade as it goes by or do I have to stake out a spot so my little one can see? TKU

    Hi Laurie!

    I'm so excited to hear that your vacation is coming up soon!  I'd keep checking for FastPass+ availability for parade viewing, as they can pop up at any time, and especially as your vacation nears....also...make sure that you check the availability using the website and the app.  Some have noticed differences in offerings between the two.

    I'd also check day of for don't give up hope!

    As far as a back up plan, we always view parades from Frontierland.  Near Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe. Usually, the crowd there holds off quite a bit when compared to Main Street, U.S.A. and the Castle Hub area.

    When traveling with little ones, we always take our 'bag of tricks':  small bubble containers and wands, color wonder books and markers, snacks, as well as small books.  These are great things to have with you if you're expecting a wait.  

    Have a magical vacation!
