    Hi Moms! 37 days until my boyfriend and I head to WDW for our first holiday experience! We bought tix to MVMCP and were wondering what the best place to view the parade would be from? Do you have the parade route? Thanks and getting excited!

    Hi Mary!

         You have every right to be excited because the Holidays in Walt Disney World are truly amazing!  I love attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in the Magic Kingdom! In fact I have attended it four times since December 2008! I am going to give you my absolute favorite spot to watch Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas Parade. My favorite spot to watch this amazing Holiday parade is right in front of the Christmas Tree facing Cinderella Castle at the start of Main Street USA because you can see the parade coming straight at you with the picturesque Cinderella Castle in the background. I would recommend finding a spot to view this parade 30 to 45 minutes before it is scheduled to begin. Typically, there are two Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas Parades per evening and the second parade is less crowded so you can find a great spot with less waiting. I would recommend going to the second parade and if you really love this parade you can see it twice!  This parade typically starts in Frontierland and ends near the Car Barn and Harmony Barbershop on Main Street USA.

    I hope that you have a magical holiday season in Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
