    Hi. We have a dinner reservation at Crystal Palace at 3:20PM. Will we have enough time to see the Festival of Fantasy parade before our reservation? If so, what would be the best place to view it from? Thanks!

    Hello Kimberly! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question!

    Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is absolutely stunning, and I can definitely understand why you don’t want to miss it. This celebration of the timeless tales of Fantasyland will definitely capture your heart.

    The parades lasts approximately 12 minutes, but since you have a 3:20 p.m. reservation at The Crystal Palace, I recommend saving a viewing spot early right outside Country Bear Jamboree, because you need to be close to the area where the parade starts. You will be able to enjoy the parade right after it starts and then make your way to the restaurant by crossing the path that connects Frontierland to Adventureland and making a right as soon as you are in front of The Magic Carpets of Aladdin. Walk straight ahead until you exit Adventureland and the restaurant will be located to your right. Remember that you have a tolerance of 15 minutes past your reservation time to arrive, so this should give you enough time to make your way from Frontierland to The Crystal Palace – you will have to be fast, so save restroom breaks for when you arrive at the restaurant.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Kimberly! Thank you for visiting us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Best magical wishes,
