    How does Fastpass+ work for fireworks or a parade? Is there a special area where Fastpass people stand? I don't really understand how something without a line can be a Fastpass opportunity. Thanks so much for your help!!

    Hi, Heather! I really enjoyed using one of our FastPass+ selections for the Festival of Fantasy parade at the Magic Kingdom theme park when I saw this amazing parade for the first time in October. It is now one of my all-time favorites!  We watched it from the FastPass+ viewing area, and it was perfect! All of our photos have Cinderella Castle as the backdrop. While the location is prime, the biggest perk, in my opinion, is not having to claim your spot for the parade so far in advance.  We arrived about ten minutes before parade time, and there was plenty of space (with elbow room) for the whole family. To utilize the FastPass+ for the parade or fireworks, you will just scan your MagicBand at the entrance to the designated area like any other attraction.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
