    Where can I find the times of the evening parades and fireworks in Magic Kingdom? We will be there Spetember 9th through the 15th and just want to go ahead and plan it around our dinner reservations. Where is the best place to watch the parade and firework

    Hi Carmen,

    Wow!  Your September trip will be here before you know it.  You must be getting very excited.

    The times for the evening parades and fireworks during your upcoming stay are posted and readily available at  Just click on the "parks & tickets" tab at the top of the page.  Choose one of the theme parks.  When that new page appears, click on "calendar" at the lower left side of the page.  Change the month to September (over on the right, mid-page).  Click on the number for the day you plan to visit that park.  The daily schedule (including parade and fireworks times) will appear.  Repeat this process for each of the four main theme parks.

    There are great viewing locations for the parades in the Magic Kingdom all along Main Street U.S.A.  I'm particularly fond of the hub (directly in front of Cinderella Castle) as a parade and fireworks viewing location.  My favorite outside-the-park viewing spot for Wishes is the beach behind Disney's Polynesian Resort.  It is a blissfully crowd-free fireworks viewing location. 

    Let us know if you need any additional assistance as you pull together the plans for your trip.  We'd be happy to help!
