    Is there a fine dining restaurant that is along the parade route that we can have dinner and watch the parade?

    Hi Suzanne! The idea of relaxing and dining and watching the Magic Kingdom parades is magical. However, at this time there really is not a place where you can do all three at once. If there was I would imagine it would soon become the most sought after reservation on property.

    There are several restaurants located on or close to the parade route. Liberty Tree Tavern is in the Liberty Square area and has a few tables that are near a window where you might catch an occasional glimpse of the parade as it passes by. The Crystal PalaceTony's Town Square, and the Plaza restaurants are all located on the route but again will have very few tables close to a window for guests to view the parade. On top of that guests who are trying to watch the parade outside will likely block any view you might have had from your table.

    Your best bet is to find a spot early and hunker down for a while to get a front row seat to view the parades. Frontierland can be an area that fills up later then Main Street but don't wait too long. Holding spots for others will be difficult too. If you are watching the night time parade when they offer two times try to stay for the late one as that parade is very easy to find a good spot. Enjoy the wonderful Magic Kingdom parades!
