    What a great thing to be able to ask you questions. I thank you. I have tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Chistmas. Do you have a favorite spot to see the parade and fireworks?

    Hi Shan!

    Thank you for the compliment.  Every panelist enjoys helping guests plan their vacations.  Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is a lot of fun!  Be sure to bring your camera to capture the snow falling on Main Street USA as well as all of the other colorful events going on that night! 

    There will be two showings of the parade during the party.  A good place to watch the first parade is in Frontierland.  I like watching it from right in front of the Hall of Presidents.  However, if you are going to watch the second showing then I do suggest finding a spot on Main Street.  My favorite spot on Main Street is on the second floor of the Main Street Railroad Station.  It's a popular location, so get there early if you want to try that!

    I think the best place to watch Wishes is in the middle of Main Street, about 50 yards from Casey's (the hot dog place on Main Street) in the direction of Cinderella Castle.  The Cast Members may not let you into the street until just before the fireworks start.  It may not seem like it, but it's a great place.  Close, but not too close to the fireworks!

    Have a magical vacation!
