    With the 100th guided tour, it states you get reserved viewing for the parade. Do we get to choose if we want to see the 3:30 or 6:30 parade?

    Hiya, Luana, and welcome to planDisney! I have to admit I clapped with joy when I saw you're considering booking the Celebrating Disney100 at Disneyland Resort Guided Tour. I've done a similar tour at Walt Disney World Resort, and it was life-changing. You're going to have a magical time! Let's see what details we can discover about your options for seeing the "Magic Happens" Parade as part of this tour.

    I spoke to a friendly Cast Member who said guests registered for the tour can access a roped-off viewing area for the 3:30 "Magic Happens" Parade only. Be sure you have a valid Theme Park Ticket and Reservation for Disneyland Park on the day of your tour, and remember to check the Disneyland website for parade times during your visit.

    If you prefer to watch this parade at 6:30, you have a few options. I'd recommend finding a viewing spot an hour or so ahead of time, and the area around "it's a small world" is one of my favorite places to watch parades. 

    You could also book a Plaza Inn Dining Package, where you'll receive a voucher to watch the parade at 6:30, but these packages book light lightning. I recommend being online early on the morning when your 60-day booking window opens. Although menu items are subject to change, I enjoy this restaurant's plant-based Penne with Marinara.

    Luana, I'm sending pixie dust and ticker tape so you can enjoy the guided tour and the parade on your next visit to Disneyland Resort. Please feel free to stop by planDisney anytime. I'll be holding my tour guide umbrella high for you!

    Magic awaits,
