    We are headed to Disney World December 10 2012. We are attending the following parks on the following days. Dec. 10 Epcot (future world), Dec. 11 Animal Kingdom, Dec 12 Epcot (world showcase) and Dec 13, Magic Kingdom. What parades/fireworks are there?

    Hi Mary!

    This is a great question.

    There are daytime parades in Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and in the Magic Kingdom.  There is a nighttime parade in the Magic Kingdom.  There are nighttime spectaculars in three of the parks as well:
    • Wishes in the Magic Kingdom
    • Illuminations in Epcot
    • Fantasmic in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    All of the nighttime spectaculars are "must sees".  My personal favorite is Fantasmic, but I think most guests prefer Wishes or Illuminations.  If you want a big fireworks show, definitely see Wishes in the Magic Kingdom.

    Have a wonderful Disney vacation!
