    Hi, My family's first time to WDW. I have a 7 and 5 yr old. I would love to take them to the parades, but I can't find the times or routes anywhere. Could you please tell me the times of the parades between May 19 and May 24th for all 4 parks? thx

    Hi, Amy! To find the times for entertainment such as parades, stage shows and fireworks for each of the four theme parks, simply follow my lead on the WDW site:

    1. From the home page, scroll over Parks at the top of the page. When the drop-down menu appears, click on one of the parks.
    2. On the left side of the park's home page, select Calendar. The current month should pop up, and you can either look there or click on the month in which you'll be visiting under View Month and then, Go.
    3. When you click on the individual day that you'll be at that park, an entertainment schedule appears which details an hour-by-hour plan of scheduled entertainment for that day such as some stage shows and characters, parades and fireworks. (Of course, all entertainment including characters are subject to change without notice.) You can even scroll through the days before or after your selected date or go back to the Month View.

    I've included a hyperlink here for Wednesday, May 19 at the Magic Kingdom just to get you started. This calendar is an essential tool for me when planning my family's vacation. I hope that it will help you as well.

    As a helpful hint, if you go to My Disney Vacation on the home page and create Customized Maps, you can see the parade routes on your final maps before you print, and if you have time before your trip, you can have your maps sent to your home. (Just be sure to sketch in the parade routes from your screen...for some reason, the routes don't print on the final version.) Have a wonderful day and a most magical vacation!
