    I was hoping to reserve seating for the parade at Disneyland on Monday, October 16 for my daughters 4th birthday/first visit to Disneyland. Will info be available soon? Or how do I reserve 3 prime viewing seats?

    Hi Stefanie! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by to send your question our way. I'm happy to help!

    Celebrating Birthdays at the Disneyland Resort is extra magical! I love a good parade too, and the "Magic Happens" Parade has become one of my favorites. I did some research for the "Magic Happens" Parade Dining Package at Plaza Inn. Unfortunately, this dining package is not scheduled to be offered beyond August 27th. It doesn't appear that there will be a different dining package available that offers reserved seating for this parade. I'm sorry. I know this isn't the news you were hoping for, but don't let this dampen your spirits. It can still be a fun day for your family!

    I recommend grabbing a spot early on Main Street, U.S.A. for the parade. You could also consider making an Advanced Dining Reservation at Carnation Cafe just before the start of the parade. You could request a table outside so you can enjoy the sights and sounds as Mickey and his pals "float" by. I really like doing this to take a break and have a great meal while enjoying some entertainment. 

    Be sure to pick up complimentary Birthday and First Visit celebration buttons. You can find these at City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, or at Guest Services in Disney California Adventure Park.  I also suggest having your daughter's picture taken with her favorite characters to commemorate the special day. You can find characters by using the filter feature in the Disneyland Mobile App

    I'm wishing you a very special day filled with magical memories! If you have more planning questions before you arrive, please stop by planDisney again. We would love to help!

    Happy Planning!
