    my husband has only been once to D. World as a teenager and didn't get to see or do much. I want him to have the full disney experience. Can you tell me where are the best places to see parades, wishes etc even if we have to pay extra for private viewing

    You and your husband are going to have a great time at Walt Disney World. This time you can experience all the magic and wonder together. The best place to watch any of the parades at the Magic Kingdom is on Main Street U.S.A. This is where they start, so get there early and grab a comfy spot. As for Wishes, the best place for me is to watch it after a lovely dinner at the California Grill atop Disney's Contemporary Resort. It's fun, romantic and the food at the California Grill is fantastic. The view for the fireworks is the best and they play the music in speakers on the balcony. I think this is an experience that you will both find special. I like it better then having to pay for a private viewing area. You both need to explore all of the parks. I think he will especially enjoy the World Showcase Pavilion at Epcot. Wandering through all of those diverse countries including Italy, England and China is a great way to spend the day. Each of the 11 countries is worth a visit. My wife and I enjoyed an adult beverage in each country which was lots of fun. You really will enjoy the chips, guacamole and a mojito from Cava de Tequila in the Mexico Pavilion. I hope this provides you with some great ideas for your vacation. I have plenty more so feel free to ask me for more tips. I will see you at the parks.
