    How will we know when we arrive at the Magic Kingdom which location that the Electrical parade or any other parade will begin from?

    Hi Lisa,

    I love the parades at Magic Kingdom and love that you are planning ahead.  Positioning yourself in the right spot is key if you want to see the parade and get to a dining reservation, exit the park after the parade or save yourself some wait time by being near the start of the parade route. 

    The parades at Magic Kingdom can start at either of the parade route and can vary from day to day and parade.  The parade route begins (or ends) in Frontierland near Splash Mountain and travel towards Liberty Square.  It turns right at The Hall of Presidents.  When it reaches the hub in front of Cinderella Castle it goes to the left side of the hub. From there it heads down Main Street taking another left so that it goes around Town Square and ends near the Harmony Barbershop. Or it can begin near the Harmony Barbershop and make its way along the same route and end in Frontierland.

    To find out from which location a parade will begin, stop by Guest Relations and ask. Keep in mind that parades on the same day may start on different ends of the parade route so if you're interested in a particular one, make sure you specify the parade when you are inquiring.  You can also ask a Cast Member along Main Street when you enter.  Near parade times, you'll see Cast Members dressed in black slacks, black vests and white shirts appear along the parade route. These Cast Members are there to assist with making sure the parade route is clear and keep foot traffic moving in a safe manor during the parade. Either of these Cast Members should be able to assist you as well.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
