    Where do I learn about all the shows the day I’m visiting? Or where is the best place to watch the parade? I was trying to find what time that starts-? Also, is there a land or area where all the princesses are? Where do we go for autographs? Disneyland CA

    Hi Danielle! Welcome back to planDisney! Thanks so much for sending us more great questions.

    How exciting that you're planning a vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth! You can find the Entertainment Offerings by selecting the dates you will visit on the Daily Events Schedule. The "Magic Happens" Parade is scheduled for 3:30 and 6:30 at Disneyland Park on your arrival date. These times are generally when the parade is scheduled, although entertainment is subject to change or cancellation. In my experience, any changes or cancellations are due to weather. My favorite spot to watch the parade is on Main Street, U.S.A. I recommend grabbing a spot at least an hour before the parade starts. If you're watching the first parade, it does take a few minutes to arrive from its starting point by "it's a small world." If you watch the later parade, it begins near the entrance of Main Street, U.S.A., and heads towards the castle. 

    Be sure to have your camera ready, because many princesses will be dancing and waving during the parade! If you want to see your favorite royalty and get their autographs, the best spot to do this is to Meet Disney Princesses at Royal Hall. If you plan to visit Disney California Adventure Park, you could go to Anna & Elsa's Royal Welcome for more princess fun! There are many other Character Experiences where you can get autographs and take photos too! 

    I suggest downloading the Disneyland Mobile App before you arrive. This is a great way to check the entertainment schedule and find characters while you are on the go at the Disneyland Resort. You will also have quick access to your Theme Park Tickets, dining options, and attraction wait times.

    I hope you have a magical vacation filled with royal fun, warm hugs, and many special memories. Please visit us again at planDisney when you're ready to plan another visit. You've got a friend in us, and we would love to help! 

    See ya real soon!
