    Hi, looking for a good spot to watch MSEP & Wishes (hopefully Tink fly as well) w/o having to move. First time visitors (Me,DH &3DDs 8,6&3). So excited to see MSEP again. Haven't seen since I was a kid at DL. Fav parade of all time. Can you giv

    Hi Victoria,

    I'm so exicted for your 1st trip to WDW. Be sure you get "1st Visits" buttons for each of you. I 100 % agree with you! MSEP is my favorite all time parade ever! Just wait until you see it with the new LED lights, 3 new floats & the pixie dust lighting effects - INCREDIBLE - especially since you'll be seeing it with your kids for their 1st time. 

    I prefer to stake out a spot that offers a great viewing location for both the parade & fireworks. My favorite spot is near the end of Main Street USA (either side) just as it turns at the hub in front of Cinderella Castle. One reason I like these spots is that there are restrooms nearby in case my kids need to go during the wait. We can also grab a snack & make new friends while we wait for the parade & fireworks.

    If I can't get a spot at the end of Main Street near the hub, I would suggest any place in the hub along the right side if you're facing Cinderella Castle. There are great views of the fireworks throughout the MK, but if you want to see Tinker Bell fly (goodness knows I do!), on the Main Street side of the castle is where you should find a spot.

    The parades at MK can start at either end of the parade route & can vary from day to day & parade. The parade route begins (or ends) in Frontierland near Splash Mountain & 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 & ends near the Harmony Barbershop. Or it can begin near the HBBS & make its way along the same route & end in Frontierland.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
