    I will be at the Magic Kingdom on Feb 16th, which is one of the days for Disney after Hours. Do I have to purchase an after hour tickets to be in the park during the firework show at 8pm?

    Hi Lori!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. According to the schedule for Parades at Walt Disney World on February 16th, there is only one--Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade at 3:00 PM. It is an exciting mix of all things Disney and I know you will love it! You might want to consider a Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package which allows you a VIP viewing area for the Parade after enjoying a wonderful meal at Tony's Town Square Restaurant. I have heard wonderful things about Tiana's Riverboat Party, as well--a fun ice cream party with Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen and a bird's eye view of the Parade from the decks of the Liberty Square Riverboat. No matter where you choose to view it, the Parade will be the highlight of your day. I'm sure of it!

    One more thing--my family absolutely loves Disney After Hours and I would highly recommend it. It is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the Park when crowds are low and excitement is high. It's great!

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help you with your planning as you prepare for your Walt Disney World visit.

    Have a magical day!
