    We are going to the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas November 29th. Where is the best place to watch the parade? Also, do you know what time the parade starts at?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    The parade times for the 2009 Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party haven't been released yet but as a guide the Once Upon A Christmastime Parade  was shown at 8.15pm and 10.30pm at last years party. The first party this year is on November 10th, if after this date you go to a website such as or they will have a copy of the map posted which will list all the parade times.

    You will be able to see the parade route marked in red on the map, really anywhere along the route will give you a great view but I like to sit looking at the Castle. This allows for great photos with the Castle in the background. Another favourite, if there is not a private party there, is on the upper platform of the Main Street Station, grab a spot right by the railings for a great view. Lastly I like a spot in Liberty Square, between Liberty Tree Tavern and the Country Bear Jamboree you'll see some wooden planters. These are right on the parade route and allow you to sit down whilst you watch.

    If possible I would recommend you view the second parade as it's normally quieter!

    Have a great party,
