    Which night is better to see Electric Parade? Sat night after 5pm Ohana reservation or Thurs after 4:40 pm 1900 Park Fare b-day celebration. Parade starts at 7pm. 2 young DDs, so want a good view of the parade. Should we skip Ohana?

    Hi Rachel,

    Tough decision. 'Ohana is closer to the Magic Kingdom. While the Grand Floridian is also on the monorail, it is a little further away. That being said, it has often taken us several hours to eat at 'Ohana. My family absolutely loves eating there and the entertainment is fun for the kids. They get to do coconut rolling races, limbo and do hula dancing lessons. 1900 Park Fare is a buffet so you can eat at your pace. Granted, you'll want to wait to see all of the characters, but you aren't waiting for a server to bring you your meal. Since the parade is important to you, I think I would aim to watch the parade Thursday after 1900 Park Fare. I'd arrive by 4:30 for dinner. If you get out of there by 6:00, you should be all set. However, if you end up not making it and you decide the parade is higher on your priority list than 'Ohana, then you can always cancel dinner for Saturday and watch the parade instead.

    Hope this helps and that you are able to see and do everything you want.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
