    Hello Panel. Me, my friend and our DD's age 10 have tickets for the very 1st MVMCP on 11/9. We want to watch the parade on Main St where it's snowing. Where is the best place to park ourselves to get a great view and how early should we find a seat. Thanks

    Hi Stephanie!!!

    I love Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!!!  It is such a fun and festive way to celebrate the Christmas Season at the Magic Kingdom!!!

    There are two parade times each evening of the party.  If you can manage to hang around for the late parade, you will find it to be a much easier time to snag a seat with less wait time.  Anywhere in front of the shops on Main Street, USA is a wonderful place to sit and watch Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.  If you are watching the first parade (usually around 8:15pm,) I would recommend trying to get a seat no later than an hour or 45 minutes before the parade starts.  This will give you the best chance for an up close/front row seat for the parade.  For the later parade (usually 10:30pm,) you can usually manage to get a good seat about 30 minutes ahead of time.

    Just a little additional tip....don't taste the snow!!!  You will thank me for that later!!!

    Have a magical trip!!
