    Hello Panel!! Wondering what the benefit of using fastpass+ for parades is. Is it a better viewing area? We have been selected for the new bands and arrive in 16 days :) :) Trying to figure out what options are best to use the fastpass selections on.

    Hi, Will!  The viewing areas are basically roped off sections that are accessible only to those guests who have selected the option via FastPass+.  It mostly saves you from having to snag a spot early on and sit and wait.  The viewing is very good from these areas, and the number of FastPasses available is limited, so it's a good choice.

    My family, when it was offered as an option for us, chose other attractions.  It's way more important to my kids that they do as many rides as they can, and having FastPasses for those is a much bigger deal.  We're not too picky about where we stand for the parade!

    Have a great time on your upcoming visit!
