    I am planning lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table at 1:15. Will I be able to watch Festival of Fantasy Parade that begins at 3:00? What would be the best location to see the parade upon leaving the castle?

    Hello Marianne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Fairytale Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table is an Endlessly Magical Experience. I remember hearing the fireworks from a performance of Mickey's Royal Friendship Fare and seeing Mickey and Minnie Mouse pass by on a float as we exited Cinderella Castle as part of Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade.

    If you have Advanced Dining Reservations for 1:15pm at Cinderella's Royal Table, that should provide you ample time to enjoy your dining experience and exit in time for Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade. The closest viewing area for you immediately upon exiting the restaurant would be a pathway back to the hub area in front of Cinderella Castle or across the bridge in Liberty Square.

    If you can find a comfortable location to view Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade that is not already too bust with waiting Guests, these are 2 fantastic locations to view the experience. In my opinion, the area surrounding the Liberty Bell in Liberty Square is one of the best vacations to view any of the parades at Magic Kingdom.

    The Liberty Square location provides the added benefit of potentially seeing the delightful The Muppets Present...Great Moments in American History while you wait.

    Enjoy the Parade!
