    We have a 2:30pm RSVP at Cinderella's Castle for lunch. The parade starts at 3pm. Any chance that we will be able to see some (or all) of the parade? If so, what is the best strategy for seeing as much as possible?

    Hi Jason,

    You will have a wonderful time eating in Cinderella's Castle.  I just recently ate there for lunch and could not choose a meal because they all looked yummy!

    Unfortunately, you will not see the parade as your dining experience will take about an hour and you would not want to rush this experience.  You will be visited by the Disney Princesses and the magic is memorable especially if you have any princesses yourself.

    One advantage to this time is that when you are finished, most people will still be on Main Street and the parade route so lines in Fantasyland will be slightly shorter.

    You could view the parade at night or visit the Magic Kingdom on another day to see the parade and ride your favorite attractions again.  Another thought is to call Disney Dining and see if they can adjust your Advance Dining Reservation. 

    Finally, if you have to go with the 2:30, some restaurants will let you check-in for your priority seating 30 minutes prior.  This still does not mean you can start your dining experience at 2:00 but it might be an option.

    Enjoy the castle!
