    I have reservations for the crystal palace at 2:50 but I don’t want to miss the parade! Can I watch the parade from the where it takes off and still make it to my reservation?

    Hi Raphael!

    I'm glad to hear that you are planning on enjoying both The Crystal Palace and the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade as these are two of my favorite things at Magic Kingdom! The Crystal Palace has really tasty food options and my family always has a great time enjoying an awesome meal while we meet Winnie the Pooh and friends. Plus, the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is definitely a "must-do" during your Magic Kingdom day so you can see some of your favorite Characters make their way through the theme park!

    While times are always subject to change, generally the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade begins at 2:00 p.m. You should have plenty of time to see the parade and enjoy your 2:50 p.m. reservation at The Crystal Palace and a viewing location in Frontierland is perfect for your itinerary! The parade kicks off in Frontierland, near Splash Mountain, so I recommend that you find a viewing location near Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, which will allow you to watch the parade right when it starts. When the parade finishes, you can head through Adventureland to Main Street, U.S.A. and The Crystal Palace. You should have plenty of time to watch the parade and still enjoy your tasty meal!

    I recommend that you get settled into your spot to see the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade 30 to 45 minutes in advance to ensure that you have the perfect view! Let us know if you have any additional questions as your vacation approaches. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
