    We will be taking our first trip to WDW. (REALLY SOON) My daughter asked me about the parades. She wanted to know if they throw things like candy or other goodies to the crowds. I was unsure of what to tell her so she could know ahead of time. HELP??

    You must be so excited for your fast-approaching trip!  I hope I can help to clear some things up for your daughter.

    The parades at Walt Disney World don't feature candy throwing; they are more the smile and wave variety of parade.  Most children, though, (mine included) are so in awe of their favorite characters dancing and waving right in front of them that they don't miss the candy!  The only exception I'm aware of is Mickey's Boo to You parade that takes place during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  At the end of that parade, cast members from Goofy's Candy Co. do pass (not throw!) treats out to partygoers.  Have a great trip!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
