    Thanks so much for your previous help regarding MK parade route Allison! What's your favorite spots for viewing the parades & Wishes firework? Its our first visit with 2&4 yr old and want to make it a relax & fun experience for all! Appreciate

    Welcome Back Jenny!

    My favorite spot that offers a great viewing location for both the parade and fireworks is near the end of Main Street (either side) just as it turns at the hub in front of Cinderella Castle. There are restrooms near by in case my kids need to go during the wait. We can also grab a snack and make new friends while we wait. This location will also give you a nice view of Celebrate the Magic! which is shown on Cinderella Castle 15 minutes prior to Wishes (check your Times Guide for performance times).

    If we leave the Magic Kingdom during the day and come back in the evening, I usually throw a beach towel in my backpack to sit on. Since you have small kids, bring something to keep them entertained (phones & bubbles work great). Buy the glow in the dark necklaces before your trip and bring them out then.

    There will be a mad dash to exit the park after Wishes. Hang back and let the crowd get ahead of you.  You can do some shopping or just enjoy the park a little longer. Its great just to stroll down Main Street and enjoy the lights.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
