    What time is the last parade of the day at Magic Kingdom? What is the best time to make dinner reservations at the Magic Kingdom if you want to see the last parade?

    Hi Jamie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Planning for a Walt Disney World Resort can be so exciting but I also know that it may be a bit overwhelming especially if you are a first time visitor. Watching the Main Street Electrical Parade is on our “must do” list whenever we visit. This parade is filled with so many amazing lights, performers, and music it is not to be missed.

    Parade times vary day by day. Some days you will find that this parade is offered twice in one night and then other times it is only offered once. Times will vary based on Magic Kingdom Park operating hours and are subject to change without notice. I recommend that you figure out the day that you are planning on seeing this parade and look at the calendar or the My Disney Experience App for the times that it is offered. You then can plan your dining reservation around the parade time.

    When making DiningReservations I always allow approximately 60-90 minutes for a Table-Service meal. This way I do not feel rushed when dining. I generally like to make my dinner reservations around 5:30 P.M. With all of the walking around and the fun that you have I find that I am always hungry at Disney so I like to plan for an early dinner.

    I hope that I have helped to answer your question. Please feel free to stop back at any time with any other additional park planning questions that you may have!

    Have an Unforgettable time!
