    What time do you need to get to the park in order to get a good spot for the Opening parade? Where is the best spot to view for little ones? And how much is parking?

    Hi there, Jamie!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel!

    I've been fortunate enough to see opening shows at some of the Theme Parks at Walt Disney World over the years and they really are a treat! My very favorite is the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show. The show starts at 8:45 a.m. in the morning and takes place at the Main Street Train Station. I recommend arriving between 8:35-8:40. You'll have a great view anywhere you stand right after you've entered the Park because the show takes place high up so everyone can see.

    There are fees to park at each of the 4 major Theme Parks. You can find the most current rates on the Parking Fees section of the Walt Disney World website.

    I sure hope this helps, Jamie. Please let us know if we can help with any other questions you have.

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
