    Hi! We are 8 in total, we will have a stroller and ECV/ skooter.(can get out short distance) My question is for Magic Kingdom parades and fireworks will we be able to watch all together? do they need to watch in designated area? Or park the “wheels” in lot

    Why hello again Aimee, and welcome back to planDisney!

    It looks like you've got a lot planned for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit, especially if you've got a big group heading around for your day at Magic Kingdom Park this April! When my family flew down from Canada to meet us here in Orlando for my Disney Wedding this past January, our young niece and nephews not only had strollers with them but my father also had to use a wheelchair when they entered a theme park to watch fireworks at the end of the night, so I'm happy to share my personal experience as well as some helpful tips:

    • When it comes to finding a great location to view the Fireworks and Nighttime Entertainment in Magic Kingdom Park, I've found that the key is to stake out a spot as early as possible - especially since the designated viewing area for guests with mobility aids can start to fill up rather quickly. I've observed guests and their families forming a line over an hour prior to Happily Ever After in the Plaza Gardens area in front of Casey's Corner, with Cast Members providing access via an opening closer to Adventureland and The Crystal Palace. From my personal experience, the Cast Members do often limit the number of additional party members who can enter so that's something to be prepared for! (You don't necessarily have to watch from this area either, but it does reduce the chances of having your view blocked by folks who choose to stand in front of you or place their children on their shoulders.)
    • For the parades or cavalcades however, there are a lot of locations for you all to watch from together and I recommend being early when they place down the tape along the route to snag a front-row spot. I personally recommend watching the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade from Frontierland since there are several spots with handy ramps in this area for an easier experience getting out afterward, especially some nice shaded spots in front of Country Bear Jamboree!
    I also recommend getting in touch with the Cast Members tasked with addressing accessibility and mobility needs ahead of your visit, as well as asking the friendly Guest Relations team early for any tips, updates or advice that they may be able to provide to help make the experience easier for all of you when you enter the theme park. Come back again to planDisney soon for any other tips or advice ahead of your April adventuring!

    May your journey from Canada be splendid this Spring!
