    We are travelling with and 8, 6, 5, and 3 year old. Where do you recommend the best place to watch the Magic Kingdom parade and fireworks and how early do we need to secure our spot?

    Hello, Heather!

    I highly recommend viewing the parade and fireworks right in front of Cinderella's Castle.  This is simply the best spot in my opinion.  Unfortunately, this is a favorite spot for many of our guests and you will need to arrive early to save some great seats.  I have seen people grabbing spots as early as two hours prior to show time.  With that being said, I would highly recommend you doing the same.  I know it will seem like two hours going to waste, but you will not regret the views once the parade and fireworks start.  This is a good time for your little ones to take a nap or you can grab some dinner to chow down on as you wait.  As long as my kids have food in their hands, two hours goes by quickly.  Also, the Cast Members will keep the kids busy with activities such as jump rope, hula-hoops, and much more fun and games.  While the kids are playing, your feet can take a much needed rest.  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day!~
