    Trying to book FS+ for electrical parade on a night when it's earlier at 8pm. I've seen on other days that FS+ is standby only but the day I am looking it isn't there at all? What does this mean? It doesn't exist when it is earlier?

    Hey, Pamela!

    Thank you for all your wonderful questions and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Elaborate, glittering floats with singing princesses, dashing princes and Disney characters aplenty, including my favorite giant green dragon, Elliott, from the 1977 Disney classic, Pete’s Dragon, make the Main Street Electrical Parade a highlight of my trip.

    There are several dates when the Main Street Electrical Parade has an 8:00 p.m. or earlier showing. These dates include March 1,3,4,6 and 9. All other dates have later showings. When you are looking on the Main Street Electrical Parade webpage for the hours the parade will be performed, sometimes the page will not load the times. It's is a mystery as to why this happens but here are my suggestions. Usually when I refresh the page in my browser the times appear. If no times are available it usually means Disney Parks have not decided on the parade time or there will be no parade.

    Disney Dad Tip: Keep checking for FastPass+ reservations everyday for parades and other attractions. Many times Guests will change their mind and you may scoop up the one you want. FastPass+ reservations for parades put you up close to the actions but don't fret if you cannot secure one of these little beauties. There are plenty of great viewing around the parade trail. The best place to view the parade (without a FastPass+ reservations) is along the wooden walkway in Frontierland near the Frontier Trading Post or Country Bear Jamboree or just in front of The Hall of Presidents attraction in Liberty Square.

    I hope this helps answer your question. Please don't hesitate to stop back by.

    Pamela, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
