    Hello, we will be visiting both Disneyland and Disney California Adventures, we have an 11 year old daughter, which would be the top 3 parades to try to watch for the 4 days we will be there?

    Hi there, Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I know how excited you must be with your vacation just a few short days away. 

    The Disneyland Resort is known for fantastic entertainment options like firework shows, parades, and nighttime spectaculars. During your trip, there are plenty of these to experience which you can search for on the Daily Events Schedule before you even leave for your trip. This will allow you to plan ahead for your must-do activities.

    My very favorite parade at the Disneyland Resort is the stunning Paint the Night Parade in Disney California Adventure Park. This showcases millions of dazzling lights, familiar Characters, and such fun music. You and your daughter will be completely mesmerized by this amazing parade. We always try to see it more than once each trip. During the day, I recommend the Pixar Play Parade in Disneyland Park which features plenty of Pixar pals. My favorite float is one of the newest additions to this parade dedicated to the movie Up. Finally, if you plan on attending Mickey's Halloween Party during your visit, you must check out the Frightfully Fun Parade which is exclusive to this event. It's full of Happy Haunts and Disney Villains making it such a unique way to celebrate the Halloween season.

    I hope your Halloween Time vacation is to die for, but beware of hitchhiking ghosts!
