    Hello moms I am wondering if you know how famlies are chosen to be in a parade. Thanks

    Unfortunately, Alex, I can't pass along any surefire tips that will land you a coveted spot in one of Disney's parades.  The families who do the honors didn't stand in a hidden line or draw a special number; they simply were in the right place at the right time.  At least, that was my experience when my family and I were asked to participate years ago.  We were enjoying some goodies from the Main Street Bakery when a Cast Member approached us and said hello.  After a few minutes of easy conversation he asked if we'd be interested in participating.  We--of course--eagerly accepted and the rest is history.  Like I said, though, it was just a matter of us enjoying the moment in the right place at the right time.  With any luck, it will happen to you, too!  If not, though, not to worry; watching the parade is almost as magical as being in one.  Have a great time!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
