    Can you see the xmass parade from Tomorrowland Terrace? Was thinking of doing the Dessert party but not if we'll miss the parade...can't make it to the later parade. 1st parade, 8:15, dessert party 8:30pm on 11/8/13. Thanks.

    Hi, Dawn!

    Great question! The Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party is a fun dining event with loads of delectable desserts and a cozy comfortable viewing area for Wishes nighttime spectacular. Unfortunately, the view of Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade from the terrace is not a great one. You will only be able to see the very tops of the floats from that vantage point and will completely miss the characters and performers at street level.

    Since November 8th is the first date this year for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, I would personally recommend skipping the Dessert Party so as not to miss any of the special live entertainment at the Party (including the amazing parade). Be sure to scout out a spot to view Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade well in advance. The earlier parade begins at 8:15 PM and lasts about 20 minutes. I recommend securing a spot by 7:30 PM to get the best view. Many Guests will be waiting for the parade along both sides of Main Street USA and in the central Hub area in front of Cinderella Castle. These areas become extremely congested before, during and immediately following the parade. I recommend finding a nice spot in Frontierland or Liberty Square for the best experience! 

    I hope this helps with planning your Christmas Party time! Please stop by the Moms Panel again with any other questions you may have.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
