When you go to Magic Kingdom, be sure not to miss their afternoon A Dream Comes True Parade. The parades at Disney are full of music, dancing, and fun. This is a great opportunity to see characters that you might not otherwise see at any of the other Disney theme parks.
While the Magic Kingdom Parade usually starts at 3pm, you will find that people will begin looking for a seat as early as 2pm. Why so early? People know that a premium seat in the shade is very limited. When you have small kids, having them sit in the sun for an hour at the Magic Kingdom can be an event in itself! My personal favorite place to see ANY Disney parade is in Frontierland where they actually have some bench seating that is right along the parade route!
Keep in mind that while the Parade begins at 3pm, it will take a while for it to wind itself around to where you may be located. This means that you shouldn’t count on the parade being at your spot at any given time. Waiting for the parade to begin is a great time to enjoy a favorite Disney treat, cold drink or popcorn. You’ll find that there are vendors usually stations throughout the parade route so it shouldn’t be too hard to locate something yummy!
TIP: Scope out your parade spot early to be sure to get the best seat.
