Trying to find a spot to watch one of the many parades in Magic Kingdom can be a stressful experience if you don't know where to go. We have compiled a list of some great places to catch the fireworks!
Main Street Main Street is by far the most popular place to catch one of the parades -- and it gets busy! Some people stake their claim on a spot 2 hours before the parade starts.
If you are watching a parade to end your day in Magic Kingdom, then try and get a spot close to the entrance. You won't be fighting as many crowds to get out, and you'll be closer to the front of the line for the monorail or ferry!
Tony's Town Square Porch The porch dining at Tony's Town Square is a great place to watch the parades. Not only is it a great view, you will also be seated in a chair instead of standing or sitting on the curb.
These reservations are tough to get, though. We suggest booking a reservation for 1 hour before parade time, then telling the cast member at the podium that you're willing to wait for a seat on the porch.
Frontierland and Liberty Square Unlike on Main Street, the good parade viewing spots in Frontierland and Liberty Square don't usually fill up until about 15-20 minutes before the parade actually starts.
If you're lucky, you might be able to snag a rocking chair!
The Main Street Train Station The second level of the Main Street Station is a great place to watch a parade. There are even some chairs available if you get there early enough! The entrance is in the tunnel that brings you into and out of the Magic Kingdom, in the center of the tunnel look for the stairs that bring you up to the railway platform.
Note that Disney does not dim the lights up here during evening parades, so this spot is definitely better for daytime events.
