Park Hours are currently being released about 180 days (+10) out, so you'll be able to see the Park Hours quite a bit in advance of your vacation. This is very important in booking those cornerstone princess character meals. Make sure you're on the phone or booking online 180 days out from your check-in date (when staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel), so you can get those reservations knocked off your list! Be Our Guest is currently a huge favorite, so I'd make sure to reserve it first.
My favorite parade viewing spot at Magic Kingdom is in Frontierland. It's less crowded, and you can you usually stroll over there and get a pretty decent spot without a terribly long wait. Also keep in mind that lines for attractions are usually shorter during parades/fireworks, so if you're looking to enjoy a shorter wait, you can go during those times.
Have a magical vacation!
