    Hi again Panel! Can anyone tell me where the preferred viewing areas are for Illuminations, Wishes and MK parades? Would you recommend using a FP+ allotment for any of these or save for the rides? I have 2 little ones. Thx - you guys are all so helpful!

    Hi Alyssa,

    FastPass+ is a great way to reserve a spot at an attraction, show or parade and not have to wait in line. Disney does all the waiting for you while you dine, shop or enjoy another attraction, show or parade.

    While I can not find the exact location of the preferred viewing spots for Illuminations, Wishes and Magic Kingdom parades, Disney would definitely pick a great spot if you are using a FastPass+. There are so many great locations that I would not use a FastPass+ on these experiences. When my children were little, we would find a spot a few minutes before the parade or fireworks and enjoy them. One of the best Wishes moments was riding Dumbo. It truly was like the commercials!

    My family saves our FastPass+ for attractions which are tough to get such as Soarin' or Toy Story Midway Mania!. We book them later in the day when the lines are long and we are tired. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
