    Are fastpass+ for the parades and fireworks worth it? Are the designated spots the best spots to watch Wishes, Festival of Fantasy etc. If not, where are?

    Hi Kelly! Thanks for your question.
    FastPass+ is absolutely an amazing tool for saving time while at Disney Theme Parks.  I usually prefer saving my FastPass+ choices for attractions that are popular and busy, such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Splash Mountain, for example. For parades and fireworks, I agree they designate very special viewing areas, but I particularly don’t think it is necessary. There are many great places for viewing them. For instance, if you are planning to watch Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, you can have a great view of it from anywhere on Main Street U.S.A. For Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, I would go to Frontierland, where it tends to be less crowded, and you can find a good spot if you arrive there around 20 minutes before parade starts. 
    Come back again if have further questions. 
    Have a wonderful day!
