    Where is a good spot to watch the fireworks and parade in MK? Looking for a place that's not too crowded. I know probably impossible but just thought I would ask lol. Also is there a place to meet the princesses other then the restaurant in Epcot?

    Hi, Jennifer!

    This is a great question, and, to be honest, the answers will vary with each person you ask, based on several factors.

    For us, the perfect location is either right in front of the Main Street, U.S.A. train station, ground level, or up on the train station platform, second floor, facing Cinderella Castle. Try to position yourself in the center, as this will provide the best angle from which to view the fireworks. Arrive early so that if you're upstairs, you'll be able to stand or sit right up against the iron railing, providing the best view. At street level, we like to sit on the curb. One huge benefit of these locations is that if you wish to leave the park immediately following the finale of Wishes (even if on a night that offers Extra Magic Hours),) you'll be among those Guests who are closest to the exit and transportation. Main Street U.S.A. becomes very crowded at that point, so being the first to the buses or trams will put you well ahead of the crowds at that time.

    If that doesn't appeal to you, the back end of the park is also less crowded. Take a look at the parade route, which turns left at Cinderella Castle, and position yourself accordingly. If you are the type who doesn't mind lingering as the crowds exit ahead of you, then a spot toward the end of the route, as long as you can still see the peaks of the castle, will be good, too.
