    Hi moms There are so many shows, parades, dance parties and fireworks at MK, it's hard to fit it all in with rides and character greetings too. Which ones are not to be missed?

    Hi Hilary,

    Thanks for coming back to the Moms Panel.   I completely agree that there is so much fun to experience at the Magic Kingdom which makes it difficult to choose.  There's only so much time in the day and you want to make the most of it.  No one does parades like Disney so you don't want to miss the Festival of Fantasy parade which takes place at 3:00 pm every day.  With characters, princesses, villains and everyone's favorite, Mickey & Minnie, you'll want to be curbside to see it all.  

    My most favorite way to end the night at the Magic Kingdom is with Celebrate the Magic and Wishes nighttime spectacular. Both shows are guaranteed to surprise and delight your family.  If you're the sentimental sort like I am, Wishes may bring a tear to your eye.  The show is all about the power of believing, no matter what your greatest wish is.  If you believe, it will happen.  I would recommend getting a Fast Pass+ for Wishes for preferred viewing, but if you can't get one, don't worry.  There are lots of excellent viewing areas around the entire Magic Kingdom Park.  

    My next trip is still months away, but I'm excited that yours is only a few weeks away.  Have a magical vacation!
