    I noticed that now with the fastpass plus system that parades are fastpass? I am confused by this. Do you need fastpass to watch the parades now versus just finding a spot on Main Street?

    Hi Jeremy,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I know a new system can be confusing, but I think you will enjoy the convenience of the FastPass+ system once you get the hang of it! While there is a FastPass+ option for parades and fireworks at the Magic Kingdom, they are not necessary. You can still find a spot along the parade route and enjoy the sights and music. There are many places to catch a glimpse of Wishes nighttime spectacular. 

    The benefit of FastPass+ for parades and fireworks is having a prime viewing location reserved in advance. I think the people who are used to camping out for a good parade spot will love being able to reserve one of the best spots. 

    Speaking of parades, there is a new daytime parade at the Magic Kingdom, the Festival of Fantasy parade. The Disney Parks Blog has a peek at this amazing new parade. I hope you have a chance to see the incredible new floats!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
