    What does using a fastpass+ for Illuminations at Epcot get you? Can fastpasses be used for MK parade?

    Hey, Crystal!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited for your November trip to the place "where dreams come true." You will have a lovely time with the cool weather and the fall decorations.

    A FastPass+ reservation for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth gives you prime viewing of this magnificent tribute to our planet without you having to hold a spot an hour before the show. The location is at the junction of the World Showcase Lagoon and Future World between two Tower Gift Shops. There are plenty of fantastic locations to catch the magic, color and music of the show without a FastPass+ reservation.

    As of now, there is only one parade at Magic Kingdom Park that offers FastPass+ reservations, Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. With your FastPass+ entitlement you will see the parade from the flag pole in Town Square. Because the parade step off begins at 3:00 p.m. in Frontierland it will be at the FastPass+ location around 3:20 p.m.

    Disney Dad Tip: Because there are many great areas along the Magic Kingdom Park parade route and around the World Showcase at Epcot I usually save FastPass+ reservations for attractions.

    I hope this information helps you plan the best Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Crystal, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
