    I was wondering how you get to be in any of the parades at the parks? We'd love to be a part of this amazing experience but don't know how to go about achieving this. Thanks so much for all of your help! Your advice has been a life saver. Happy Holidays!

    Hi, Danielle! Happy holidays to you, too! So glad that I have been able to answer your questions for you so far, but I have a bit of unwelcome information this time.  While it is possible to be in the opening ceremonies and parades, it's not possible is to plan being in them.   My family and I were lucky enough to be asked to be in Mickey's Jammin' Jungle parade last October.  We rode in Mickey's vehicle and were so excited to see everyone's faces light up as Mickey went by them.  It happened because we were in the right place at the right time (my kids were pin trading with the Cast Member that picked us) with the right number of people.  It's random.  There's no sign-up, waiting list, or Cast Member to contact.  It's just a big dose of pixie dust for the lucky ones that are chosen!  Have a Magical vacation!
