This tip is taken from a coworker of mine.
As I've never actually sat and watched a full parade at the Disney Parks, I'm sharing some advice from a coworker and seasoned Disney veteran.
If you're planning to go to the parades, get there EARLY! I've always seen people set up shop and thought "Awesome - time to get on Space Mountain," but this time will be different. This trip, we're going to try to WATCH a parade!
Here's the game plan: Have at least one person set up shop. Get comfortable and up close. If you're not close up with little ones, they'll have a hard time seeing and could easily lose interest.
One person can set up shop - take a bag and sit down and get comfortable.
Then, the other parent can keep the little ones entertained - grab food, ride a quick ride, wonder a store. If you have kids like mine, sitting and doing nothing is NOT an option.
We're excited to show Noah his first parade on our trip (in under 2 weeks!). Hopefully these tips will help us and can help you, too!
Do you have any tips for getting a good parade viewing spot?
Thanks for stopping by!
