Hi all, Im planning on watching the fireworks and then staying close ready to watch the second parade, can anyone recommend a good spot that will give good views to both or at least not far to move between them? Thanks

We went on the first night, had a really good view in front of the castle and then made a beeline for Main Street to grab a spot for the second parade. It seems more people got there before us as the kerbs were packed. You could easily stand a row back but it was busy. My suggestion if the parade is more of a priority would be to grab a spot in Main Street for the parade and watch the fireworks from there.

We normally sit on Main Street near to Starbucks, its really busy so get there early. Couple years ago we sat opposite Country bears jamboree which was a great spot as nowhere near as busy.

Would we be able to see the projections on the castle properly because they look really good😄

I think so, we watched the Tim Tracker and he seemed about that far away.

The second parade is much much quieter as most people with young children leave after the fireworks.

Last week we turned up for a spot on main street outside Starbucks 40 mins before it started and got to sit right in the curb so great interaction with characters!

Enjoy, it's fab!

At the party's people seem to camp a lot more than standard nights. It's not uncommon to see people camping at the best spots 3 hrs before.
