I think the best place to watch a Magic Kingdom parade is in Frontierland.
There’s no shortage of places to meet Mickey at WDW.
Over the previous summer, we took a WDW trip that was way more crowded than I had anticipated. The frustration that came along with this miscalculation meant I was much less likely to break out the camera and take family photos over the course of the trip.
Something that kind of caught me off-guard, even as a long-time WDW visitor, is the idea that you can’t purchase a park ticket if the park availability calendar shows all four parks at capacity (greyed out) for the day you’re planning to visit.
