  • Has anyone been able to obtain Fast Passes for Festival of Fantasy parade?

    Just curious. I don't see them as an option in FastPass+ selection for an upcoming trip.

    Yes, my son and I got them for last Tuesday. The viewing location is not ideal. It's the central plaza area right in front of the castle, so you're watching the parade as it comes around the curve. However, my son is only 3 and doesn't have the patience (or bladder control!) to wait 1-2 hours for a good spot. I saw people waiting 2 hours ahead along Main Street. So, it was the best option for us. We got there at 2:45pm and secured a spot to sit right at the rope line. If I didn't have a small child, I would recommend trying to secure a better viewing area if you have the time/patience.

    Form what I've observed, even people that have the parade fast pass still need to get there very early. If you don't, you still won't get the best angle in the fast pass area, nor will you get a front row seat.

    People were in the night time parade's fast pass area 1 and 1/2 hours before the start time a few weeks ago.

    So unless you want to stand right in front of the castle, - where you'll be too close to see the fireworks anyway now - there is no need to get the parade fast pass.

    I agree. Avoid a wait on a popular ride. You can spend much less time than you would in that stand by line for Splash or Space, to find one of many open spots along the parade route.

    I was just able to log in and make the selection for tomorrow. How far out is your trip?

    I played with more dates and it shows up through the end of March. For some reason, parades and fireworks don't show up at the 60 day mark. They release an entire month at one point. For me, Feb opened the last week of Jan. I'm not sure at what point March was released.

    If you want a decent spot you could easily spend an hour or two waiting. I found a FP+ for MESP was very worthwhile. To each his own

    for the first few weeks maybe, but still the parade route is pretty long, there are plenty of places to stan and a few spots will be open at at least one of the viewings.
