    When we watch Spectromagic we either stand in Main Street USA or in the hub by the station. We have never watched from any other part of the Magic Kingdom. Occasionally if we are early enough we sit upstairs on the balcony at the station, but I prefer to be ground level for Spectro.

    With the Dream Come True Parade, we normally sit up at the station if we can or stand in Main Street.

    The only time we stand somewhere different is for the Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It! Street Party and then we stand outside the Castle.

    Do you have a favourite place to stand when watching one of the Parades, or do you stand anywhere?

    We generally aren't bothered watching the parades except for MNSSHP and MVMCP parades. Then we are normally over in Frontierland.

    We tend to watch parades all over the park.

    We usually wind up in Liberty Square or Frontier Land. When the kids were younger we would line up 20-30 minutes before the parade started for a good view but now we don't usually grab a spot too early, we just walk up a few minutes before the parade starts.

    I have never yet watched a parade in MK and have been going to WDW since 1999. Shame on me!

    wherever we are, or whewrever we find a spot!

    I ALWAYS get confused about which way the parade will go, so I have decided to stop making plans as I sually get it wrong!

    As for the Move it Shake it, anywhere where it stops, its so much fun!!

    kind of got shut out last time....we tried to cram in a few extra rides and had to watch it from the area near the red rocks near the Laugh Floor. Lots of rude people push in on us and made it tough to catch a good glimpse. Our best spot is in front the castle over by the entrance to Adventureland against the iron fence. You can catch Spectromagic and stick around for Wishes.

    What a shame, I have noticed there seems to be a lot more rude people at WDW now :sigh:

    Yeah, sadly WDW is starting to more resemble a world with more rude behavior. What is up with that?
