Disney Tip #2 – Watch the Parade

Make sure you get a good spot for Disney’s Parade of Dreams featuring seven elaborate floats and over one hundred performers. The parade starts from the Small World area and makes its way down Main Street. If there are two parades during the day, the 2nd one will reverse this direction.

We positioned ourselves right across from the fire station on Main Street by the entrance which happened to be the END of the parade route because there was only one showing of the parade that day.

The kids were transfixed by the many performers, especially the stilt walkers and the characters from the Lion King float. The parade stopped when the Pinocchio float was right in front of us. We had a great view of the Russian dancers jumping and flipping on their trampoline.

Nice pic. Do you have a new baby?

Bets...don't you think I would have said something to you if I was pregnant. It's hard to keep all that barfing under wraps for too long. Anyway, you aren't the only one with adorable nieces and nephews (even if I have to google "nieces" to make sure I've spelled it right.)

The two extra kids are Calvin and Hazel, my almost 4 year old nephew and 2 year old niece. (Anglea is their mom.)
