10 of the Best Places to Watch the “Festival of Fantasy” Parade at Magic Kingdom

Tom Sawyer Island

9.  Tom Sawyer’s Island

This may seem a bit bizarre, but from this island you can actually get a pretty good view of the parade.  this adventure filled rustic, secret hideaway island is straight out of the Mark Twain stories about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in the days of early America.  There are so many fun-filled outdoor activities, like mysterious caves, dirt paths, a swinging bridge, a barrel bridge, an old Army fort, and so much more.  If you happen to be on the island when the parade begins, find a spot and you will be able to see parts of the parade, mostly the floats, and some of the action on the street.  It’s not the best view, but there are no crowds, and you can actually hear the music.  Like I said, it’s not the best spot but at least you don’t have to secure a spot, or deal with the after-the-parade crowd congestion.
