8 Park Tips From Someone Who Has Done it All at Disney


4. Get spots for parades/shows early

While I am not the type to get a spot for parades or shows hours in advance, I will secure a place about 30-45 minutes beforehand and it normally works out pretty well for me. If you’re trying to see a popular show, such as Fantasmic! or Happily Ever After, you definitely won’t want to wait until the last minute to get your spot. It may seem silly to sit around waiting for a 15-20 minute show, but you can use this time to snack, play games with your family or plan your next day.
