Hi as I have never been to US or IOA could someone please tell me if there are any parades or fireworks at either of the parks and at what time if any.

Many thanks

Around Xmas/NY they usually have the Macy's parade.
Summer time they have fireworks but nothing like Disney, if you are there they are a bonus at the end of the day, not worth a special trip or staying in a lot longer just to see them.

Macy's Parade was on just as it got dark last December and just before the park shut, think it was about 5 or 6 pm. We enjoyed it.

In the peak summer months, Universal runs the 360 show which is a combination of fireworks, film clips on giant globes on the water, fire and lasers. Again we enjoy these. They are usually on at 9 pm, I think but in any case not long before the park shuts for the day.
