Question about Tony's Town Square at MK and watching parades

We want to book an ADR at Tony's Town Square at MK. We would like to watch the Electrical parade from the patio (yes I know we wouldn't be guaranteed a seat in the patio area, but we can hope/try).

I have a few questions:-

1) Is it likely to be too cold to eat outside in the patio area in mid-December?

2) Would a 5:55pm reservation or 7:10pm be better for being able to watch the 8pm Electrical Parade? I know the 5:55pm reservation is a bit too early, but I have read you sometimes have to wait for tables even in you have an ADR and if you definitely want a patio table, it is better to state this at the podium and then wait until one comes available. Not sure how my plan would work out.

5:55pm would mean less park/ride time, but would 7:10pm cut down our chances of our plan working!!?

3) Can anyone comment who has actually eaten here and watched the parade regarding the view. Is it very obstructed by people curbside? We possibly like the idea of not having to sit on the floor along Main Street waiting for the parade for hours to get a good spot and thought eating here would be a good compromise. What do you think?

I'd appreciate any comments on the above. This is the first time we have done ADRs (4th trip to Disney though) :-)

I am wondering this exact thing. Maybe better to post in the Disney Restaurants main forum.

we are eating there for the parade and have reservations 45 minutes before the parade starts.

the plan is to get there early, scope it out and if it looks busy then go ahead request our table outside prior to reservation time so we can get in the wait.. im thinking it wont be busy and we will be able to get an outside table with no issues.

weather is unpredictable but our last xmas vacation there I don't remember a time when it was unbearable at all. it was very pleasant.

the big thing with your earlier option is you will be there too early and even with app, main, dessert you will be done with over an hour to spare and not sure how that will fly hogging up a table lol.
