    We were at MVMCP on Thursday, December 21 waiting for the 10:45 p.m. Christmas parade. We headed over to Adventureland to see if any good spots were left since Main Street was pretty crowded. My husband found a spot behind some people who were sitting and we figured it would be an OK spot as long as those people remained seated. One of my sons was tired and said his feet hurt so I took him to sit on stone pillar while my husband and other son stayed in the spot. We ended up sitting down with our backs to the parade route and figured we'd turn around when it started.

    So just as we sat down, a Dream Team guy comes up and asks how many are in our party and I told him 4. He said, "Let's go find the other 2!" So he followed us to my husband and other son and I motioned to my husband to come. He said, "I don't want to lose our spot." And I pointed to the Dream guy and said, "Come on, we're going with him!!" As soon as he saw the Dream guy, he happily followed us. The Dream guy took us through a rope that was blocking the bridge from Liberty Square. While we were walking, he was asking us where we were from, was it our first visit, etc. We said we were from California and it was our second visit but the boys' first. He said, "Well, you've got to have a good view of the parade."

    We ended up at the entrance to Liberty Square in a private, roped-off viewing area where they had set up benches. We thanked the guy before he left. The Dream Squad brought more people and we ended up with about 20 in the area. Since it was a roped-off area, there was no one on the other side of the street so all the characters played to our side when they went by. It was an awesome view of the parade!

    We saw Rabbit too. He was riding on the Winnie the Pooh ride with guests. Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet were riding too. Rabbit was just coming out on a car when we were getting into ours. I started yelling and waving at him hoping he'd come over and ride with us but he couldn't. It was fun to see him!

    That has to be the best spot to watch the parade! 2 years ago when we were there we waited almost 1 hour for a bus at Epcot and they gave us seating there for our troubles! It was amazing as it was my girls first time to Disney and what a way to watch the parade! Those characters really do focus all their attention to those in that area!

    Twice we got the reserved seating for the parade. One was for regular afternoon parade and the second time was MVMCP ! They also gave us Santa Hats. Stitch for my son and Mickey for me!
