    Its on the list of things not allowed in the parks. I was even wondering if cane chairs were allowed.

    Nice! That DOES sound magical! Watching the parade from rocking chairs definitely sounds like my thing, lol. I am also planning on watching the second parade so hopefully this works. Thank you so much for this tip!

    Folding chairs are specifically named on the list of items
    not allowed to be taken into the parks.

    Chairs would be too big to be carried, they won't fit on the rides and they
    won't fit in to a locker.

    No way to make that work.

    I could be wrong, but are the lights by the train station kept on during Wishes, and there is the flag pile in the middle? If so, that may be a hindrance for some. But again I could be wrong there.

    When you grab tables at these areas, you are depriving people who are eating there of the table. If you aren't eating there, you shouldn't be getting a table there.

    1- Yes.

    2- Yes.

    3- Nope.

    While the upper level of the RR Station is spectacular spot to view the evening lighted parade,
    it is not a great spot to see Wishes (for the above reasons,)
    and it is a really POOR location
    to try to see the new "Celebrate the Magic" castle projection Wishes pre-show.

    I bring a stool that folds down almost as small as my rain poncho bag and so far nobody has said anything. I had knee problems so it worked well for watching parades. http://www.amazon.com/Walkstool-Com...TF8&qid=1361812138&sr=8-1&keywords=walk+stool

    That's funny. I was sitting there once and had someone else come up and pretty much expect me to get up and let her sit there. She complained that she was a senior citizen and needed to sit down. The funny part was I was older than she was. She just looked older.

    I guessed there was a issue like kneee problems. I was goiing ti suggest that we are often ableto sit on the ground, but if knee problems are an issue, that's not goiing to work.

    We're not ones to camp out especially early. I see lots of folks sitting on curbs.

    One thing that you might be able to do is a split deployment, where you family find a good spot, then you find a place so sit. (nearby ) When the show is just about to start- that's when you make your move to join them.

    You probably are not going to like my other suggestion...but you could rent a scooter for MK days. You don't have get one the whole vacation, and you don't have to sit in it all day.

    A few years ago, a family member suffered an injury just before our vacation. As the vacation progressed, so did her ability to walk. The scooter really helped. She could walk for short intervals, then as soon as she was sore, she coud sit. That way her muscles did not tighten up.

    Oh no! Not a scooter! That will really traumatize me about turning 30, haha! :rotfl2:

    It's not THAT bad, thank goodness. I just have fluid accumulation in my knees and it can get really painful so yeah, the curb probably won't work. I know I will have to take my pain medication every 6 hours on the dot and I'm hoping to rest every chance I get! For Wishes I will probably just watch from Main Street and then for MS Electrical Parade, I'll head over to Liberty Square or Frontierland and hope to find a seat there like PPs have suggested. It will only be my boyfriend and I so the split deployment wouldn't be nice to him. :)

    Thanks for your concern and the suggestions!

    8 days to go! :yay:

    I know we sat on a low wall in Frontierland. My MIL was with us and has knee problems and we wanted her to sit. So I know we found it there..just can't remember where exactly!
    Oh and this was for the parade not the fireworks.
