    Does anyone have information on where this is?

    Does this apply to Mickey's Soundsational Parade? or also the DCA parades? Where exactly do they put you that's considered "premium"?

    My coupon just says "For parade viewing location information, visit DL park at least 2 hours prior to the parade show time".

    I believe it is for DL only. With the AAA preferred viewing we had, we got to go right across from IASW. We sat (yes, we could sit, because all that was behind us was plants) on the planter edge and we agreed those were the best seats available. Everything else was standing or sitting/kneeling on the ground. We were so comfortable.

    That said, people here have WAY more knowledge than I do and will probably have lots of tips for you!

    Cool! And did you stay there for TMTMY? Was that a good spot for that too?

    The time difference between the two in march will be several hours. Not worth it in my opinion. Sounsational is a day time parade.

    That is correct, besides currently DCA does not have a parade.

    I thought Pixar Pals is a parade at DCA?

    Also, from our calendar, it says "Mickey's Soundsational Parade" is at 7pm, which I thought makes it perfect to stay after for the TMTMY at 7:45pm

    Sorry. Whenever we've gone the parades are during the day time, not evening. That probably would be a good spot, and the 7:00 parade would start at IASW if the MMAY was at 7:45.

    It's not a parade. They are short shows that roll onto stage and back off. That's why they are scheduled several times today.

    I thought the parade was supposed to return in December. Did that get postponed again?

    There is a rumor for everything including the DCA parade return.

    I imagine a parade will be there this summer. Though if it's any old parade, night parade, day and night parades or a brand new parade, I haven't heard anything credible to these rumors. I'm firmly in wait and see mode on this topic.

    I thought it was in a disney parks blog last summer. But of course I could be totally wrong. I'm not following all the rumors that closely since we don't have a trip planned currently this year. :sad:

    Maybe that was about Soundsational, that was planned for post Christmas Season 2010, then January 2011 but then they extended Celebrate to Christmas and held off Soundsational until Summer?
