    Parades

    Hi, I realise this is a bit previous but I have found that if you plan your vacation to WDW like a military operation you get the most of out of your valuable time there.
    Can anyone suggest a good place to video the Not so scary Halloween Parade?
    Thanks.

    We done ours of MNSSHP in 2005 from outside " Casey,s Corner " on Maine Street.
    Because you,ve got plenty of light from the Maine Street itself & the colourful buildings as a background................not to mention the Castle ...................which is a great background in some of the film too.
    We done MVMCP from there one year 2008 & another year went up to Frontierland 2007...............................much prefered doing the video from around the Maine Street Area..............because of the lovely colours on the Castle & the Buildings in the back-ground.
    Where-ever you do decide ...................you need to go get your place at least 1/1& a half hours before the parade at least or you won,t get a space to get a good filming spot.

    I like to watch from Liberty Square. You can sit on the stone walls across from the Liberty Tree Tavern. It is a perfect spot to watch everything coming toward you and then turning and driving in front of you.

    Of course I think the best part is seeing the Headless Horseman atop a horse bigger than I thought possible racing at you and skidding around the corner at a very fast pace.

    I think for nearly any parade, a fantastic spot is to get up in the few seats outside the train station. Granted if it's Christmas that isn't the best shot because the tree is sort of in the way.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.
