I purchased the Dessert Party for MNSSHP for 10/16 and I was wondering from those that attended, how late can you comfortably show up at Town Square and get a decent spot to watch the parade? I know the parade starts at 8:35pm, but that is all the way up in Frontierland.
How long does it take for the parade to get to Town Square? Also, I understand I don’t want to wait too long because getting back to Town Square could be difficult if the park is crowded. I know you can check in as early at 7:30pm, but that seems awfully early if the parade does not reach the reserved viewing area until 9ish.
