Our kids are between 4 and 8 years of age, and this year will be their 3rd visit to WDW. We've had a great time each year, but I want this year to be planned out better than before.(translated, I'm in charge this time LOL).
We were lucky enough to get front-row seats in the Hub for the Christmas parade a couple years ago, but last year at HW, we were in Liberty Square. Great seats, but we completely missed the projections and fireworks. Technically speaking, "I" missed them, as I was holding the spot with a couple sleeping kids.
Any tips on how early you stake out seats, and where? I have read sites like wdwprep, but really looking for the insights of all the people on this board. Seems like a fine balance between getting in place very early vs. missing ride time.
