We're planning a trip with our 8 year old in Dec. The FoF parade timing is 3 PM.
Our plan is to hit the park early (before opening) and cover some of the main attractions before noon - have secured 2 FPs for that plus have a plan for some of the other shows/rides. We are hoping to leave the park between noon & 3 for a lunch/nap break and be back re-energized to last upto the 9 PM Happily Ever After show & fireworks. We didn't get a Disney Resort reservation but are staying at the close by Hyatt in the WDW area.
We have a fast pass for Belle & the Enchanted castle in the 3PM-4PM window. This means that we will be reentering the park at around the same time as the FoF parade. Will the roads be blocked for us to navigate our way towards FantasyLand? Is there a way to see the parade from somewhere and then get to FantasyLand by 3:30 PM? I read that the parade lasts 12 mins and the Belle event is at 3:10 and 3:40 PM - so we could get the 3:40 one.
Any suggestions on how do we make this work will be appreciated.
