My DH and I were just there the first week of September and had a fantastic place to watch the parade and see the headless horseman go by!

We stood near the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon. They will have the metal rope holding poles in the ground and the masking tape on the ground well before the headless horseman is due to ride. Look at the masking tape and you'll see that the tape extends beyond the poles and creates a walkway towards the restrooms near the Swiss Family Treehouse. That walkway is an emergency exit and no one can stand there at anytime during the parade! Stand in the corner created by the masking tape on the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon side. You'll have a great view because there's a bend in the road and you'll be able to see everything perfectly!

(I know that's a terrible description, but it's the best I could come up with. )

I looked at some photos of the Grave Diggers (very cool!) during the parade and there's a wooden sign hanging (on the river side of Frontierland) across from where we stood that says something like "Rivers of America"...maybe...something along those lines!

Hope this helps a little bit! Make sure you stay within the tape though! They constantly made people move even during the parade if they weren't inside the masking tape!

Remember the Headless Horseman rides about 5 or 10 minutes before the parade starts!

This was our first MK Halloween party. We loved the parade and the fireworks were spectacular. The Hocus Pocus show I would pass on in the future. Just didn't enjoy it.

Had a great evening at MK that night and really enjoyed the atmosphere! Have fun!

You receive one of those "We can't wait to welcome you home" emails with the detail of your reservation. And you read it and think "What did I reserve?" because you didn't call Member Services or go on the website that day. And then it dawns on you, My Waitlist Came Through!


Or maybe that's just me.

You're supposed to compulsively check online at least 4 times a day.
