Welcome to a belated Tip Tuesday (yet again, sigh).
This week, I wanted to share a brief tip about my new favorite spot to watch the Main Street Electrical Parade which also puts you in a great spot to watch Wishes! and the new "Celebrate the Magic" show coming later this fall about which Disney released some conceptual images earlier today. Disney also announced they are expanding the seating area for Fantasmic! at the Studios.
Anyway, back to the MSEP. Many people like to stand in the inner portion of the hub facing Cinderella Castle as the Electrical Parade goes by. I'm a fan of the opposite view. Stand in the hub looking back down Main Street U.S.A. You get a great head-on view of the parade and about halfway through, the lights in Town Square will turn back on so you have a wonderful backdrop for the parade.
Once the parade is done, simply turn around and you're ready for Celebrate the Magic and Wishes. If you want, you can try to move a bit closer to the Partners statue so that it's in the foreground for any pictures you take.
See for yourself - here's video from when I provided a live stream of MSEP and Wishes! back in June. It's in parts, due to the feed getting bounced a few times.
