Default Where to watch the parades and fireworks at MK with wheelchair ans scooter

We’re going to MVMCP. My mom is hoping to get a scooter and my dad will be in a wheel chair. Where do you recommend watching the fireworks and parade at. My brother seems to think that there is a special place for handicapped but I didn’t think they did that anymore. Neither will be able to stand long enough for the fireworks. So we will need a spot that allows them to see without standing.

if you can get to the center of the Main Street square by the flag pole that is a great spot or try for the sidewalk at the base of the train station (or up the ramp if not blocked off).

There is handicap specific location. Just ask a CM where it is.

Well unfortunately I stand corrected. I just looked up online to see if the handicap viewing area to which my Mom used last time she was there is in the same spot, to tell you where it's located, and I'm reading the new fireworks show doesn't have it. Much apologies. Totally surprised they would take that away.

Hope I can describe this location properly. Near the Hub, towards Liberty Square there are two or three benches in a row where a person can sit and watch the fireworks. It was really nice to have them when we were there.
