Spectro is scheduled, and often not every night of the week. For example, in May it's only on most Tuesdays and Saturdays. During busier times of the year it is every night, and I guess more than once during really busy times.

I won't see Spectro until next Saturday, but I've been told to sit anywhere but Main St. and the hub in front of Cinderella's since everyone else sits there. Good spots are supposedly from the Hall of Presidents down through Frontierland. I'll let you know when we get back.

During busier times of the year it runs twice a night (when the MK is open real late). There is an earlier showing like at 8pm-ish and then another one at around 10-sometimes it closes the park.

I think any place is great to see the parade. I have watched it from the hub of Main Street, from the Castle but I think my favorite place is from Frotierland-if you are lucky you can get a seat on the rock wall (I think it is rock) or in the rocking chairs.

When it shows only once a night it starts at Main Street and then ends in Frontierland. But when it is twice a night the second showing starts in Frontierland.

Have fun and enjoy it. When it shows less then nightly it can get crowded.

Our "secret" place to watch is in Frontierland. Your back is to the Mill on Tom Sawyer's Island, and you're facing the shooting range (I think). Anyway, there are benches that are not bolted to the ground. When the ropes go up, you can scoot the bench up to the rope and have a first rate seat. There's was enough room between the benches to fit our double stroller, so the kids had their own seat. And there's a food cart right there. I think it's pretzels. I made my DH go get the food, so I'm not sure if it was the one right next to us, or if he had to walk a bit. We usually got there about a half hour before the parade. And the Country Bears entertained last time we were there. My kids enjoyed seeing them run around until one literally lost his head and went fleeing (human head showing). They kind of freaked out over that. Interesting to say the least. But it's a nice place to sit. We've never made it in time for the rockers. But that would be a nice place to sit too.
