Rio Carnival - Samba Parade Tickets 2014

My two friends and I have booked our dream trip to see the Carnival in Rio next feb. (2014). I know I'm a bit ahead of schedule in terms of ticket reservations as there's another 6 months to go (can't wait :)) but then again, this way, I can research, plan carefully and have plenty of time to ask you Rio natives and pro advisors a bunch of stupid questions :)

So what I'd like to know, is when is the best day to go to the Sambodromo? Unfortunately, we'll be leaving on the day of the champion's parade, but we can still go any day between Feb 28 - Mar 4.

Also, it's rather difficult to understand the difference between the different grandstand-tickets besides the price. Which ones give the most value for money?

My final question is, should we pre book the tickets to make sure to get a good view or should we follow the recommendation in many other threads here in this forum and just go there and buy the tickets outside the Sambodromo?

Thank you in advance for your feedback

Best day: the main Rio Samba Parade in the Sambodromo (also known as the Rio Carnaval Parade) will be held on Sunday, March 2, and on Monday, March 3. (It begins Sunday evening and continues into the early morning on Monday.)

The more expensive tickets afford you a better location. Buy your tickets in advance.
