Disney World Christmas Day Parade Taping 2018
I know every year, Disney World shoots the Christmas Day parade prior to Christmas. Since it's not live, do you know which dates filming will be this year? Would love to book a trip surrounding those dates! Also, do you need special tickets to enter the parks those days... Thanks!"
You never know, but...
The taping of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade will happen on...
OK, I don't actually know for sure. Only Disney does and for the last couple of years they haven't even announced when they will tape it.
That being said, for the last 2 years the taping has been the weekend of the first Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. I think that will happen again this year.
For a long time the taping was during the Pop Warner Championships, but it looks like Disney has settled on early November.
They have totally changed how they tape the show. It's no longer held just in the Magic Kingdom. They set up stages in some of the parks. Last year it was the Magic Kingdom by the Partner's Statue and in Disney's Hollywood Studios at the intersection of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard.
Taping times weren't announced. You just had to be there when the taping was going on.
It's not like the old days when everyone flocked to Main Street and you spent all day watching the taping.
Dad's Bottom Line
The bottom line is there's no way to know exactly when or where Disney will be taping the Christmas Parade show. My guess is early November. Good luck with trying to be there for it.
