We have the official dates for when the Christmas special filming is scheduled to take place at Walt Disney World. Every year Disney releases a special show that airs on Christmas Day, which features a parade, musical performances, special guests and more. Last year Disney also released a special in November, so the filming begins earlier. It looks like we will get both a November and December special again this year. The filming for the event always takes place in advance so that it can be edited and perfected for the Christmas Day debut. This year the filming is scheduled to take place at Walt Disney World in early November starting on November 3rd and running through November 7th.
The Walt Disney World filming lineup will NOT consist of a parade. The parade will be filmed at Disneyland in California. The filming will include various stage performances with Christmas songs and other favorites performed by celebrity musical guests as well as other stage show performances and appearances. The viewing areas for the shows during filming will mostly be cast members and their guests. Guests will not be able to purchase tickets to be among those around the stage. It is possible that guests will be able to see and hear some of the filming from other areas around the park, but they definitely won’t get a very close view since this is an event that cast members are always invited to participate in.
Who else can’t wait to see this year’s specials?
