Disney’s Christmas Day parade taping will run a little differently at the theme parks this year. Instead of the actual parade down Main Street, there will be stage show performances that are filmed at Walt Disney World. The parade portion will all be filmed at Disneyland.
At Walt Disney World, filming of the performances will happen from November 9-13 and will take place at all four theme parks. Taping for these will take place during regular park hours and guests will not need tickets to be in the audience. They will air on ABC and Disney Channel over the next two months.
