Dates Confirmed for Filming at Walt Disney World for Holiday Specials

Credit: Disney

Every year, Disney hosts a series of holiday specials where guests at home get to enjoy the holiday parade, musical performances, looks at Disney Parks around the globe and more. These performances that take place within the theme parks are typically filmed in advance so that they are ready to debut closer to the holidays. We have confirmed that the filming is set to take place from November 7th through 10th.


The filming will take place across several of the Walt Disney World theme parks. The filming may take place outside of regular theme park hours or during the regular operating hours when guests are present. Guests are not able to get tickets specifically to be a part of the taping, but they are able to observe the filming that takes place during park hours, based on space and availability.

The television specials with the various performances will air on ABC and the Disney Channel closer to the holidays.

Who has been present to witness the taping of these performances in the parks in previous years?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
