##NEWS. The filming of the Christmas Day parade will be this weekend, November 3-4. I believe they film on Saturday for the Christmas Day Special (the parade) and Sunday (possibly for the New Year's performance in front of the castle). Please feel free to correct me. If you would like to be considered a spectator at the edge of the curb for the parade please try to wear holiday/Christmas colors and attire. Have fun! Last year some MWers made it on tv!

Spoiler Alert: They filmed some NYE footage that weekend last year, too. One Republic in front of the castle, right? - susieQzee  555.8 #366 9:59PM
You are correct. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 10:05PM
Yup that's was fun to not be a spoiler lol - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 10:05PM
Didn't they do their music video at the same time? - KermitFan13  653.7 #307 10:52PM
Saturday is usually the parade. If there is a concert it's that night. And they do other filming on Sunday for filler. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 10:16PM
I'm planning on being there the Nov 3-4 weekend since I couldn't make it this weekend due to a family emergency. Does the parade taping make the park extremely busy.....or just a little harder to navigate through Main Street? Thanks for any info....just trying to plan ahead! - SBsnowwhite  522.6 #397 10:34PM
It clogs up a bit of Main Street, but you can easily avoid that by navigating through the shops. The rest of the park was as busy as a typical, early November day. - susieQzee  555.8 #366 10:43PM
Thanks....I appreciate the info! - SBsnowwhite  522.6 #397 10:56PM
I hope I can make it this year! Haven't been to the parks in a while. - misseeyore  538.0 #384 10:43PM

Any word on if anything will be happening on the 2nd? We're making a quick trip up for some pins. We'll probably be there most of the day. (Fingers crossed!) Hoping nothing that will make it too much busier than usual. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #335 10:59PM

I've been in this parade, for the macys day parade. It takes place on Saturday, and that is also when they film the performance of whoever singer. When I did it 4 years ago, I was a backup dancer for Corbin Bleu and The Jonas Brothers performed. It is an incredible experience and I highly suggest watching from the sides because we got to interact with the crowd a little bit. And you might make it on TV! - noelleybelly  172.8 #2361 10:09AM
Does anyone know what time they do a filming? An estimate? Also anyone have any news on the new years eve filming? - ThisBeautyFoundHerBeast  5.7 #16728 10:27AM
I don't know what time they do the filming. Maybe someone else does. Also, the New Years Eve from Disneyland filming is done that same weekend. I haven't heard yet who will be there. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 10:36AM
I beleive last year it started at 10. We only hung out in the parade route till 2. It was getting hot plus we has a 3 year old with us. But it was fun while it lasted. A lot if waiting. We sat next to a camera man whose sole purpose was to take crowd reaction shots. Our girls were dressed in holiday gear. He taped them about 10 times but we didn't see them in the final cut. - PrincessDuckie  905.2 #202 10:55AM
Thanks for the news! - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 10:50AM

I'll be working from 8-4 up by the castle, probably guarding something. It's possible I'll play in the park after my shift for a while. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 2:18PM
Very seriously considering going, although I need some Christmas gear! - Sarafina  491.7 #432 2:23PM
My thoughts exactly! I dont have my christmas stuff out of the closet yet.. What a great excuse to go shopping LOL but its so hot out blech - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 7:48PM
Bump! Filming for the parade is Saturday! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 10:57AM
Couple of things.. Like IDVSCM said the is on Saturday. If its anything like last year, and they tape the New Years concert Saturday since more guests will be in attendance. Sunday they film the indoor shots like the did with Christina A. (Sorry couldn't spell her name right). If you're going To the parade, wear comfortable shoes since last year they made everyone stand up, no sitting was allowed on the curbs edge. Be festive and energetic, that's what cameramen look for in the crowd. And plan to stay for a few hours because they will run the parade through a few times. It's a fun experience and I can't wait to see pictures sine I gotta work all weekend πŸ˜ͺ - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 11:06AM
They had to film indoors last year because it rained that weekend. Weather should be okay this year - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 11:09AM
Last year the only reason Christina was in the Grand was because of the rain or threat of it. Normally she would have performed outside. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 11:09AM
Beat me to it again, Kevin! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 11:10AM
My bad 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 11:26AM
