Planning on attending the Christmas Parade taping on Nov. 9, anyone have any suggestions or info? If you've gone before what can I expect?
I have no desire to do this. LOL - MrsSchnooks  2564.1 #34 10-22-13 2:16PM Like(1)  Reply

Thanks everyone!  I saw that the taping was 11/9, but I didn't see it when I just checked the Dland website.  It's just one of those things I've always wanted to do 😎😎😎 - DisneyPrincessT  22.7 #5695 10-22-13 1:26PM Like  Reply
Where did you see this? I'm gonna be there that day too wondering if the parks are gonna be really crowded? - Jeaniust  80.3 #3572 10-22-13 1:53PM
I don't think they post it on the website? But then again I've never checked lol - MEHlanie_Mouse  1113.8 #108 10-22-13 2:17PM
It is a LONG day. We couldn't sit through it after about 4 hours.  You also must be by the buildings and not farther up or down Main St. Otherwise you won't be on camera. We made that mistake last year. - DLKenCA  1195.0 #97 10-22-13 1:51PM Like  Reply
Dress in your Christmas best if you want to get on camera.  They always show close ups on those wearing holiday items, especially if they are Disney holiday items. - Sarafina  421.7 #431 10-22-13 2:14PM Like  Reply
👆👆👆LOL!  I'll probably feel that way afterwards - DisneyPrincessT  22.7 #5695 10-22-13 2:18PM Like  Reply
LONG DAY. Dress Christmas-y but be prepared for it to not be winter weather 😂 people go super early so they can get spots on main st. And they film well until 5-6ish I wanna say? Maybe earlier though. They do a lot of Re-takes, each Christmas parade float one at a time lol  - MEHlanie_Mouse  1113.8 #108 10-22-13 2:19PM Like  Reply
I'm curious what the appeal is to all this? I am legitimately curious. Either way have fun. I'll probably be riding space mountain or eating dole whip lollol - missmimi90  1311.0 #85 10-22-13 2:56PM Like  Reply
We were there last year Mimi and that's exactly what we did lol. Also DCA tends to be dead so that's always a fun option - missariel33  1101.4 #114 10-22-13 3:11PM
You get the chance to see Mario Lopez, duh!! 😂😂 and because people want to try to get on tv really.  - MEHlanie_Mouse  1113.8 #108 10-23-13 10:13AM
well you get to see the filming of the xmas parade that is LIVE 12/25 but its different because they mix soundsational and they have disney channel stars sing xmas music plus they have big parade balloons of characters too. they say it's the xmas parade but its sooooo different. - pikarich  1856.1 #60 10-23-13 10:22AM
It'll also probably be a day of lots of celebrities in the park if they stick around after parade taping. - MrsGoodface  58.8 #3964 10-23-13 12:34PM
I saw it last year. You see the same thing over and over and over because of retakes. Very hot last year so hosts etc. looked miserable in their holiday finery ;). I was able to get in a lot of rides during taping and the bonus is I was able to see Lightning and Mater on Main St. Fun to see once. - ShariRenee  3415.2 #24 10-23-13 12:42PM Like  Reply
