    Times of Parade Taping?

    I know the Christmas parade tapings at the MK are this Fri & Sat, but anyone know what time(s)? I know I've seen them somewhere, but can't find them now....

    thanks - Andy

    I was under the impression that the parade is taped in segments and takes most of the day.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    If not most of the day, at least the entire morning into the early afternoon. Honestly, I would avoid MK during the parade taping.

    I'm thinking about going specifically to check out some of the tapings - I know it will probably be a zoo, but I only live about 1-1.5 hours away, and I'm a passholder, so it's not a big deal...

    I got the impression that it was an all-day event where they just keep doing the parade over and over to get all the shots.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    I went Friday late afternoon and saw the taping for the girl from American Idol (sorry, don't remember her name... not much of an Idol fan...) singing with all the Princesses - interesting to see the filming and the multiple takes...

    I thought that she did a great job! I She sounded good on TV anyhow. I would really like to see the taping, it must be interesting. What time did you have to get there? Did you have to make any special reservations, or as a passholder did you just show up?

    There was a roped off area for the audience you saw on TV - I believe they give passholders free tickets into that area, but that they went real fast when given away online - don't know if everyone in that area had tickets, or if you just showed up early enough if you could get in...

    In any case, you could still get a pretty good view of what was going on from several places in front of & to the sides of the castle.... and being it was Friday, it wasn't that crowded in general, and most of the congestion (of course) right in front of the castle....
