    I just realized that I'll be in the Magic Kingdom on the 3rd. Has anyone been there during the taping before? I'm curious if it's a madhouse or if it's a great opportunity to ride the rides while everyone else is trying to be on TV. Also, we're only there until around 2, then we're heading for EPCOT. Will it be hard to get out of the park due to the parade tapings?

    As long as you stay off of Main Street and the hub, you'll be fine.

    Just to let everyone know....the taping is nothing like the parade on TV....it's taped in segments and it can literally take all day.

    Thank you for the update! I'm hoping we can get in lots of rides while it's going on.

    I thought you need special tickets to enter the park that day, I thought that they film real early in the morning. I couldn't get tickets so I skipped the taping. This is the website that will give you the info on it.

    It's not posted yet, they don't usually post it till about 1 month before. But if your going to be there during that time email them maybe they can give you info that way, this year I won't be there till Dec 5th.

    I believe you need the special tickets to be in the special areas for being filmed to be on the show, but could still go to the rest of the park on a regular ticket.

    Taping goes on for several days, not all of it parade segments. Last year I just walked up to the Castle area where they were filming the segment with Wayne Brady singing & Jim Brickman playing the piano. Not sure if I saw the back of my head in the final version on T.V. or not
