Disney Parks Holiday Programming to Begin Filming at Walt Disney World November 7
One of the most popular questions around this time of the year is, “When will Disney begin filming the Disney Parks Holiday programming specials at Walt Disney World?” Disney likes to keep this schedule close to their chest, but per online sources, we are reporting that this year’s specials will be filmed at Walt Disney World from November 7 to November 10.
In recent years, the Disney Parks Holiday programming footage from Walt Disney World has included performances by hit signers and performers while the holiday parade has been filmed at Disneyland. We anticipate that to be no different this year but are unsure when the parade will be filmed at Disneyland. A schedule of performers coming to Walt Disney World is yet to be released.
Filming for the Disney Parks Holiday programming will be ongoing from November 7 to November 10 during normal park hours as well as after the parks close to the general public. Cast Members and their families have first dibs on prime locations during filming. However, it is not uncommon for Disney to need to fill extra spots and invite park Guests to be in the crowds during the performances. It is important to note that any filming during park hours may limit Guest’s access to certain attractions as they temporarily close.
So, you may be wondering what parks will Disney be filming their Disney Parks Holiday programming in each day. Nothing has been confirmed at this time but it’s looking like filming will begin at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on November 7. (As you can imagine, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be the focus of any footage there.) Filming will go on at the Magic Kingdom on November 9 and 10. We are unsure what park will be filmed on November 8 but by process of elimination, we are expecting both Disney’s Animal Kingdom and some Epcot. Of course, filming can be going on at any time in any park during the 4-day window.
The Disney Parks Holiday programming will air during several TV specials throughout the months of November and December on ABC, the Disney Channel, and FreeForm. With the upcoming launch of Disney+ on November 12, a special or two may even end up there.
