Park by park filming schedule for ABC Holiday Specials at Walt Disney World

Last year Disney chose to move all parade filming to Disneyland while all the special singing and many environment filming shots were done at Walt Disney World.  That set up will continue again for 2017 and here’s the dates and parks for each day they are filming here:

  • Friday November 3 – Disney’s Hollywood Studios
  • Saturday November 4 – Disney’s Animal Kingdom
  • Sunday November 5 – Magic Kingdom
  • Monday November 6 – Magic Kingdom
  • Tuesday November 7 – Magic Kingdom

At this time, there is no exact times provided for filming, but they typically happend from morning into early afternoon.  They rarely affect the operations much, except creating some longer walks around the hub area in the Magic Kingdom for the musical acts presentations.

Cast Members are given an opportunity to get tickets to appear for the filming sessions, but the general public will not be given an opportunity for tickets for areas closest to the stage.  You can see the filming from a little more of a distance, if you wish.

  1. Now that I think about it… They may have been doing tests etc as I really could not see much expect the cameras, lighting, the white screen etc. They had Cinderella Castle blocked off. So it could have been just a trial run.

  2. I was at Magic Kingdom on Saturday the 4th and they were actually filming there that day. Since I didn’t go to Animal Kingdom I can’t say if they were filming there as well. So they may have decided to switch days. But I thought it was very interesting to see.

  3. Kenny, who all is going to be there star wise ? We are going down there now,and will be in MK on the 6th ,Thanks.
