The final push is in place for Halloween at Walt Disney World and soon the tinsel and lights will adorn the Magic Kingdom.

As many Disney fans know, Disney produces a number of shows throughout the holidays. These specials share great entertainment featured inside the Disney Parks and allow guests and Cast Members to be featured on camera.

A couple of years ago, I (Donna) enjoyed holiday filming at both the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. Be sure to read the full story from that experience HERE.

This can be a magical experience for many guests, but it does alter the traditional entertainment schedule for guests visiting. If you have no interest in being part of the filming, you may want to avoid Magic Kingdom on 2 select days.

Earlier we shared that there is a schedule change for the Festival of Fantasy Parade at the Magic Kingdom. On November 11th there is only one showtime at a peculiar time and no parades at all on November 12th.

This is a HUGE indicator that something is happening out of the ordinary on November 11th and 12th over at the Magic Kingdom. This is on track with confirmed filming dates for the past two years as well.

If you have ever hoped to be on television for a Disney Christmas special, you may want to wear your favorite Mickey ears and head to the parks on these dates.  There will be special performances in front of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom sporadically throughout those dates.

If you have no desire to be part of this filming, you will want to avoid Magic Kingdom on these dates. There will be higher crowds, closed-off walkways, and fewer entertainment options.

It looks as if Holiday filming will take place on November 11th and 12th at the Magic Kingdom.

The good news is that you can adjust your plans now before the actual dates are officially confirmed.

What do you think of the holiday filming? Do you hope to be a part of this filming or will you avoid Magic Kingdom? Share your thoughts with us and share this news with your Disney pals.
