Anyone been to Disneyland the day they tape the Christmas Parade?

We are going to be heading to parks Dec 9-11 I just read they will be taping the Christmas parade on the 11th. Can anyone tell me how the crowds are when they do that taping? Is the parade early in the day? We really can't do much as far as changing the dates but I want to try to have some sort of schedule worked out for the day so maybe we will stay in DCA while they tape it then head over later. I don't have any desire to watch it so I really want to try to stay clear of the area while it is going on. Any info from people that have been at the parks when this has gone on in the past would be great. Thanks so much!

Where did you find this information? I'm just asking because it usually happens at the beginning of the holiday season before they put up the garland because some of the floats won't fit?

It was on the huge Christmas thread. One poster had a daughter that was going to be participating in it.

Here's the blog I did on last year's taping.

http://www.disunplugged.com/2009/11/...as-day-parade/

It may give you a little insight on what the three days are like. I found the part not crowded at all, especially since the taping is done on the Main Street area. You can also come and go as you choose from the taping zones, unless you want to stake out a spot of on-camera real estate!

Thanks do much for the post the blog was so fun to read. I am hoping I may be wrong with the dates since last year it was taped so early in November. I am going to re read the Christmas thread now. I hope if we stay clear of the taping areas we will be OK if in fact it is during our visit. Thanks so much again!!

I seem to recall running across the post on the Christmas thread but I was thinking it would be taped in November. YellowMickeyPoncho's blog from last year was in November too. Any one out there know for sure?

The last time I was there for the Christmas season they were taping the parade while I was there. We were there on December 15, 2004... multiple days, but that one sticks out because that is the day DH proposed Obviously it was a while ago so things may be different now. Crowds weren't bad at all.
