Christmas parade taping

Hello, I know this may be kind of early, but does anyone know who will be performing in the Christmas Parade? We will be there Nov 27 thru Dec 6th and my daughter is a huge ONE DIRECTION fan. Personally, I hope they are not perfomring, lol, because the Magic Kingdom is not on my radar for that weekend. Too many ADPs to change around, etc... TIA

It's kind of early. We don't typically get wind of this info until just a few days before.

My girls & I have been trying to guess which performers will be there as well. We thought maybe One Direction or Carly Rae Jespen. If it's someone they like, we may go check it out as we will be there as well.

At least two of the following 4 dates, with the actual "parade" elements on Saturday.
Sunday is a back-up day, if needed.

Any idea what time they start and possibly wrap up.

I noticed they moved the parade to 5pm on thurs, fri, any chance they will do the xmas parade because of the inconvenience?

1- In general, Fri & Sat, yes.
2- 7:30AM-ish
3- 2:00PM-ish
4- Unless you normally spend your MK day on Main Street, I don't think that
it should eat too much of your time.
5- What Thursday and Friday are you addressing?

Give it another week or so.

They usually don't leak that info very early.

I heard it was One Direction, that Justin kid (young adult?) and Taylor Swift.

Oh and Aero Smith. x 2
