We were there last year when Justin Bieber was performing for the taping. Main Street was an absolute madhouse. They actually opened up the area behind the buildings because the crowds were so thick. I will never go to a parade taping again, it was just too chaotic. We didn't know it was going on, so we walked into the MK totally clueless about what was happening.

But, again, it was Main Street that was packed.

I spend nearly zero time on Main Street in the mornings (I love it at night)
so if you just avoid Main Street, you can have a pretty normal day back in the other areas of the park, where the attractions are.


BTW, below is the "the area behind the buildings" that was mentioned.
Guests can bypass the crush on Main Street and emerge into the park
near the Plaza and Noodle Station Restaurants.

Hi Robo the friday and sat I was talking about was nov 30th, dec 1
They moved the normal afternoon parade at 3pm to 5 pm. At least that is what i noticed today on disney's calender.

When they have the backstage area open for a walking path. Is there much signage or cast members pointing people in that direction?
Or is it obvious because its packed on main street.

If there are performers going on during taping days. Where are the performances at? Right at the castle?
How do you find out who is performing?

Any idea what time they start and possibly wrap up.

kind of frustrating it eats into our park times.

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

If this years performers are anything like The Beeb last year, they will tweet during the week about going to Disney to tape the parade performance and cause MK (well at least the Main St and Hub area) to be more of a madhouse than it already was going to be.

So far that 5PM info is only on the "official"WDW Calendar site (and that site is infamously inaccurate,)
but, in this case, I wouldn't be surprised if that was the truth.

And, yes, it would likely be the "Christmas Parade" performed on those days (at least on that Saturday.)
It is also possible that they would perform the "Christmas Parade" the next day (Sunday Dec. 2,) too.

Another way to avoid Main St. those days is to immediately go up to the train station upon entering the park and take the railroad to Frontierland or Fantasyland.

Yes,usually Tweets and /or Facebook entries by the artists themselves is the best way to discover who's coming to WDW for the taping.

I was there last year when Disney was trying to keep everything close to the vest about the main performer to keep the place from getting out of control.

Then the "Beibs" tweeted he was headed to the World to tape the parade the night before and as expected, it exploded.

What an immature kid.

I was at MK last year on the Saturday of the parade taping that Beiber was there, and on that day the parade was done at 5 pm. It was the normal 3 o'clock parade on that day, not the Christmas parade.

Great info!

I LOVE Lady A!

UNLESS they were part of the Disneyland portion that has already been filmed,but I didn't see them mentioned there so it MUST be Disney World.

We were there last year on Friday. Got to see Jennifer Hudson & CeLo. We didn't have tickets to be right up against the castle but had no trouble seeing the action. The rest of the park was pretty dead. Had a great day with my son while my wife was celebrity spying at the castle. Lady Antebellum is probably not the only performers.
