Does the filming in any way hinder reservations or opening time for BBB or dining at the castle? I'm also hoping to get a super-early reservation for both on Sunday (the "rain day") and have that semi-alone time on Main Street to snap a few pics of my little princess.

Avoid it at all costs. Unless you are staying for a lengthy period of time and have absolutely nothing to do and tons of time to kill. Even then, it is soooooo boring.

There will only be a problem if the TV taping on Saturday is delayed due to rain. Otherwise its a normal Sunday in early December.

If they do move it, there will be less people on Main Street on Sunday vs Saturday, but its going to be a ton of people setting up stuff, guests waiting for the parade and will probably look like a movie set.

We've done the Christmas taping twice. You really don't need tickets to it as you can join in the crowd. You got to be there early to get the front row. Just be prepared to be there a good 3 to 6 hours to be in other parts of the taping. If you have young kids, it may be tough on them to stick it out that long. We did, as well as others, and it was a challenge to all of us with young kids.

We were there this past Dec. when they filmed. We forgot and were in the front of MK when we saw the crowds that morning and we did a fast 'U turn' and left. No way would we want to be in that madness.

I don't even watch it on TV anymore.
same here... we did it in 2005..never again! after listening to Brian Setzer (from Stray Cats) for 4 hours sing "he's Dashing" over and over and over .... we backed out of the crowd and to the rides...it was horrible!
