Guests may stop and watch the tapings during regular park hours, but as always specific tickets to be part of the audience before and after park hours are only available to cast members.

This year will mark the first in the special’s 33-year history that some part of the parade portion will not take place at Walt Disney World.

There’s no word if there be another name change this year.

This is always a fun time at Disney even though there’s lots of standing there’s always something to see those with mobility issues should definitely seek a wheelchair if they cannot stand for long periods of times and always make sure you have water!
