Disney’s annual holiday television specials are returning to record throughout Walt Disney World next month and you may be able to get a behind the scenes look. They will air on ABC and Disney Channel in November and December.

From Nov. 3 to 7, 2017 Disney will be filming portions of the holiday specials all around the Walt Disney World Resort. Like last year, the parade portion will be taped at Disneyland in California. There’s no word yet when that will take place.

For Walt Disney World, there will be multiple musical performances and stage show elements taped around the resort. Guests are welcome to stop and watch the tapings during regular park hours as space permits, but specific tickets to be part of the audience before and after park hours will only be made available to cast members and their guests.

There are no details on which locations will be used or who will be performing and hosting, but stay tuned to our website and socials for the latest news.

Take a look at the playlist below to see some of our behind the scenes videos from over the years of the Christmas Day special.
