    Re: Christmas news from the MK.

    Anyone have any news on what this new Christmas parade is going to be?

    Something actually new? or recycled elements set to new music?

    From the press release, the themed segments sound awfully similar to Disneyland's "A Christmas Fantasy Parade". Perhaps that is what they are going for?

    I'm staying positive though.

    just read on another site that tickets for the nov 30th ap taping are all gone. haven't heard what they did about the saturday taping but i bet it's dvc people. that way lighthouse doesn't have to pay for park enterance. they used to put up a number of tickets for each days taping but as a cost saving measure they now use ap's and dvc's.

    the tickets for friday are for APers. that is the day they do the entertainment. last year they had dvc members on friday and apers on saturday, bet they reveersed it this year. our tickets for friday were ordered this afternoon so we are all set. oh and another side note, If you show up at MK at 3 pm on saturday dec 1, you will have a really good chance of seeing the christmas parade without paying for the party. that is if they follow what they have done in years past. and summer's list is for all performers, that includes DL as well as WDW.

    Ok, I just found the list of who will be there this year.

    Regis Philbin
    Kelly Ripa
    Ryan Seacrest
    High School Musical Stars
    Justin Bartha
    Miley Cyrus
    Billy Ray Cyrus
    Jonas Brothers
    Joey Fantone/Drew Lachey
    Michael Buble
    Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
    Mana
    Carlos Santana
    Carrie Underwood
    Josh Groban
    Harlem Boys Choir
    Whitney Houston

    I emailed Lightship for tickets because they handled the production last year but I haven't heard back yet (its only been 10 minutes) As the email address I got wasn't a direct email for tickets, I'll let everyone know once I learn more regarding how to obtain them if I get an answer.

    You know... you will be fighting crowds as well during the party
    That is true!

    And no, I don't think it is a good thing. If we go to any park during Christmas time it is to Epcot. And that is only in the beginning of December.

    Just like the airlines overbook flights all the time. Problem is...these parties do not have the 15% no show factor the airlines bank on when they overbook.

    Kind of like the Halloween party at DCA. They are really overbooking these events.

    Some day guests are also crashing the party's outdoor events because there is no park shutdown between the regular hours and party time..as it used to be the case a few years ago. Look closely and you will see some guests not wearing the required wristband.

    So all the WDW fans are okay with this? I dread the day when they try this stuff at Disneyland when it's WDW West in 20 years.

    That kind of sucks. You can see more Christmas stuff at MK, only if you go during the busiest time of year?

    Ditto. Does anyone know when they are filming the parade? Is it the same dates as last year? I would love to go out again, I had the best time.

    Besides, if the cast of High School Musical is there I can be the "bestest" mommy EVER!
    It looks like it is November 30th.
    If you miss the cast of HSM, you can always catch Monique Coleman at the Candlelight Processional December 5-7.

    I found this part funny: Passholders can save $10 off the day-of purchase price-if you order in advance. So instead of $51 you pay $40. I think if they really wanted to be inticing for passholders they would give you $10 the normal advanced ticket price $33 instead of $43. It is pricey no matter how you look at it.

    Nothing has ever been exclusive to the party. Everything they do at the party is available to regular guests after the last party ends.. even the leftover party-exclusive pins are sold off to regular guests. The only thing they won't do for regular guests during regular hours is giving away free cookies and cocoa. As for the lights... I believe it will be a nightly thing. And if Disney played their cards correctly, they would do an Illumination ceremony for day guests on days when the party is not held... including the snow fall over Main Street as an added ceremony treat. I can only hope. HKDL did this last year for Xmas, so..why not the MK?

    Yes, and if they continue to do the Christmas fireworks (modified) and the 'Twas the Night Before Christmas show in the Tomorrowland theater those would be... until the week of Christmas.
