Production of the 2017 Disney Parks Holiday specials gets underway at Walt Disney World tomorrow, and with it comes some changes to the entertainment line-up at three of the parks.


Friday November 3 - Disney's Hollywood Studios

Shooting at the Studios will take place on Sunset Blvd throughout the day, and as a result, showtimes for Beauty and the Beast will be changed. Check times guides for the latest, but likely showtimes are 11am, 1pm, 2pm, 5pm and 6pm.

Although shooting takes place November 5 - 7 at the Magic Kingdom, staging and other work will prevent some shows from taking place.

Saturday

No performance of the welcome show - Let the Magic Begin or Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire.

As always, schedules are subject to change.

Following on from last year's new format, there will be multiple shows, set to air throughout the holiday season, in November and December. Airing dates are still to be announced.

Like last year, no parade will be filmed at Walt Disney World, but stage show performances including musical acts will be filmed in Florida. The parade will be filmed at Disneyland Resort in California.

Tickets will not be made available to guests, with Cast Members filling in the audience as extras. It may be possible to see parts of the filming from guest areas however.
