    We have a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservation 8:15 Sat Dec 1st and I have also heard that this will be the likely taping day for the Parade. I have heard the castle is closed but isn't the BBB in there? Any advice to navigate to the BBB and how early?

    Hi Karen!

    Although there is no set date for the taping of Disney's Christmas Parade, most guests believe it takes place on the first Friday and Saturday of December, which would make it perhaps November 30th and December 1st, or December 6th and 7th.  Disney does not publicly release the dates of the taping, so there is no way of us knowing for sure which date is will tape on.  Magic Kingdom does get crowded, however, many guests report that it is quite manageable as Disney guest services accommodates guests, with some having to travel backstage in order to access some areas of the park.  That being said, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique should be running as usual, accepting guests reservations for that day.  They may need to "back door" you into the location, but that is something that Disney guest services will decide the day of.  Keep in mind that there are two BBB locations, one in CRT and one in Downtown Disney, so perhaps a reservation at Downtown Disney might be more favorable crowd wise.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
