    I read the post about the 2008 Christmas Day Parade taping dates and I'm concerned - it looks like the taping will likely happen during my family's (me, H, S12, S10, D6) first visit to WDW! What impact might the taping have on our plans?

    Hi Kathy,

    This should not impact your vacation at all.  I was there for the taping last December "2008" and the only places that seemed the most crowded were at the actual spots of taping.  When they taped Regis and Kelly just inside the main gates on Main Street U.S.A. (in front of the train station)...that particular spot was crowded a bit with onlookers wanting to get in on the action and when they taped the cast from "dancing with the stars" and all the performers who were singing, etc... in front of Cinderella's Castle....this particular area also seemed crowded, but if you veered a little bit away from the action then the crowds diminished quite quickly.  It was fun to stand and watch for a little while and then we enjoyed our attractions as we normally would with no problems whatsoever!  Have a magical trip!

    Best wishes,
