Do you need to have a ticket to get into Magic Kingdom to see the filming of the show that will air on Christmas Day?

The Christmas parade is a separate ticket event and filming starts early in the morning before the parks open. I took my sons one year and we stood for 2 hours before they started filming anything. The kids got bored and we left. As a warning, the Magic Kingdom is extremely crowded on filming day. If you don’t like crowds, you should definitely avoid it.
