The tour times will vary. During the Candlelight period (Dec 1-20th) the parades will be earlier, thus the tours will be earlier.

I booked on Nov 1 for Dec 1. I was given only one option 10:30am.
The parade times were no listed yet but the CM said the tour always ends with parade so figured it was a 1pm parade.
The parade times are up now and it's 1pm and 3:30 for parades. Likely becaus the CP starts that day.
Used AAA and saved 20%. The only bummer is that it's non refundable and you have to prepay when you book. Hopefully everything goes as planned!

I booked on Nov 2nd for Dec 2nd. I was on the phone at 8am and still only had the 10:30 option. Maybe they were saving the second tour for those who booked the ultimate tour so it would bump up againg the time for the CP.

I just booked the holiday tour for Dec 1st. The only option is 10:30am, unless you choose the ultimate experience for $100 more per person which includes VIP seating for candlelight.

Does anyone happen to know if the early tour time is going to be the only option for the entire time CP is running, or just for the opening (invitation only) days?

If 10:30 is my only option that's going to change my plans quite a bit as I already have a lunch reservation at Carthay Circle for the same day.

Like I posted, I booked 12-3 and the only time option was 1:30.

and yes, the 8 am is Pacific time.

We're doing November 30th at 12:30! I'd have preferred the later one for the later parade but we have dining reservations at Blue Bayou, so we opted for the earlier tour/parade. Very excited about it as I've heard great things.

We had reservations for 6:30pm and changed them to 7:15 because there is nothing better than seeing that parade at night and is totally worth changing any restaurant reservations for !

Thanks to your post, I called and changed our Tour to the later one so we can see it at night! Our reservation at Blue Bayou isn't until 7 so we will be fine. Thanks again for this suggestion; I'm so excited to see the parade at night!

Also, it just dawned one me that we'll be in the same tour group! Hahaha.

Seems like maybe the super early 10:30 tour is just for Sat and Sun Dec 1&2.
Oh well.... We can finish up in DL after the parade and head over to DCA before the CP crowds come.

Does anyone know if there's any issue if the card I originally paid with for the tour is not the same as the one I show up with on the day of my tour? I've seemed to misplace my Disney debit card at the moment, and while I'll get it replaced with a new Disney debit card (if I can't find it when I get home from work), I'm worried that if I show up with a card that has a different number on it, they won't give me my tickets.

I've already been charged for the Tour, but I just thought I'd ask since they mentioned I need to bring the card I paid with. Any thoughts?

They didn't tell me to bring my CC, I will have it though.
And the card was charged in about a minute
