The Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade Airs on ABC December 25th!

It is hard to believe that we are only two days away from Christmas. If you want to bring a little bit of Disney Magic to your own home, you can watch the Christmas parade on ABC. Gabriel Gibaldi shared more with Disney Parks Blog.


It’s almost time for one of our favorite holiday traditions! I know I can’t wait to cozy up to the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa when the “Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade” airs Christmas Morning on ABC at 10 a.m. ET and 9 a.m. CT/PT. It begins streaming the next day on Hulu.

Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will sparkle with holiday cheer and incredible musical performances, heartwarming moments and special looks, including an enchanting behind-the-scenes peek at Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish. As part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration, commemorating 50 years of Walt Disney World Resort, every touch of holiday magic will be an extra special, EARidescent treat.

Comedian Kevin Nealon plays the role of KEVIN WINTERBEAN, also known as The Christmas Day Guy. His job is to answer any and all questions relating to Christmas Day. Throughout the Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade, we will check in with the Christmas Day Guy.
