The Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade airs Dec. 25, 10 a.m.-Noon Eastern time on ABC-TV.
A Dec. 25 tradition, The Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade again brings the magic of Walt Disney World Resort at holidaytime into the homes of millions of ABC-TV viewers. Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa host the festivities, which feature a variety of celebrity appearances and musical performances.
Front and center is the parade itself, which showcases favorite Disney characters as it makes its way down Main Street, U.S.A. This year’s program will feature parade elements from both Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland in California – a fitting tribute during the “Happiest Celebration on Earth” honoring 50 years of Disney parks that began with the opening of Disneyland.
