It’s not your average day at Disneyland Park when Stevie Wonder performs “That’s What Christmas Means to Me “in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle. Here’s a photo of Minnie Mouse, Stevie and his daughter Aisha Morris during a break from taping.

Stevie Wonder and Anika Noni Rose were both performing at Disneyland park today for the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade.

Anika was seen performing a musical production number inspired by “Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee” for the annual holiday special that appears on ABC. While singing and dancing in New Orleans Square, Anika encountered “Dancing with the Stars” celebs, Cheryl Burke and Tony Dovolani.

I just can’t wait to see the parade this year!! You’re not going to believe it but I still have the parade from last year on our DVR so we can watch it from after Thanksgiving until it’s time for the new one to air! I am so in love with the magic of Disney…especially at Christmas time!! <3<3<3

I was at the park Friday and Saturday for my birthday! I wish I had stayed for the taping on Sunday.

Disney Land is always such a special place but having Stevie Wonder there to sing at Christmastime makes it extra special! I’m looking forward to seeing the show when it airs!

Do they tape the whole thing this early or just parts of it?

How wonderful! I love Disneyland but have never been there at Christmastime. We are surprising our children with a trip there this Christmas. So excited!
