As Santa starts loading his sleigh this week, the countdown is also on for the “Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade” telecast, airing Dec. 25 on ABC-TV. The annual holiday special is a tradition in many households, including ours, as both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort deck the halls in a big way. This year, there will be a lot of rockin’ around the Christmas tree with appearances and performances by stars including Mariah Carey, Ryan Seacrest, Nick Cannon, Selena Gomez, pro dancers from “Dancing With the Stars,” Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Amber Riley, Darius Rucker, Debby Ryan, Jackie Evancho, Sean Kingston, Lee DeWyze, Maria Menounos and Samantha Brown.
And, there are even more ways to get involved with the festivities. Disney Online just launched Disney.com/ChristmasParade – an online stocking stuffed with a treasure trove of videos, celebrity interviews and behind-the-scenes segments. Also, fans are invited to join our parade mobile text alert program to get more fun info. You can sign up now by texting PARADE to 37275 (DPARK).*
