Happy holidays, everyone!

Who’s excited to tune in to the “Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade” this weekend? It’s set to air here on the East coast Dec. 25, at noon, and I know my family and I will be watching.

Earlier in December, our photographers attended the tapings here at the Walt Disney World Resort, and at Disneyland Resort. Check out the photo gallery below for an inside look at the fun that is in store.

And again, happy holidays!

  • Very disappointed in the parade this year. Hardly saw any of the parade since they seemed to show more of Mario and the ‘entertainment’ than they did of the actual parade. Also they seemed more interested in showing off everything else Disney has to offer. Why bother calling it a parade if you’re not going to bother showing us the parade? At least next year I’ll be at Disney in December and can see the parade for myself in person! I hate to say it but bring back KELLY! At least she showed us the parade!

  • Very Sad!! Got email saying parade on 12 to 2. Noon comes no Parade. It was on 10 to 12..very sad:(

  • With the day’s excitement, we could not turn on the television. Is it available to watch on-line somewhere??

  • We were there last year for the taping but somehow missed the parade on tv. Wish I could have seen it to see if we we photographed.

  • Cant wait to see this years parade! Wish I could be there for the actual parade some year!

  • Can’t wait!!! I love the Disney Parade. Watch it every year. It just gets better and better. We would love to be there in person one year to see it live. But watching it on tv with my granddaughter is just as good.

  • The jake and the neverland pirates costume scares me a little bit :/

  • Woo hoo! I’m in the picture of the taping of the Phineas and Ferb number. 🙂 I can’t wait to watch it Christmas Day!

  • Great pics, but I’m so mad at the photographer who took that shot of the Phineas and Ferb flash mob. Me and my girlfriend were right there on the sidewalk outside of the Blue Ribbon Bakery and Ferb is blocking me in the photo! LOL.

  • Cannot wait to see it!! Hoping my family back home will be able to see me!
