A Coast-to-Coast Christmas at Disney Parks December 25 on the ABC Television Network

For a holly jolly dose of cheer, tune in this morning, December 25, for the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade TV special on the ABC Television Network.

The 29th annual telecast takes guests on a coast-to-coast holiday celebration at the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

Some of today’s top stars join the party, with dozens of sparkling floats and a sleigh-full of Disney and Disney•Pixar characters bringing good tidings to you and your family.

Tune-in times are as follows, on the ABC Television Network (check local listings):

  • Eastern Standard Time: 10 a.m.-noon
  • Central, Mountain, Pacific Standard Time: 9-11 a.m.

The show also will air in Canada on CBC Network, and across the globe on the American Forces Network.

  • Thank You!

  • Michelle the Parade is at ABC under the watch episode section, they have the whole Parade it’s pretty “Swell” as a certin mouse would say. watch from the begining as Sophia was one of the first things. Hope this helps. Merry Christmas and have a Disney Day

  • Will the parade replay at any point, or will it be available online? Our local ABC station, KTRC in Houston, continuously interrupted the parade with weather information. We missed Mickey & Minnie, Santa, and many many floats, characters, and songs in between. No one from the station has responded to questions about whether they will replay the parade, and I have not been able to find it online. My children were very disappointed this morning. I was most looking forward to my 5 year old daughter’s reaction to seeing Princess Sofia; I am glad that I didn’t mention that we would see her, since her appearance was apparently during one of the many interruptions.

  • The Parade was fantastic as usual!! Spotted myself several times, even spotted your name in the credits Gary!

  • The Parade was Spectacular, and filled with tons of magical Holiday Cheer!!!!:)

  • The parade was spectacular. It made me so “homesick”! I need to get back to Disney World!

  • Outside of the slightly over used applause track, we LOVED it! Great addition to our Christmas morning. We were at Disney World during the tapping but the crowds were a bit much for us so we worked around it. It was great to enjoy it all from the comfort of our living room!

    Great to see Toby Mac, Newsies and the Yolanda Adams ending was AWESOME! Merry Christmas!
