  • The family and I was at Disney World on one of taping days (Nov. 7th) I felt it was very interesting how it was taped.

    Now I’m searching for a way to watch this on the TV vs online. Our recording was erased. I couldn’t find anything on VOD.

  • Will this be aired again – we had company and missed it !!

  • We missed it! Please replay.. The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration on the Disney Channel or another source.

  • When did they film the Magical Holiday celebration??

  • I missed the show and wanted to watch with my Grandson..will it be shown again or is it on demand somewhere?

  • Our recording did not work and we are desperately searching for a replay! Where can it be found?

  • First time ever my 3 granddaughters lost interest in Disney. Ages 4-7. Dropped the ball. Too much like adult concert than Walts dream of family. It’s a shame that they waited all day, only to lose interest 15 minutes into the show

  • Will this air again?

  • cant wait!

  • Yes Mariah Carey will be for this event.

  • I was down at Disney world while they filmed the whole week it was a great add on to,my vacation made magic kingdom a lot more crowded tbough

  • Is this taking the place of the Christmas Parade that airs on Christmas morning? I really hope not.

  • Last night at Disneyland as they filmed Mariah Carey performing in front of It’s A Small World they said it was also going to be a part of the Thanksgiving Day special on ABC, but I don’t see her listed. Will Mariah be part of Thanksgiving or the Christmas Day special?

  • Will the Christmas parade still air on Christmas?
