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?
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?
