First of all, Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate! Today is the 30th Annual running of the holiday special we have come to know as the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade.
How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting the festivities from the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, while America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon, who hosted last year’s Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, will be hosting the fun at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Lara Spencer, co-anchor of Good Morning America, will be the show’s special correspondent.
In addition to all of your favorite Disney characters like Mickey & Minnie, along with their pal Duffy the Disney Bear, Donald & Daisy, the Disney Princesses, and so many more, we will have plenty of star-studded performances.
At the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando we will have Grammy Award Winner Ne-Yo, English-Irish boy band The Wanted, the Italian vocal trio known as Il Volo, and Candice Glover, the winner of American Idol Season 12.
At “The Happiest Place on Earth”, the Disneyland Resort in California, we will see Grammy Award Winning R&B queen Mary J. Blige, who will be performing songs from her new album “A Mary Christmas”, a duet between American Idol Season 6 winner Jordin Sparks and her boyfriend, R&B superstar Jason Derulo, Disney Channel alum Demi Lovato, the cast of the Disney Channel original movie Teen Beach Movie, and Dove Cameron, star of the Disney Channel original series Liv and Maddie.
So after you are done opening presents with your family, because we all know the little ones are going to be up as soon as the sun rises, gather around the television, get settled in on the couch, and watch the fun with the entire family.
