Today Disneyland was a buzz as the park was filled with the Christmas spirit for the recording of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. Things got started with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy performing Christmas is Starting Now in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. He was joined by Kim Johnson and Louis Van Amstel from Dancing with the Stars for the performance of this song from Phineas and Ferb. †They were followed by Selena Gomez who sang Winter Wonderland. Nick Cannon acted as the MC and filming finished at the castle with a bunch of Disney characters joining him.
Once the filming was finished in front of the castle, the crew and Nick Cannon moved to Main Street where A Christmas Fantasy parade was then filmed, with a few extras added in. With characters, bands, dancers, and more, the filming of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade made for a wonderfully festive day for all who attended! This will be on ABC on Christmas Day for all to enjoy. Watch and see if you can find Mr. DAPs and then post it here if you see him!
Make it a GREAT day!
