‘Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade’ Airs December 25 on ABC

The 30th annual Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade special is set to air on Christmas Day on ABC.

Neil Patrick Harris has hosting duties from the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and will be joined by Nick Cannon from Disneyland Resort. ABC's Good Morning America co-anchor Lara Spencer joins the duo as the show's special correspondent.

The holiday special features Disneyland-based performances by Mary J. Blige, Jordan Sparks and Jason Derulo, in addition to a special performance by Demi Lovato, the cast of Disney Channel's Teen Beach Movie, and Dove Cameron.

Meanwhile from the Walt Disney World Resort, Ne-Yo will be performing his hit "Let Me Love You." The boy band The Wanted, Italian vocal trio Il Volo, and American Idol Season 12 champion Candice Glover will also be performing.

Of course a parade isn't a real parade without floats and this year's floats feature Mickey and Minnie on a Christmas tree float with Duffy the Disney Bear, Elsa and Anna from Frozen joining the royal court, Belle and Beast accompanied in the royal procession by the other Disney Princesses and their princes, Donald and Daisy joined by ice skaters, Tinker Bell and Peter Pan, Toy Story stars, and of course Santa Claus.

The Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade airs at 10 a.m. ET, 9 a.m. CST, MST, and PST on ABC-TV on Christmas morning.
