Special Blog Post: Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade

One of my favorite things to do on Christmas morning is to watch the Disney Christmas Parade.  It's been a tradtion for me since I was a little girl.  (Although technically, I remember the Easter Parade WAY more than the Christmas one.  I still have tapes with the Easter parade...though not as many as I used to have...there was a time when I wasn't as big of a Disney fan as I am now and I *gasp* taped over the parade tapes thinking "when am I gonna want to watch this again?") 

With the new parade coming up this Christmas Day with lots of new excitement for our viewing enjoyment, Disney has been doing something a little extra to ramp up the energy for this year's parade.

The countdown to the 2010 “Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade” on ABC-TV has begun!   Disney Online launched today a dedicated online destination on ( for the annual holiday special, featuring behind-the-scenes and performance videos of Selena Gomez and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, as well as interviews with Debby Ryan, Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon and Ryan Seacrest.  The site also includes television tune-in information, the parade telecast schedule, a Disney-themed holiday gift guide and great ideas for holiday recipes and crafts the whole family can enjoy.

I know I'll be excited to see the exclusive interview with Ryan Seacrest!  (The man is my idol...literally...not like in the American Idol kind of way...).  I also really enjoyed the parade photo gallery!  There are some really great pics there!
