Plot Synopsis

Each year since 1983 -- except in 2000 -- ABC has broadcast a Disney-themed Christmas Day parade from inside Walt Disney World Resort's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, FL.

On Christmas Day 2020 (Friday, December 25) from 10am-Noon ET / 9-11am CT/MT/PT, ABC premiered the "The Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade," a two-hour event hosted by Tituss Burgess and Julianne Hough. This year's iteration features merry musical performances by some of today's hottest artists creating spectacular moments in exciting locations around the Parks, laugh-out-loud moments from Keegan-Michael Key, fun social moments with master TikTok creator Alex Ojeda, heartwarming family stories, Disney Cast Member highlights, a look into Disney Dreamers Academy and more festive surprises. Performances include:
Hosts Tituss Burgess and Julianne Hough -- "It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year"
Becky G -- "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" and "Feliz Navidad"
Florida A&M University Gospel Choir -- "Joy to the World"
Jon Batiste -- "It's All Right" from "Soul" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
Keedron Bryant with the Florida A&M University Gospel Choir -- "Someday at Christmas"
Maddie & Tae -- "Holly Jolly Christmas" and "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"
Tituss Burgess -- "This Christmas"
Tori Kelly with the Florida A&M University Gospel Choir -- "Let It Snow"
Trevor Jackson -- "The Christmas Song"

Of course, no Disney Parks special would be complete without special appearances from familiar Disney characters, who can be counted on to pop up in performances in ways you've never seen before.

Viewers are also be treated to sneak peeks of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, coming in 2021 to EPCOT in Florida; Marvel Studios' WANDAVISION, a Disney+ original series streaming Jan. 15; plus, a special look at and performance featuring music from Disney and Pixar's upcoming feature film, SOUL, available on Disney+ Dec. 25.
