Other stars that will be performing at the annual parade at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort include Disney Pearl Series recording artists Nathan Pacheco and Katharine Jenkins, who will perform their rendition of “O Holy Night.” Statler and Waldorf, those famous Muppets characters, will also be offering up commentary from the sidelines at The Magic Kingdom, while The Never Land Pirate Band will make their parade debut with a special pirate-themed holiday song.
While the parade will showcase plenty of celebrity talent, the show wouldn’t be complete without appearances from your favorite Disney characters. Phineas and Ferb will make an appearance and perform their show’s hit song “Gitchee Gitchee Goo,” while Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will make a grand entrance on a Christmas tree-shaped float.
The Disney Princesses Cinderella, Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White will also parade down Main Street, U.S.A. with their men in tow, while Toy Story favorites Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jesse will also make an appearance. The parade will culminate with a very special visit from Santa Claus as his reindeer pull his sleigh down Main Street, U.S.A. in a grand finale.
