Disney Parks to Make New Announcement During ABC’s New Year’s Eve Broadcast
If you were watching the Disney Parks Christmas Parade earlier this week, you may have heard co-host Maria Menounos mention a new announcement that will be coming this New Year’s Eve. This Monday night, Menounos will be making a brand new Disney Parks announcement during ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2013.
This is not the first time that a Disney Parks announcement has come during ABC’s New Year’s Eve broadcast, which features the iconic ball in Times Square dropping at midnight to ring in the New Year. Last year, Disney used the broadcast to announce their “One More Disney Day” promotion, which kept both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom open for a full 24 hours on Leap Day this past February.
While it’s currently unclear what exactly this announcement will entail, Disney website Stitch Kingdom is reporting that the announcement will be for “Disney Time,” a new Disney Parks promotion. While specifics about the promotion are not yet known, Disney Time looks to either include or focus on a large sweepstakes. Be sure to stay tuned for more news on this exciting promotion once it’s officially announced.
Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2013 will air this Monday, December 31 at 8:00 PM EST on ABC.
