Guests at Magic Kingdom are likely to spot a celebrity or two over the next couple of days as taping for the annual Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade is underway.
Thursday, crews taped segments during the afternoon parade. Debby Ryan, who plays Bailey on “The Suite Life on Deck,” danced while performing “Deck the Halls” for the eager crowd. Ryan’s recording of the popular Christmas song is featured on the current direct-to-DVD Disney release, “The Search for Santa Paws.”
A Disney spokeperson also confirmed that Mariah Carey will be performing as well, and that Ryan Seacrest is hosting this year’s parade, which will air Christmas Day on ABC at 12 noon.
Segments from Disneyland Resort, including a performance of the classic “Winter Wonderland” by Selena Gomez, were also taped last month in anticipation of the holiday special.
