After a couple of days delay, the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade television taping finished up yesterday at the Magic Kingdom. We brought you photos from the first day of recordings featuring Yanni and Kris Allen last Thursday, and the tapings were to continue the next two days, but Mother Nature had other ideas with constant rain.
On Friday, Celine Dion’s performance was moved to the Grand Floridian Resort, where she had fans packing all of the balconies. (Click here for more photos of her performance, courtesy of Robert Ashburn.)
On Sunday morning the show went on with a performance by the Jonas Brothers around Cinderella Castle. We weren’t able to make it to the park that early, but you can read more about it at The Daily Disney. The audience were taught some dance moves, as you can see in the video below.
The Main Street portion of the parade started in the early afternoon. It was slow going as most floats or parade performers came down the street one at a time. Most stopped to perform, sometimes more than once so all the cameras could capture just the right shots. Here’s an iPhone video I shot of Mickey and his pals dancing in the street with park guests.
Our full photo gallery of photos from yesterday’s television taping is below. The full parade can be seen on the ABC network Christmas Day.
