A Christmas Morning Tradition Sprinkled with Some Pixie Dust
One of our families favorite holiday traditions is gathering together to watch the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. It’s been a Disney Parks tradition for nearly 30 years and since we've been married 36 years, it's been ours as well. We got our Disney holiday fix in those early years with plenty of Disney gifts and decorations around the house and on the tree.
There are musical acts, favorite Disney characters and sparkling parade floats in a cavalcade down Main Street, U.S.A. at both Disneyland park and the Magic Kingdom park.
