The logo for the 2014 parade, retitled as "Disney Parks' Frozen Christmas Celebration".

The Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade (now officially known as Disney Parks Magical Christmas Celebration since 2016) is an American television special that airs on Christmas Day on ABC, taped primarily inside Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, and in 2009, added parades from Disneyland in Anaheim, California, taped about three weeks prior to Christmas Day. Past shows have included segments featuring other Disney theme parks around the world. The program has aired annually since 1983, with the exception of 2000 when Disney aired a Christmas Eve "Tracking Santa" special instead. In 1999, a nighttime version of the parade was shown on Christmas Day. In the 1980s through 2008, the program was known as The Walt Disney World Very Merry Christmas Parade or the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade.

The parades down Main Street, U.S.A. features appearances of Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Pluto, Scrooge McDuck, and Chip 'n' Dale, as well as floats featuring celebrities, musical performances, marching bands from various schools and community groups across the USA, and highlights of events and properties at Disney theme parks and other Disney productions. Most of the program is taped in November and early December for broadcast on Christmas Day. However, until the early 1990s, the parade was broadcast live on Christmas Day. For the 2014 edition, the program was rethemed as the Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration, and included performances from Aulani Resort in Hawaii. In 2015, it was renamed as Disney Parks Unforgettable Christmas Celebration, and finally Disney Parks Magical Christmas Celebration since 2016 and in 2017, it returned with the same name.
