Many families tune in Christmas morning to watch the annual Disney Parks Christmas Special, also known as the Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Celebration, on ABC every year as they watch incredible musical numbers and the iconic Christmas Day parade. However, for 2020, Disney has already confirmed this year’s special would be reimagined due to the current pandemic.

Well, we have some exciting news regarding this year’s Christmas special as Disney Parks took to Twitter to confirm that filming has officially kicked off for the Disney Christmas Celebration at Walt Disney World, which will be hosted by Tituss Burgess.

Disney Parks also confirmed that Trevor Jackson will be performing on the Disney Christmas Celebration, which will air on ABC on the morning of Christmas Day.

And now, thanks to Disney fans on Twitter, we are seeing some of this filming taking place this morning! The DVC Duo snapped this photo, which is located near Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom, showing that Disney is currently filming for the upcoming Christmas Day special!

And yesterday, Disney Annual Passholder, Rick, was inside Magic Kingdom and snapped this photo, who looks to be country music duo Maddie and Tae!
