It’s the most wonderful time of the year! In our household, it is always a tradition to pop on the Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade while opening gifts on Christmas morning.

Well, this year, Derek and Julianne Hough will host the Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade from Walt Disney World Resort, while Freeform’s Trevor Jackson (grown-ish) and Sherry Cola (Good Trouble) will host from the Disneyland Resort.

But it seems Christmas came a bit early this year as Disney has just shared a sneak peek at what we can expect from this year’s parade!
