This year’s Christmas special has segments from Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., outside Orlando; Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.; and Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olino, Hawaii; and was partly taped in November and this week. All floats featured in the show are coming down Main Street, U.S.A. during the 31st Annual Disney Parks Christmas Day Celebration and Parade at Walt Disney Resort’s Magic Kingdom park , Disney spokesman George Savvas said.
It is co-hosted by Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” and Tim Tebow, a “Good Morning America” contributor and ESPN and SEC Network analyst. Also part of the broadcast are Sarah Hyland, co-star of ABC’s “Modern Family,” and Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev.
