Magic Kingdom Disney Parks Christmas Parade Taping Including Phineas and Ferb, Epcot Germany Pavilion Update – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

It was a beautiful day on Saturday for the last day of the Disney Parks Christmas Parade taping. Cinderella Castle looked beautiful (below, left). We didn’t show up until 11:30 in the morning, and had missed several of the acts – but what we saw was just enough this year. Cast member Billy Flanagan (below, right) was back to entertain guests in between takes.

The sign announcing the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade (below, left) was in the hub. Maria Menounos (below, right) kept busy as well, reading lines off a teleprompter (she announced each guest that performed at the castle stage).

Darius Rucker (below, left) had just finished up when we arrived. Singer Sean Kingston waves to the crowds before singing “This Christmas” (below, right).

Maria Menounos welcomes Sean Kingston to the stage (below, left). Kingston sings with one of his backup dancers in the background (below, right).

Video #1 – Sean Kingston, “This Christmas” Disney Christmas Parade Taping December 4th, 2010 – Sean Kingston sings “This Christmas” for the Disney Parks parade taping.

Radio Disney’s Jake Whetter (below, left) broadcasts his show in the Rose Garden. Phineas and Ferb (below, right) wave to guests as they finish taping for the parade.

Phineas waves to the camera (below, right). Phineas and Ferb had done some promo spots before heading backstage (below, right). They always draw a lot of interest when in the parks (we saw them last year at this time as well – video HERE).

Video #2 – Phineas and Ferb at the Magic Kingdom, December 4th, 2010 – Phineas and Ferb visited the Magic Kingdom for the Disney Parks parade. Hopefully we’ll eventually see them in the parks more regularly!

Walt and Mickey look on as the parade taping finishes up (below, left). Maria Menounos (below, right) stands on the castle stage after all the extras had been dismissed, reading a few more lines for the camera.

The flag pole had been moved for the parade taping (below, left), allowing for a direct view down Main Street USA (below, right) – garland had been removed temporarily as well.

Video #3 – Magic Kingdom View Down Main Street with Flagpole Moved December 4th, 2010 – The flagpole was moved from Town Square due to the parade taping – the Christmas tree will be there in the next day or two. The garland was also removed for the parade taping.

The huge Mickey shaped wreath on the Contemporary Resort was in view as we walked to the resort after the taping (below, left).  The tree out front looks beautiful (below, right).

We made a stop at Epcot for “Passholder Appreciation Days” to get our free caramel popcorn sample at Karamelle-Kuche in Germany (below, left). We first went to see Helga, the holiday storyteller at the Germany stage. A large nutcracker and Christmas tree are on the stage where she performs (below, right).

Helga demonstrates how the Nutcracker is used to crack a nut (below, left). A life-size Nutcracker soon comes to visit with guests (below, right).

Video #4 – Epcot Holiday Storyteller Helga from Germany December 4th, 2010 – Helga tells the story of Christmas in Germany, Epcot’s World Showcase.

A gingerbread house is inside the Karamelle-Kuche shop (below, left). Our free sample of popcorn was a really nice size! (below, right). Passholder Appreciation Days are from December 4th-11th, 2010 at Epcot.
