How To Watch the Christmas Day Parade on TV in 2023
We tell you how to watch the 2023 Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade on live TV via cable TV, streaming services, and OTA antennas.
What is the 2023 Disney Parks Magical Christmas Parade?
ABC filmed two annual holiday specials, The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration and the 40th annual Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Parade, live at the Walt Disney World Resort. The former aired on Thanksgiving weekend, while the Christmas parade airs on ABC on Monday, December 25 at 10 a.m. Eastern, then streams next-day on Hulu and Disney+.
“Wonderful World” hosts Derek and Julianne Hough also host the Magical Christmas Parade, with support from two co-hosts, country singer Mickey Guyton and The Bachelor/The Golden Bachelor host Jesse Palmer.
In addition to appearances from iconic Disney characters, the two-hour program features performances from the Houghs, Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), Iam Tongi (American Idol), Meg Donnelly (The Winchesters), the Broadway and North American touring casts of Disney’s Aladdin, and The Smashing Pumpkins (performing a new original holiday tune, “Evergreen”).
How to stream the Christmas parade live in 2023
The same goes for live TV streaming services—most of them have your local ABC affiliate.
How to watch the Christmas Parade free in 2023
Christmas can drain your wallet, but don’t worry—you can watch the Christmas parade free (or close to free) with streaming service free trials or an affordable over-the-air (OTA) TV antenna.
Live TV streaming service free trials
There is no shame in signing up for a free trial, watching the Christmas parade, and then canceling—before the trial ends—so you pay nothing.
To watch the Christmas parade live by exploiting free trials, try YouTube TV because, if you decide to keep the service after the 7-day trial, you’ll get it for $50.99 monthly (that’s $22 off, a 30% discount) for three months.
To watch the Christmas parade on demand, we recommend the ad-free version of Hulu, which has a 30-day trial.
