I remember watching the wonderful Disney parades on TV for Easter and Christmas. I don’t know about you, but doesn’t it seem that the parades of today are somewhat less grand than those they ran in the past?

Co-hosts Regis Philbin, Kelly Ripa (Live with Regis & Kelly) and Ryan Seacrest (Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2007) will bring the magic of the Disney Parks to viewers nationwide as Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade airs, Monday, December 25 (10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., ET; 9:00-11:00 a.m., CT, MT, PT; check local listings).
