Celebrate Christmas in July

Welcome to Christmas in July from RetroWDW! To celebrate, today we have three videos from our archives to share.

First, from Walt Disney World in 1978, is this TV special featuring Shields & Yarnell making their way from Los Angeles to Orlando for a visit to Walt Disney World. A performance by band Pablo Cruise on Bay Lake follows and appearances by Phyllis Diller, Andrea McArdle, and Danielle Spencer are made in this one hour special.


Next, we fast forward to 1987 and head to Disneyland in California for a Christmas Candlelight Ceremony narrated by Howard Keel. Aired on the Disney Channel and later released on VHS, this is better known today as the Candlelight Processional.


Since we are already visiting Disneyland, here’s a live performance of the Nutcracker featuring Mickey Mouse from 1992!


We hope you’ve enjoyed our Christmas in July videos! Coming in early August, our next video releases will be from the Crescent Lake resort area in Walt Disney World.
