This Week On TouringPlans YouTube Channel: Christmas Fantasy Parade, Newsboys, Hillbillies and More!
by Guy Selga Jr. on December 20, 2013
Every Friday on the TouringPlans Blog we bring you the week’s newest videos from our YouTube channel. Let’s get started!
One of the most popular holiday offerings in Disneyland is A Christmas Fantasy Parade. The parade has been around since 1994, and most of my favorite characters (Scrooge McDuck, Roger Rabbit, and Mulan) have been removed, but overall it’s still a great parade. Enjoy this full HD recording.
Heading over to Disney California Adventure, one of the highlights of the holiday celebrations in that park is the tree lighting ceremony on Buena Vista Street. The small show features the Citizens of Buena Vista Street, Buena Vista Street Community Bell Ringers, Mickey, and Pluto.
More videos after the jump:
One of the greatest features of it’s a small world’s legendary facade is the clock tower. Here is a video of clock going off, lit with hundreds of Christmas lights!
Billy Hill and the Hillbillies are well loved here at TouringPlans. It’s unfortunate, because now they are down to a handful of performances until their show is permanently retired. Luckily they will live on via YouTube with videos like this. Enjoy the finale of the Hillbillies Christmas show featuring the Country Bears!
A new episode of the Unofficial Guide Disney Dish Podcast! Len Testa and Jim Hill discuss the history of how Disneyland has celebrated Christmas throughout the years. Download the MP3 here, iTunes link here.
I’m obviously a bit biased, but I think this series of Ask Jim Hill videos where the guys discuss vintage Disney merchandise has been really interesting! In this mega-sized 17 minute episode we wrap up the 3-part special edition of Ask Jim Hill, as Len and Jim take a look at memorabilia and share stories about Fantasmic!, Disney Pogs, Videopolis, and more!
That’s all for this week. We add new videos to the channel several times a week. Be sure to head to http://youtube.com/touringplans and subscribe!
