It is taped primarily inside the Magic Kingdom theme park at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, approximately one month prior to Christmas day. This article is about the Theme park at Walt Disney World Resort.

Past shows have included segments featuring other Disney theme parks in Orlando, Florida, Anaheim, California, and around the world. The program has aired annually since 1983, with the exception of 2000 when Disney aired a Christmas Eve "Tracking Santa" special instead. In 1999, a nighttime version of the parade was shown on Christmas Day. In the 1980s and '90s, the program was known as The Walt Disney World Very Merry Christmas Parade.
The parade down Main Street, U.S.A. features appearances of Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Pluto, and Chip 'n Dale, as well as floats featuring celebrities, musical performances, and highlights of events and properties at Disney theme parks and other Disney productions.

Donald Duck is a cartoon character from The Walt Disney Company. Pluto (formerly known as Pluto the Pup) is an Animated cartoon character made famous in a series of Disney short cartoons. Chip 'n' Dale are two animated Chipmunks created by The Walt Disney Company. Despite its now-traditional viewing status, the program could be considered to just be a giant advertising vehicle for The Walt Disney Company, being televised on a Disney-owned outlet, making the parade tradition a textbook example of fakelore. Fakelore is inauthentic manufactured Folklore presented as if it were genuinely Traditional. Most of the program is taped in November and early December for broadcast on Christmas Day. However, until the early 1990s, the parade was broadcast live on Christmas Day, usually on CBS, with whom Disney had partnered for Thanksgiving and New Year celebrations as well, until Disney bought out ABC in 1996.
