Disney Singalong Return and “Reimagined” Disney Parks Special Highlight ABC Holiday Programming Lineup

ABC is getting into the yuletide spirit, announcing its slate of holiday programming that includes the return of The Disney Family Singalong franchise, with new special The Disney Holiday Singalong. It’s set to air Monday, November 30 at 8 PM.

The Singalong franchise has been a strong ratings driver for the network. Earlier this year, The Disney Family Singalong and The Disney Family Singalong: Volume II drew in a combined 22.3 million Total Viewers after 35 days of delayed viewing on linear and digital platforms. Performers and additional details for The Disney Holiday Singalong will be announced in the coming weeks.

Also on tap is a “reimagined” Disney Parks Magical Christmas Day Celebration, set for Friday, December 25. The special is still in the planning process but it’s expected to be a mix of highlights through the years, along with some new elements, per ABC.
