THE 31ST ANNUAL DISNEY PARKS CHRISTMAS DAY SPECIAL GETS A FROZEN MAKEOVER!

TUNE IN FOR THE STAR-STUDDED SPECTACULAR DECEMBER 25 ON ABC

GMA's Robin Roberts Hosts This Year's "Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration" with Performances by Train, Ariana Grande, Lucy Hale, Trisha Yearwood and More

This holiday season, Disney will put a "Frozen" twist on its 31st annual Christmas Day telecast, appropriately renamed the "Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration," airing Christmas morning THURSDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2014 (10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., ET; airtimes vary; check local listings in your market) on the ABC Television Network. Robin Roberts, co-anchor of ABC's "Good Morning America," will host the reimagined television special inspired by the blockbuster hit's message of uniting family and loved ones. Roberts will lead the telecast from Walt Disney World Resort in Florida with support from Tim Tebow, GMA Contributor and ESPN and SEC Network analyst.

They will be joined by Rob Marciano, senior meteorologist of ABC's "Good Morning America," from the "The Happiest Place on Earth" at Disneyland Resort. Sarah Hyland, star of ABC's Emmy award-winning show "Modern Family," joins the fun from Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii. The festivities will also feature a special appearance by Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev, making this year's Christmas special a magical "Frozen" celebration not to be missed.

Disney Parks will celebrate this Christmas with more than a parade, but with a heartfelt wish for the holiday season, the coming together of loved ones and family. In keeping with the spirit of "Frozen," where two sisters are united through the power of true love, Disney will bring together three groups of families and friends who have been apart or separated for the holidays, providing the ultimate Christmas gift. The reunions will take place at three magical Disney destinations - Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and Aulani - making these reunions bigger, brighter and merrier.

The joyous occasion will fittingly include a special rendition of the "Frozen" hit single, "Let It Go," as performed by 12-year-old YouTube sensation, Lexi Walker.

There will also be festive performances from some of today's top musical talents at each of the various Disney locations:

· Ariana Grande will regale Walt Disney World Resort guests with her new Christmas single "Santa Tell Me" and the Christmas tradition "Last Christmas"

· Prince Royce adds to the merriment with "I Want to Wish You a Merry Christmas/Feliz Navidad"

· The spotlight also will shine on special performances from the X Factor USA third and final season winners Alex and Sierra singing "Love is an Open Door" from "Frozen"

· Yuletide cheer will be brought to the Hawaiian Islands by Gavin DeGraw, performing his latest single "Fire" and the holiday standard "I'll Be Home for Christmas"

· Laura Marano, of Disney Channel's "Austin & Ally," entertains viewers with her version of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" as posed by Princess Anna in "Frozen"

· Trey Songz, Lucy Hale and Train will serenade audiences at Disneyland Resort in California with holiday favorites such as "All I Want for Christmas is You," "Mistletoe," and "Shake Up Christmas"

· Country music superstar Trisha Yearwood will perform her hit single, "Prizefighter," and the holiday classic, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas"

Guests are encouraged to visit disney.com/disneyparkschristmas for details on the telecast, local broadcast times and talent updates. Guests can also join the conservation online using the hashtag #DisneyParade.
