This weekend, we completed some segments at the Disneyland Resort for the 2011 Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, and here is a preview of what to expect this year on the ABC broadcast that has become a family tradition.

Nick Cannon with Phineas & Ferb at Disneyland Park

First, it was great to have proud new papa, Nick Cannon, back hosting at Disneyland park this year. Nick posed for this Ferb-tastic photo following Phineas and Ferb’s big “Gitchee Gitchee Goo” number on Main Street, U.S.A.,
