In another promotional stint for the upcoming classic, "Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!," Phineas and Ferb are set to be apart of the "Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade" on December 25, Christmas day. Costumed versions of Phineas and Ferb are set to appear on a float, waving to guests, though no confirmation has been made as to whether Candace and Perry will appear alongside them. Tapping for the parade has already commenced and it will be broadcast worldwide on Disney's cable network, ABC.
This is just one of many ways Disney is promoting the new special. On November 27, Radio Disney will stream all seven of the special's musical numbers, which will be performed by the Phineas and Ferb cast members and swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy; the following day, iTunes will release the songs for download. On December 6, Disney XD will effectively air the episode itself, followed by an immediate repeat. Disney Channel SVOD, Disney XD VOD, Disney XD Mobile, iTunes, and Xbox Live Marketplace will open up the episode for digital retail on the following day. It doesn't end there — Disney Channel will broadcast the episode on December 11, following a six-hour-long marathon of the show. December 12 will see the official release of the episode on DisneyChannel.com and DisneyXD.com and, finally, December 18, ABC Family will air the special as part of its "25 Days of Christmas" month-long event, marking the first appearance of the show on the network.
Concluding the promotion will be, of course, the parade on Christmas day. Be sure to check it out as Phineas and Ferb march down Disneyland alongside the whole Disney family!
