Last week when I visited Magic Kingdom, I noticed that cast members were in the middle of building a playground of sorts on the Cinderella Castle stage. I wasn't sure what they were for, but the only logical thing I could think of was that the structure would be used for some filming.
Fast forward to today when Disney Channel announced three all-new holiday specials that will air in December.
There are three specials coming:
- Disney Holiday Magic Quest – a one-hour high-stakes adventure that will follow stars from ZOMBIES 2 throughout the Magic Kingdom.
Raven-Symoné virtually hosts the challenge, which features ZOMBIES 2 stars Milo Manheim, Kylee Russell, Ariel Martin, and Pearce Joza competing in a holiday adventure through Magic Kingdom Park. After iconic Disney villains Maleficent and Evil Queen steal holiday magic, the stars must overcome obstacles and complete challenges to restore the joy of the season. The challenges take place throughout Magic Kingdom Park and include iconic attractions and locations like Haunted Mansion and Cinderella Castle. The four stars are also competing for a grand prize that will benefit Toys for Tots, a nonprofit organization that delivers hope and the magic of the holidays to less fortunate children.
- Disney Channel Holiday House Party – details to come
- Challenge Accepted! Disney Channel's Epic Holiday Showdown – details to come
Disney Holiday Magic Quest is set to premiere on Friday, December 4th on Disney Channel at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT and DisneyNOW.
