Disney Channel Holiday Specials Details:
“Disney Holiday Magic Quest” (Friday, Dec. 4, at 8:00 p.m. EST/PST), virtually hosted by Raven-Symoné, features multitalented “ZOMBIES 2” stars Milo Manheim, Kylee Russell, Ariel Martin and Pearce Joza competing in a high-stakes, holiday adventure inside Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort after dark. The stars will navigate a series of challenges and obstacles through iconic Disney attractions, including the Haunted Mansion and Cinderella Castle, in an attempt to restore the holiday magic that was stolen by famed Disney villains Maleficent and Evil Queen. As stars compete for the grand prize, proceeds will be donated to Toys for Tots, a nonprofit organization that delivers hope and the magic of the holidays to less fortunate children.
“Challenge Accepted! Disney Channel’s Epic Holiday Showdown” (Sunday, Dec. 6, at 7:00 p.m. EST/PST) centers around Santa and Mrs. Claus, played by “Entertainment Tonight’s” Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner, respectively, as they enlist the help of Disney Channel stars to save the holidays from Ebenezer Scrooge (“Raven’s Home” star Anneliese van der Pol). The stars will take on a series of zany holiday-themed challenges to lift her evil curse on Christmas. The special will include a performance by “ZOMBIES 2” star Meg Donnelly with one lucky fan, and a show-stopping number by global pop group “Now United.” Also starring Milo Manheim, Chandler Kinney, Trevor Tordjman, Kylee Russell, Issac Ryan Brown, Navia Robinson, Sky Katz, Jason Maybaum, Mallory Mahoney, Raphael Alejandro, Will Buie Jr., Christian J.
