The Disney theme parks have special places in the lives of many people, and Maria Menounos is one of them.
That's why the "Extra" co-host and "Dancing With the Stars" alum is glad to help cover a holiday viewing tradition again this year. The Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade has its annual airing on Disney-owned ABC on Tuesday, Dec. 25, and Menounos will join her fellow "Extra" anchor Mario Lopez and "America's Got Talent" host (and Mariah Carey spouse) Nick Cannon in bringing the festivities home.
"When I was about 8, my parents took us to Disney World," Menounos tells Zap2it. "We used to clean nightclubs in Boston, and we'd save money in empty helium tanks. My dad would saw a little sliver in, then we'd put the money in, but couldn't get it out ... so we saved to go to Disney World, and we had such a great time.
