My guess is an announcement to the general population (aka non-disers) about Limited Time Magic! Or..... Avatar land :-/

If there's any announcement at all, it will be to promote Disney's 2013 marketing initiative, Limited Time Magic.

Every year, Disney fans are excited by reports of upcoming marketing events or New Year advertisements. Then, every year, the same fans are disappointed when the it's just the launch of the marketing hype for the coming year.

Announcements of new or enhanced Disney attractions are made in the business press and on the Disney Parks Blog. There's no reason for Disney to spend big money on paid advertising or on wining and dining journalists (and very friendly bloggers) to get the word out on something that won't actually be available to guests for several years.

But.. the initial Limited Time Magic Announcement is tomorrow the 28th? They repeatedly promoted that ALSO in the same parade program.

But then ... Maria Menounnous (*or however you spell it) said at the very end she had a special "Disney Parks" announcement on Tuesday... I don't believe it's major construction or expansion... but I also don't believe it's LTM either.

I think you might be on to something there. The WDW Facebook page says:

"Tune in to Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2013 tonight on ABC and listen for a special Disney Parks announcement to learn how you can spend more Disney Time with your family in the year ahead!"

Yes the only two things showing are New Years Celebration and Year of the Ear.
