Only one other marching band in the country is bestowed the same honor, the news release states.
Watch the annual Christmas Day parade on TV Dec. 25 at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on ABC.
The 70-member band was chosen because of it fully incorporates bagpipes, kilts and Scottish military uniforms and tradition. The band's unique Scottish quality was needed for a segment in the parade, the news release states.
The Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade airs at 9 a.m. for all other major U.S. time zones, according to the Disney parade website. Check your local listings for more information.
