A Disney Christmas Gift is a 47-minute Christmas television special which aired on December 4, 1982 as an episode of CBS' Walt Disney Presents television program. It was a Christmas-themed compilation of animated shorts featuring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck combined with excerpts from Disney feature films. The opening and closing numbers, featuring the song "On Christmas Morning", showcased Christmas at Disneyland. The special was made as a result of Disney being forced to delay the release of Mickey's Christmas Carol due to an animator's strike. The special was nominated for the 1984 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming Less Than One Hour); however, it lost to Garfield on the Town.

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the original full-length and shortened versions of the special were rebroadcast on CBS and the Disney Channel.

A different version was also aired in 1986 on the syndicated Wonderful World of Disney program, which removed "On Christmas Morning" and most of the interstitials between cartoons.
