Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party
Disney World has a yearly celebration called Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party. I am only going to give a brief overview, but if you can make it to the party I would suggest you go. This is a separately ticketed event which begins November 8th and runs until December 18th. The party is from 7-12 midnight. You can enter as early as 4 p.m. if you wish with your ticket.
During the party there are many special things to do, such as:
One of the most special is Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade which is spectacular. This is a can’t-miss type event with so many Disney character favorites and even Santa Claus himself! During the parade, snow is showered upon you as you watch on Main Street U.S.A. The parade is held two times in the evening; at 8:15 and 10:30.
There is also a special Holiday Wishes Fireworks Celebration. Cinderella’s Castle is lit up beautifully for the holidays and this provides a backdrop for the amazing fireworks show. The fireworks and the music are Christmas-themed. Holiday Wishes is at 9:30.
There are many character meet and greets ranging from the Seven Dwarfs, Daisy, Donald, Santa Goofy, Jack Skellington and of course, Mickey and Minnie! There is a separate area for meet and greets with the princesses in Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland.
Back in Tomorrowland, there is a stage show featuring Buzz Lightyear, Mike Wazowski and Stitch. It is held on the Rockettower Plaza Stage and show times are 7:45, 8:45, 9:55, 10:50, and 11:45. It is primarily aimed at younger audiences and is a musical show.
Celebrate The Season Show takes places on the Castle Stage at 7:30, 10:05, and 11:20. It features Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy and is a Disney take on The Nutcracker.
Complimentary cookies and cocoa are available in various locations throughout the park in unlimited amounts. There are many nights when it is chilly enough that the warm cocoa and cookies really hit the spot.
If you visit Disney World during November or December make sure not to miss Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party!
