Planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort for the holidays? Then you can’t miss Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park, which celebrates the season with festive decor, glittering holiday lights, special photo opportunities, holiday entertainment you have to see to believe, snow on Main Street, U.S.A., and so much more.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which requires a special ticket to attend, will be held on the following nights: November 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 17, 26 and 28; and December 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21 and 22. Party fun takes place from 7 p.m.-midnight, although party ticket holders may enter the park as early as 4 p.m. to enjoy regular park offerings.
Kicking off the evening is the must-see offering, “A Frozen Holiday Wish.” Guests arriving early for the party can watch as royal sisters Anna and Elsa lead a celebration for their friends on the Castle Forecourt Stage that culminates in Queen Elsa using her incredible powers to transform Cinderella Castle into a shimmering ice palace for the holidays.
Later in the evening, the stage plays host to “Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration,” a live show in which Mickey and his pals hold an unforgettable holiday gathering that celebrates friendship and music.
Another party must-see is “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade,” which steps off twice during each party night. This enchanting holiday parade features dancing gingerbread men, marching toy soldiers, Disney characters, Santa Claus and more bringing the fun straight down Main Street, U.S.A.
Then the highlight of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party night is “Holiday Wishes Fireworks– Celebrate the Spirit of the Season,” a special fireworks show set to holiday tunes that lights up the sky above Magic Kingdom Park.
The party also offers guests a chance to snack on complimentary hot cocoa and cookies, enjoy party exclusive character greetings (and photos!), as well as pick up event-exclusive merchandise and holiday treats. Keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for more details on the goodies that will be offered at this year’s party.
