What happens when you combine the most magical time of year with the most magical place on earth? You get Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party held every year at the Magic Kingdom!
Entering Mickey’s Party, is one of the most spectacular sights to behold. With snow falling all around you, garlands hanging down Main Street USA, Christmas music filling the air, and Cinderella’s Castle aglow in over 200,000 lights you will feel like you really have walked into a winter wonderland fairytale.
While the party officially starts at 7pm, you may enter the Magic Kingdom at 4pm with your specially designated ticket. Be sure to do so and take in as many of the regular park activities as you can before the party begins! Then it’s time for the wonder of your inner child to shine.
Mickey’s Christmas Party features some of the most unique opportunities for character greets you can find all year long. Characters are dressed up in their holiday finery and special appearances are made by Snow White’s seven dwarfs, Captain Jack Sparrow, the princes accompanying their princesses and of course, one can’t forget a visit with Santa Claus!
One of the most enjoyable shows can be seen on the stage in front of Cinderella’s castle. If you time your night just right, you can get a front row view of Celebrate the Season by waiting just a bit after the Holiday Wishes fireworks show. While everyone else clears the area, move towards the front of the castle for picture perfect sights of Mickey and his friends celebrating the season in song and dance. Don’t know what to do next? The second showing of Once Upon a Christmastime Parade will take place just behind you only a few minutes later and you can easily shift to get a front row view of the parade. From Mickey and Minnie dressed up in their holiday finest, to Santa Claus on his sleigh, and all the wonderful characters in between, this parade will be remembered forever!
A Tomorrowland Christmas Party is another delightful show filled with song and dance you won’t want to miss. Featuring Hailey Comet, experience an intergalactic party with Buzz Lightyear, Mike Wazowski, and Stitch, and see if Stitch can find Santa before time runs out. Arrive a few minutes early for this show and your child could be picked helping the crowd during some old fashioned pre-show caroling.
As a final treat Christmas treat for all, be sure to stop for complimentary hot chocolate and snicker doodles or a healthy alternative, served all around Magic Kingdom. Then work off the extra treats with a dance party at Cosmic Ray’s or at Woody’s Happy Harvest Roundup.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party only runs on certain nights during the Christmas season and is a separate ticketed event. Be sure to contact your Me and the Mouse Travel agent to experience this once in a lifetime must-do event!
