Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a special event held during the holidays on select nights November 8th through December 18 at the Magic Kingdom theme park. It is a hard ticketed event meaning you will need to purchase a special admission ticket to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. This festive celebration is filled with live entertainment, spectacular fireworks, a most excellent holiday parade and much more!

We look particularly forward to this event every year and it’s one of the things we enjoy as we prepare for the holidays. I just love sipping hot cocoa and eating sugar cookies while snow falls on Mainstreet U.S.A. ! Nothing else quite says “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” like that does!

All your Disney friends will be here on this special night too, decked out in their holiday attire and ready for special photo ops. Cinderella Castle is a main attraction of the night, it’s all covered in in glistening ice and there’s a special show in front of the castle where Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and the Fairy Godmother all help Cinderella make her wish come true to cover the castle in ice. There’s also a Castle Stage Show with live entertainment. You definitely won’t want to miss the nighttime fireworks spectacular, Holiday Wishes over Cinderella Castle.

Oh and speaking of not to be missed, the highlight of the evening for me, okay besides the Cinderella Castle Dream Lights and Holiday Wishes is Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, complete with a special appearance by Santa Claus himself! It’s a fantastic parade with Disney characters, Toy Soldiers, Dancers and incredible floats and it ends as every Christmas parade should with Santa Claus! What more could you want

    I have to say Christmas at Disney is awesome. My family went and we were amazed. Not to mention that we left Texas and it was in the 20’s and got to WDW and the whole week was in the mid 70’s, everything was green and there were flowers blooming. For us that was exciting.


  2. Tony says:

    This is my favorite hard ticket event all year. I have many fond memories of bring my kids to this event. It is a do not miss on my list of things to do at WDW.

    Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party looks great. Mabye some year I’ll go. I have been checking the weather there and, it have been warm. Here, in Central Pennslyvania, it has been in the 40’s to 50’s.

    Hey Rick,

    I can’t wait to visit Disney World at Christmas time. I don’t know when I will be able to do it but it is on my list of things that I want to do. I loved looking at the pictures. I can’t wait to see the parade in person.

    I would love to again go to WDW for Christmas. I have never been there ON Christmas Day, but up to about two days before.
    Is it insanely crowded on Christmas Day and the week following?

    I visited the middle of Dec. 2011 and it was SPECTACULAR! Do you ever sell any of your pictures? There are some pictures of the castle and parade that I would be interested in purchasing. Thank You for sharing. Wish I would have found your blog before I visited.
