Is the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party worth the extra $57.00 per person for one night if we are already going to be there all week Dec 3rd through the 10th? Does it offer anything we might not otherwise have a chance to partake of. Just wondering if anyone has attended this event and if it worth it.

After about mid-December when the crowds are so large no one in their right mind would go to the park, MVMCP is basically open to all guests every night. However, during the dates of your visit you will not be able to see the Christmas Parade nor special fireworks. Furthermore, you will not get to partake in the free cookies, cocoa, and apple slices unless you attend the party.

Is it worth the extra charge? I don't know as I have never been to Orlando in December. However, in my mind, if you can afford it, why not go at least once, just to say you did it? Heck, if nothing else, you will have short lines at all the attractions, and the ability to meet tons of characters with little wait. And I hear the hot chocolate is pretty darn good too!

My family and I have done the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party once. I would definately reccommend it. Definately try to stay the whole time, because you pretty much can get on any ride you want later. The parade is something not to be missed and is definately a special addition. The fireworks are excellent as well. The free hot chocolate and cookies are very good. In all it was a great and memorable time, that I believe is worth the extra money.

Just three words : Yes , Yes and Yes.

It's a great evening with the snow guaranteed to fall on Main Street USA and plenty of wonderful Christmas shows to enjoy. We've been and would love to go again if we could afford to do it next time we're there at Christmas. Whether or not it's worth the extra money is really a personal choice because, to be honest, it's not cheap. But anyone who's able to budget for it won't be disappointed.

Just to see it snow on Main Street is worth the cost*****

If it's not too late, I would skip on buying the regular ticket for that day. At the party, you can get in a few hours before it starts without regular admission, and can fit everything in until close, so the $57 can be used as a cheaper ticket for the day, instead of an added cost.

Skipper, when you say a couple of hours early, do you mean around 5:00? I've heard as early as 4:00 but I don't want to get there that early and have to stand around for an hour and wait. Any advice?

I think its worth it. You have smaller crowds because of the limited amount sold, christmas parade, special christmas fireworks show that shots fireworks all over the park!, character dance parties, all the characters are in there christmas costumes, cookies and hot chocolate (which are great by the way!)and they make it SNOW on Main Street USA!

You get in at 4:00pm if you have a party ticket. It actually says it on the tickets if you print them at home. :)
