Highlights from Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
When we were in Orlando last week, we visited Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
"Excuse me, folks, but where do you think you're going?"
Below, we put together a video of some of the highlights, including the Main Street snowfall, the new "Frozen Holiday Wish" show, the Jingle Cruise, Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, and the Holiday Wishes fireworks show. And, oh yes, the free cookies and hot chocolate, too!
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party runs select evenings through Dec. 19. It's a hard-ticket event that requires a separate admission, with adult prices starting at $67. The Frozen castle show and Jingle Cruise are part of the regular holiday offerings at the park, so you don't have to go to the party to see them. The party starts at 7pm and runs through midnight, but you can enter the Magic Kingdom as early as 4pm with your party ticket. To get in earlier, you will need a regular admission ticket for the day. If you do use a regular admission ticket and are staying for the party, you can get your party wristband after 4pm at one of three locations in the park: City Hall, by Buzz Lightyear, and by the Diamond Horseshoe. Disney cast members will start directing everyone without a wristband to exit the park at 7pm.

I went twice this year, once on a Thursday and once on a Sunday. The Thursday date was a much better experience, as it was quite a bit less crowded.
We love both parties. The Christmas party is my favorite of the two. We went to the Halloween party last year, and it just seems more congested at the candy zones than the Christmas party does at the cookie and Hot Chocolate areas. I agree that visiting on the weekend seems even more crowded than on a week night. We also went for two nights, Friday Nov. 7th and Monday Nov. 10th. We still missed out on the Castle show and such. I thought we would do better this year time wise since the boys didn't want to meet any characters. I have to say the highlight for me was the Jingle Cruise. Some of my favorite photos of the party were taken in line for the ride. The skipper we had was fantastic.
Shocking that they don't offer egg nog, gingerbread cookies, candy canes, peppermint bark. These are traditional Christmas goodies. The Halloween Party offered much better treats at the same admission price. I so loaded up on my treats that it was ridiculous. The problem with the Christmas event is it seems like a regular day, just that they charged separately for the entertainment that they included previously. They need an extra something to put it over the top. I suggest they bulk it up with more Christmas treats and an included photo with Santa Clause or other Christmas icon like an elf, snowman, Mrs. Clause, or Rudolph.
Hello! We are planning on going to the party on December 19, the last day it is offered.
