Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Friday, November 21, 2014

What better way to ring in the cheery holiday season than with a visit to the “Most Magical Place on Earth.” A trip to sunny Orlando quickly turns into a wintry wonderland once the doors open for Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Watch in awe as Walt Disney World transforms itself into a snowy sight with character greetings, jolly shows, and wondrous parades. We’ve collected some of the best tips and tricks for visiting this merry scene and have them here for your delight. Read on to learn how to make the most out of your Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party visit.

The yuletide greetings will begin at 7:00 p.m. sharp, but ticket holders can enter as early as 4:00 p.m. (Yay)! We definitely recommend taking advantage of this early entry so you have the opportunity to ride some much anticipated attractions and don’t miss out on Queen Elsa’s icy debut at Cinderella’s Castle at 6:15 p.m. Plus, the early bird arrival gives you the opportunity to grab a bite to eat before the Party officially starts.

Complimentary cookies and hot cocoa are available for your enjoyment (and warmth)! The lines can get a little lengthy for these delicacies near the Park’s entrance, so try skipping the first cocoa stand as it will likely be the most crowded. The Golden Horseshoe is said to be a good place to get your cookies and hot cocoa because the lines are typically shorter there. Just keep an eye out for the

building hosting the Holiday Hootenanny, which is one of two Character Dance Parties at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

You can get the most out of Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas Parade by landing a spot on Main Street. The absolute best views come from sitting across from Cinderella’s Castle. We love it there because every photograph taken will have the Castle featured in the background. Priceless.

Everyone wants to have a great spot for the Holiday Wishes fireworks show, but in this case, the best views are actually farther away. If you end up too close to the Castle, you won’t get the grand effect of this dashing light show. So make sure grab your family and snag a spot away from the crowd for the best views of this musically cheery wonderment.

Of course, our very best advice in enjoying this Magic Kingdom merry occasion is to book your Orlando stay with us. We offer all of the fun and value of staying near the Park, with accommodations that provide all the comforts of home!
