Attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for the first time can seem a little overwhelming, with various offerings and entertainment. To skip the hard part, we have highlighted the top five most important things to seek to get the most out of your party night!
The price of your ticket includes five snack locations featuring numerous treats and drinks throughout The Magic Kingdom. Your special event park map will indicate these locations with a candy cane symbol, which shows you where you’ll find an inflatable candy cane marking the spot of entry for a treat location. These treats include chocolate chip, gingerbread, molasses, sugar cookie, and peppermint park partnered with a tasty drink that will make you feel like it’s Christmas, no matter how warm it is in Florida.
Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade is a show-stopping parade with an extensive array of characters that happens twice a night during the party. You’ll be entertained by many different units, including dancers, snow falling from Main Street, and even scented floats as they spread the cheer of Christmas from Frontierland down to Main Street, USA. If you watch the parade on Main Street, you also get a mini pre-parade by the Kringle Krew, a group of elves spreading holiday cheer through music and dance. The parade is completed as you see Santa flying away on his magical sleigh led by his reindeer!
During Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, a unique experience is meeting rare characters during the event. Rare characters are characters from Disney franchises that you can’t meet during daily operations. You can meet Jack and Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas at Town Square Theater at the parties. At MVMCP, Jack Skellington is dressed as Sandy Claws, similar to the classic Santa Claus outfit. Additionally, the party is the only time you can meet the Disney princes such as Flynn Rider, Prince Charming, Naveen, The Prince, Prince Eric, and Prince Phillip. They greet guests alongside their princesses throughout Fantasyland, including Princess Fairytale Hall, New Fantasyland turrets, and Prince Eric’s Village Market.
At the party, you’ll be able to enjoy Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks, which take place once a night. If you are watching from Main Street, you will get a full view of the projections on the castle that make it transform into various things, such as a gingerbread house and so much more. For an additional cost, you can dine at Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace. Either way, you’re sure to enjoy a beautiful show filled with holiday magic as you see the sky glow to some of your favorite holiday songs.
While attending the party, there are two must-see shows for any Disney fan: Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration and A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas. These entertainment offerings have multiple showings a night and include fabulous live singing! Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration takes place on the castle’s main stage and stars Mickey and his friends, including Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, Pluto, Goofy, Chip N Dale, and Clarabelle Cow. Throughout the show, many of Mickey’s friends join in on the fun. Meanwhile, over in Tomorrowland at A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas, you can expect appearances by Buzz Lightyear, Stitch, and Mike Wazoski.
