It is that most magical time of year again at the Magic Kingdom and along with all the festive decorations comes an annual event not to be missed and that is the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. This party is a special ticketed event held on select nights now through December 22nd. The Magic Kingdom closes for the evening and ticket holders can start to enter Magic Kingdom at 4:00 p.m. with the official party beginning at 7:00 p.m. and lasting until midnight.
Let me tell you a little about the party so you can decide if this is something you would like to add on to your holiday trip. First, let’s talk about treats! Party guests will enjoy a variety of complimentary sweets and treats located at various treat stations throughout the park. Also, note that there are healthy and gluten-free options that will be available upon request. You will get to fill up on many different yummy cookies, pretzels, eggnog, hot chocolate, apple cider and fanta drinks. There will also be special holiday treats for purchase that are only available during the party!
At this wonderful time of year, Cinderella Castle transforms each night by Queen Elsa as she gives everyone their Frozen Holiday Wish! Christmas magic will surround you with carols and even snow coming down on Main Street!
Then there is the Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade which features costumes and floats that are themed to Winter Wonderland, Christmas Sweets and of course Mr. and Mrs. Claus. The parade happens twice at 8:30 p.m. and 11:00 pm. Just a little tip, the second parade is often easier to get a better seat.
Fireworks at the Magic Kingdom are always special but the Christmastime Fireworks are not to be missed! This year debuts a brand new fireworks show called Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks and is presented at 10:00 p.m. on party nights only.
There are many other party events happening through the night like fun dance parties, Christmas songs performed by a cappella group and special holiday character meet and greets. All of this fun, not to mention the rides and attractions you can enjoy with much shorter waits.
