Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2019

 

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.

 

9 Must-Do’s For Fall Visits to Walt Disney World Resort

 

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.

So if you and your family want to partake in all this festive Christmastime fun, contact your Kingdom Magic Vacation travel planner today!

Tickets Now Available For Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Visits

 

Another amazing perk of attending a separately ticketed party such as this one is that there are a limited number of tickets sold for each event evening. This means guests at the party can enjoy the park with very limited crowds. In turn this means you will get to enjoy shorter attraction wait times and get to see and do more during your time in the parks.

 

An exciting experience during the party is the attraction overlays that Disney puts on! This is when Disney will add exciting festive elements to an attraction to give it a new theme or exciting enhancement! This first started being seen during the parties at last year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! It was an instant hit with guests and in response this year Disney will be introducing some attraction overlays to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! That’s right Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will offer brand-new overlays to many Magic Kingdom attractions this year! Here are a few of the exciting overlays you can look forward to experiencing at the event!

Walt Disney World is a wonderful destination to visit year round but during the holidays the magic increases even more with festive decorations in every inch of the parks and resorts as well as special Christmas events and holiday offerings! I always love planning a visit to the parks around the holiday season, which in Disney typically begins the first week in November and runs through the first week of the new year! During this time you can take in all the breathtaking holiday decorations at both the parks and resorts as well as take part in some of those special Christmas offerings I mentioned!

12 Must-Dos During the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort

There’s so much to see and experience across Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season! Here are 12 must-dos for guests:

1. See the all-new Toy Story Land Holiday Decor
This new immersive land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be decked out with festive spirit during the holidays. New decor will include an oversized cranberry-and-popcorn garland and a 10-foot-tall Hamm sugar cookie at Woody’s Lunch Box, as well as green alien ornaments near the entrance to Alien Swirling Saucers, just to name a few. Plus, guests will hear sleigh bells ringing on Slinky Dog Dash, while Alien Swirling Saucers will offer two holiday tracks with themed lighting. The characters will also show off new holiday looks for the season – Woody and Jessie will wear special holiday vests and sprigs of holly on their hats, while Buzz Lightyear will don a snazzy Santa hat.

2. Catch showings of Sunset Seasons Greetings and “Jingle Ball, Jingle BAM!”
Guests should definitely make plans to see both of the nighttime shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that are special to the season. “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” follows the animated elves from “Disney Prep & Landing” as they search for Santa Claus, who has gone missing. Iconic music, fireworks, special effects and state-of-the-art projections help bring this spectacular to life. And over on Sunset Boulevard, new laser effects add even more sparkle to Sunset Seasons Greetings, the towering holiday projection show on the Hollywood Tower Hotel. Throughout the night, the show features Mickey Mouse, Olaf and other beloved Disney characters sharing their favorite seasonal stories.

3. Enjoy Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Indulge in complimentary sweet holiday treats, enjoy specialty entertainment such as the awe-inspiring Holiday Wishes fireworks spectacular and Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, and celebrate the spirit of the season with unforgettable experiences, including snow flurries on Main Street, U.S.A.

4. Don’t miss A Frozen Holiday Wish
Guests can get swept up in the holiday spirit when Queen Elsa transforms Cinderella Castle into the gorgeous, glistening, icy holiday centerpiece of Magic Kingdom. Featuring appearances by Anna and Elsa, along with rugged mountain man Kristoff and the lovable snowman Olaf, this merry-and-bright seasonal show culminates in Queen Elsa using her incredible powers to present a gift to everyone in the kingdom.

5. Savor new items from Epcot Holiday Kitchens
Holiday Kitchens offer delectable bites inspired by holiday traditions around the world. Every holiday season brings new tastes and treats. New this year is the L’Chaim! Kitchen featuring traditional Hebrew dishes such as pastrami on rye, chicken and matzo ball soup, egg cream and more. Feast of the Three Kings Kitchen will feature a new menu, including sofrito-marinated beef with sweet plantains and olives, as well as queso fresco-stuffed arepas topped with shrimp. Other new samplings include black forest roulade with cherry whipped cream at the Bavaria Holiday Kitchen in the Germany pavilion and hand-carved smoked ham with green beans and sweet potato casserole at the American Holiday Table in The American Adventure.

6. Be moved by a performance of the Candlelight Processional at Epcot
Delight in the story of Christmas as told by a celebrity narrator accompanied by a full choir and a 50-piece orchestra during a performance that inspires joy and holiday spirit. New narrators this year include Alfonso Ribeiro (Nov. 26-27) and “Moana” voice actress Auli’i Cravalho (Dec. 21-23). A great way to experience the show is with a Candlelight Processional Dining Package; guests can learn more and make reservations for the package at disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/epcot/candlelight-dinner-packages/.

7. Take in IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth and other international holiday entertainment
The nighttime spectacular IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth includes a special holiday finale from Nov. 18 to Dec. 30. This will be the final holiday season for this show that takes place on and around World Showcase Lagoon. The show will conclude a 20-year run at the end of summer 2019, before new thrills debut on the lagoon immediately afterward. World Showcase is also the place to discover the sights, sounds and tastes that are part of holiday celebrations from around the world.

8. Shop till you drop at Disney Springs
There is a gift idea for everyone at Disney Springs, the shopping, dining and entertainment district at Walt Disney World. Disney fans will love the Disney-themed exclusive items at stores such as the newly reimagined World of Disney and DisneyStyle, while trendsetters will appreciate the apparel and accessories at stores such as Coach, Anthropologie, Pandora, Sephora and others. And kids will love gifts from stores like Once Upon a Toy and The LEGO Store.

This year’s trail features 27 unique holiday trees with new additions inspired by Toy Story, The Haunted Mansion and Star Wars. Guests can even meet Santa at his chalet inside the trail.

10. Discover Diwali during UP! A Great Bird Adventure
This all-new show takes guests on a journey to discover some of the world’s exotic birds along with fun-loving Russell and his furry friend Dug from Disney•Pixar’s hit film “Up.” During the holiday season, a special version of the show will introduce guests to discover the story of Diwali, the holiday festival of lights in India.

2018 Jingle Cruise at Magic Kingdom! Jungle Cruise Christmas Overlay! Walt Disney World

 

If you have ever visited the Magic Kingdom then I’m sure you have visited the Jungle Cruise! Everyone loves this classic Disney Parks attraction! After all it is called the “World Famous Jungle Cruise” for a reason! In this original attraction guest board a boat and embark on a voyage through the jungle. The tour is being guided by your own boat skipper who tells some very cheesy jokes! It’s these goofy lines such as “If you don’t believe me you’re in de-Nile” and “The backside of water” that make the attraction so iconic and beloved by millions of park visitors!

 

 

Did you know that during the holiday season the Jungle Cruise is transformed with a fun holiday overlay?! That’s right! During the most magical time of the year, the Jungle Cruise at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World becomes the Jingle Cruise! The Jingle Cruise receives holiday decorations in both the queue line and inside the attraction itself. One of the most notable differences that makes the attraction a whole new experience is that the script also changes! Now your Jingle Cruise skipper tells jokes and punch lines themed to the holiday season!

 

 

 

 

 

As soon as you enter the attraction’s queue line you will find holiday decorations everywhere you turn! I love the Christmas tree made out of bamboo when you first enter the standby line! Your time waiting in line feels like it flies by because there are so many details to look at! Be sure to look around and appreciate the references and jokes in the skipper’s holiday decorations! One of my favorite details was a chalk board where the skippers wrote their New Year’s resolutions. One skipper’s resolution was to ‘achieve a 75% passenger return rate!’  Another funny holiday detail to look for is the names of each of the Jingle Cruise boats. The boats themselves get holiday overlays to their names. A few of my favorite included the Brrrrr Bertha, Mistletoe Millie, Yulelog Lolly, and the Icicle Irma!

 

 

 

 

Once onboard your festive boat you will continue to notice more holiday decorations throughout the ride such as packages floating in the water, Santa hats on the gorillas, elf hats on the monkeys and more! Your boat’s skipper will narrate your cruise with holiday themed jokes! This is my favorite part of the attraction overlay! Even if you have been on the Jungle Cruise hundreds of times, the ride will feel brand new to you with the new script and storyline that the Jingle Cruise brings!

 

 

Some of my favorite jokes include the reference of the big bugs in the rainforest scene being referred to as “bah humbugs!” I also love the group of natives getting ready to attack your boat being referred to as a group of holiday carolers! If you have been on the Jungle Cruise before then you know at the very end of the attraction you will find Trader Sam, the ‘head’ salesman of the jungle. Well during the Jingle Cruise, he is deck out in his holiday best like Santa Claus and referred to as Trader Sam-ta! He is also offering special holiday promotions but take warning they don’t sound too appealing!

 

 

Watch this year’s 2018 Jingle Cruise now in our new YouTube video!

 

Give the gift of family memories this holiday! Contact your Kingdom Magic Vacations Travel Planner to plan the vacation of your dreams! Give the ones you love a present they will always remember and cherish!
