Why Our Family Loves Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
It’s time to celebrate the season! The Christmas season! It’s a magical time of year, and what better way to experience some Christmas Magic than at Disney’s Magic Kingdom! We LOVE Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party…and here’s why!
Here are 10 Reasons Why My Family Loves Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party:
Cinderella’s Castle Turns Into a Glimmering Ice Palace for the Holidays
Queen Elsa uses her powers to transform Cinderella Castle into a glistening ice palace at 6:15 pm. Kristoff and Olaf even show up to watch the magic happen! Want a sneak peek? Check out my video on Instagram that includes a part of the transformation here.
Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade
No one does a parade quite like Disney. You will get to watch your favorite Disney characters dance down the streets of the Magic Kingdom to your favorite Christmas music. Not to mention Santa is there, he wishes you a “Merry Christmas!” from his colorful sleigh!
Christmas Fireworks Show
Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season is a fireworks show that compares to no other. Brilliant white lights explode in the air above Cinderella Castle in this breathtaking music and fireworks show. Watch for Tinker Bell as she soars into the sky over the crowds! And cheer as Jiminy Cricket reminds you that home is where the heart is—especially during the holidays. I took a few videos while we were there last week, you can check them out on Instagram here and here.
Totally Tomorrowland Christmas
Get ready to rock with Buzz Lightyear, Mike Wazowski, and Stitch! Stitch is on a special mission to track down Santa. But will this adorable alien be naughty or nice to Saint Nick? You’ll have to come and see for yourself 🙂
Celebrate the Season Show
‘Tis the season to give gifts, and Mickey’s present to Minnie is not to be missed! Goofy, Donald, and others get into the holiday spirit with their own version of The Nutcracker in this jubilant musical spectacle.
Of course, it does! You may be in Florida where the temps are not freezing, but you will experience a magical snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A.
Meet Your Favorite Characters
There are opportunities throughout the park for pictures and autographs with some magical Disney Characters
FREE Holiday Snacks
You can enjoy cookies, hot cocoa, apples, and apple juice all over the park…as much as you want!
The Lines…or lack there of
Since this is a special event and the number of tickets sold is limited, there aren’t as many people in the park as usual. That means the wait for your favorite rides is less! That means you get to ride more rides 🙂
Memories Are Made
We have been attending this magical Christmas event for YEARS (the picture above is from our visit back in 2009). We love taking the kids and watching their eyes just light up at the magic that can be found in every corner of the park. These are memories that will be in our hearts forever. These memories are priceless.
Disclosure: While my family and I were able to attend this Magical Event for free, all opinions and our love of Disney are 100% our own.
