“Is the extra money for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party worth it?” – everyone considering going to Mickey’s Christmas party.
If you’ve visited Walt Disney World during the holiday season, you’ve asked yourself that very question. You aren’t alone. Scouring boards and social media, it is one of the most common questions regarding planning WDW trips around the holidays. The answer may seem obvious, but individuals weighing whether or not to attend are looking for specifics on why they should pull the trigger on purchasing tickets. As holiday parties sell-out quickly, we’ve provided you with a few reasons why reveling in the holiday fun at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is worth the extra cash.
Disney resorts and parks are known for their food choices. However, the nums really get ramped up for Christmas parties, especially at Walt Disney World. There are usually a host of dessert parties complimented with spectacular seating for viewing fireworks. These parties, although adding an extra strain to the ole wallet, are accessible for party goers. With special treats, food, and beverage…you are treated to an event that not many others get the opportunity to attend. They are definitely worth the dough and add a little extra pixie dust to any holiday party vacation.
The Magic Kingdom host parades each and every day (weather pending). So, what makes a Christmas themed parade worth the extra ticket? The short answer is a fabulous spectacle! Characters that aren’t usually out at the parks are often seen in holiday parades (Ralph and Venelope are a fan favorite this year). And of course who doesn’t want to see marching toy soldiers, prancing reindeer, gingerbread men, and Santa himself! Obviously, these are characters that you aren’t going to get to see on your average day at Walt Disney World, but with two separate parade options…rare characters and visually stunning floats abound during the holiday parties.
More Food Sprinkled with Some Merchandise
We mentioned the dessert parties above, but if you opt out of that choice, there are still loads and loads of wonderful goodies available all over the Magic Kingdom during a Christmas party. In addition, fantastic annual merchandise dedicated to the holidays and Christmas party are available to guests. Pins, clothing, plushies, and home decor are almost overpouring in shops all around the parks. Who doesn’t want to watch a Disney Christmas parade with an awesome flashing lightbulb necklace while munching on Mickey holiday sweets? I do!!!!!
State of the Art Castle Show
This is definitely the highlight of a Christmas party event at the Magic Kingdom. Join Elsa, Anna, and Olaf (along with other familiar friends) as they transform Cinderella’s Castle into a wonderous ice-laden fortress…it’s one of the more amazing Imagineering feats in all four parks! The simmering ice palace is reason enough to visit during the holidays, but the show leading up to its lighting is just as amazing.
No one likes to make a decision in the vice of a time-crunch. However, when deciding to purchase party tickets for holidays at Disney parks…you don’t have much of a choice. These special events sell-out rather quickly. In fact, the first Christmas party this year sold out well before its actual date. This is probably the most pressing reason behind making the decision to attend. If you don’t do it now, you may not get the opportunity again until next year.
I personally encourage everyone who enjoys a visit to Walt Disney World to attend their holiday parties. The offerings are unique to party guests and can’t be experienced anywhere else. There is something to be said and felt when enjoying the smells, sounds, and sights of a Christmas party at the Magic Kingdom. It’s pure magic and should be enjoyed by everyone at least once. So…should you buy those Christmas party tickets…if you haven’t yet then you better hurry!
