While we are busy enjoying Pumpkin spice everything and preparing to greet trick or treaters, Disney is hard at work preparing to greet guests this Christmas season! To get into the holiday spirit, we have rounded up our favorite holiday celebrations from around Walt Disney World this year for you.
Mickeys Very Merry Chrismas Party
Quite possibly our favorite Disney event of the year! There is just so much to do and see at this party. MVMCP is really a treat for the senses. Some of our favorite parts of the party are the treats! Complimentary cookies and hot cocoa are available at various locations throughout the Magic Kingdom. Experience more of your favorite attractions in much less wait time with shorter waits on many Magic Kingdom favorites. The Jungle Cruise even transforms itself into the Jingle Cruise for a holly, jolly twist on a beloved favorite! Another thing we are sure to never miss is the amazing parade! If like me, you grew up watching “Disney’s Very Merry Christmas Parade” on tv, this is an experience that will be absolutely magical, and at even produce a year or two. The parade is called “Once Upon a Christmas Time” now, and many floats are different but the spirit and feel of the parade are very much the same. Be sure to check out a Frozen Holiday Wish and witness magic in the making as Elsa transforms Cinderella Castle into an Ice Palace! Stick around for Holiday Wishes, a spectacular fireworks show set to Christmas musical favorites both old and new! This event does require a separate ticket, not included with regular Park at admission.
