Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Inflatable Tube with Mickey and Minnie ImagesMickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is certainly a highlight to any Walt Disney World Christmas visit.  My family had the privilege of attending last year.  It was an experience we will always remember.  Being able to have allergy safe snacks, meet special characters, and experience “snow” in Florida was a real treat for the entire family.

There are so many benefits to attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party.  These include:

  • Generally smaller crowd during the party
  • Special Meet & Greets exclusive to the Christmas party
  • Unlimited Disney Christmas snacks such as sugar cookies, hot chocolate, Snowman Soft Pretzel, Sno-Cones, eggnog, and more
  • Special Christmas shows like 
    • Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration Christmas
    • A Frozen Holiday Wish
  • Special Christmas Parade
  • Holiday Wishes Fireworks

While the price can be steep, I would still recommend it to anyone who can manage it.  The cost varies depending on the date you attend and whether you are an annual pass holder. The average MVMCP hard ticket in 2017 is $95 for adults and $90 for children ages 3-9.  As annual pass holders, we received a small discount, but after purchasing passes, it was still difficult to pay out another near $500 for the party.  However, having said that, I would still recommend everyone attend the part at least once.

If you aren’t an annual pass holder, then the cost to attend the party is comparable to a day pass to enter Magic Kingdom.  It’s true the party doesn’t begin until 7pm, but ticket holders can enter the party at 4pm giving you at least 8 hours of park time. The latter 5 hours of that time is reserved for ticket holders only!  Generally, this means fewer people in the park and less waiting time for rides. 

Now, let’s take a brief photo tour to highlight some of our favorite moments from MVMCP.

The decorations and Christmas trees truly are delightful both day and night during the Disney Christmas season.  Magic Kingdom certainly stands out amongst all the parks when it comes to holiday decor.  There is just something extra magical about walking down Main Street all decked out for the holidays.

The Christmas parade is not to be missed!  So many classic and unique Disney characters! It is definitely a highlight of the evening!

The opportunity to meet characters you can’t always meet during regular park hours is a huge draw for Disney fans.  In some cases, they even interact with you right in the street!  We had so much fun having pictures made with the Country bears.

A very special treat was being able to have a one of a kind family portrait made with ALL SEVEN of The Seven Dwarves!

Other highlights of our evening included seeing the special Christmas shows and Holiday Wishes.  The castle is never more beautiful than when it is all lit up for Christmas!

I had to explain who Jiminy Cricket Was to the Kids!

Unfortunately, I didn’t get pictures of the snacks we consumed. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that, haha!  However, believe me when I say there are plenty of yummy’s to go around.  Also, since my kids have food allergies, we were so happy that as Disney is apt to do, there were great options for them as well.  If you want to know more about how they felt about it check out our live video we did on Facebook.  Snacks definitely topped the list of their favorite things about visiting Disney at Christmas!

  1. AAAAH! I geek out for this event. It is absolutely an enjoyable time. There is a different feel in the air than during regular Magic Kingdom hours. It is definitely worth attending at least once. Thank you for sharing so many details and fun pictures.

  2. We just hit up Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, so it looks like MVMCP is next on the list! I’m a huge fan of the special carriages in the parades and character meet and greets! We visited last year at New Year’s and were able to see “Elsa’s Castle” as my daughter calls it. It was truly breathtaking. Thanks for sharing on #MouseFanMondays!
