Christmas is a little over a week away…can you believe it?!? I’ve never really been a HUGE fan of Christmas, but I’ve always wanted to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party because I love the look of the lights on Cinderella’s Castle and the idea of it snowing on Main Street. Well this year I got the chance and since the Christmas season is now in full swing, I thought I would share some Disney holiday cheer!
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a hard ticket event held at the Magic Kingdom on select night in November and December. While many of the decorations and events like the castle lighting show happens every night during the holiday season, there are many events and photo opportunities that are unique to the party. Check out some of the fun decorations up and down Main Street.
Cinderella’s Castle is lit up with thousands of beautiful icicle lights and get turned on just after dusk by the characters of Frozen. You can catch a glimpse of Olaf here!
There are special character photo ops all around the park including a brand new appearance by Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws!! The wait for a photo was over 2 hours long so I didn’t wait, but people were THRILLED! I personally found him to look like a creepy alien, so I’m kind of glad I didn’t get on line.
Unique shows like the Jingle Jungle Cruise and holiday versions of typical shows take place. Check out all the pirates in Christmas garb.
There is a unique Holiday Wishes fireworks show and Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade!
FREE cookies and hot chocolate all around the park!! You can find the stations by these huge inflated candy canes…I was clearly thrilled by this 🙂
And finally…it snows on Main Street!! Yup, in Florida, it’s snowing. This is the kind of snow I can get behind! No shoveling and moderate temperatures…woohoo!
So even this non-Christmas lover can’t help but get in the season when at the Magic Kingdom. I just wish I could spend the entire season there and not deal with the crowds, shopping, etc… Oh well, at least I have these great photos to look at to get me in the holiday mood 🙂 Hope you have enjoyed them too!
