UPDATE: We’ve released information on the 2012 edition of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World Resort.
When I moved to Florida more than 10 years ago, something I knew I’d miss during Christmastime was snow. During my first holiday season in Central Florida, I wondered how I’d ever find the holiday spirit while surrounded by sunny skies and green palm trees. But all of that changed the moment I stepped into Magic Kingdom Park for my first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – and for my family and I, the holidays haven’t been the same since.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a hard-ticket event that takes place after Magic Kingdom Park closes (yes, you need a separate ticket for entrance). Parties run from 7 p.m.-midnight, and during that time, guests can enjoy snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A., special holiday entertainment, additional character meet-and-greets, seasonal treats, and an illuminating performance of Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season fireworks.
This year, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade will feature an appearance by Duffy the Disney Bear, and new character meet and greets will be available, including Phineas & Ferb in Tomorrowland, the Seven Dwarfs in Frontierland and Duffy the Disney Bear in Town Square. (Entertainment is subject to change).
Parties will take place Nov. 8, 9, 11, 13, 15, 18, 27, 29 and 30, Dec. 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16 and 18. Day-of-event pricing is $62.95 and $57.95 for ages 3-9. Savings of $6 per ticket are available (on select dates only) if tickets are purchased in advance.
I’ll see you there!
