Getting started is as simple as going to Disneyworld.com/christmasparty and entering a name. The first series of online choices is interesting and a no-brainer for me. I’m clicking the Dapper Dans for a special Christmas song. You can also check out video featuring Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade or holiday greetings from Disney friends.
After each experience, more choices appear. They include video of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and even snowflakes on Main Street, U.S.A. And during the journey, there are some special hidden surprises to discover. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is underway and as you can see, David Hartmann, art director with Walt Disney Entertainment and his team have beefed up the look of the Mickey floral in the front of the park. Also, scarecrows are being replaced by toy soldiers. They were a huge hit at Santa’s meet-and-greet and now they’ll be hard to miss in Town Square, according to David. Another new touch in Town Square will be peppermint sticks.
The Magic Kingdom Park enhancements are based on David’s experiences during trips to Disney as a child. He’s trying to inspire people to take some magic home with them.
There’s plenty to look forward to at this year’s Party. Besides the enchanted Castle Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle and Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, there’s a magical snow fall on Main Street, U.S.A. and live entertainment featuring Disney characters. The event runs from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. on the following dates:
November 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 29
December 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17, 18
