If you enjoyed our first time-lapse video from Magic Kingdom Park, wait until you see our latest — it’s the transformation of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. We’re showing several nights of work at Walt Disney World in less than one minute. Blink and you’ll miss the vanishing jack-o-lanterns.
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
