Yummy Treats for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort

We all look forward to the fanciful decorations, Disney characters in holiday finery, the music, the spectacular fireworks and oh-so-jolly holiday parade at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom Park – it’s just days until the festivities begin on November 8 to kick off the winter season!

Holiday sweets are part of the fun, and the Disney chefs have come up with some goodies exclusively for the party. Our first stop will be the Main Street Bakery for the almost-too-cute-to-eat Holiday Bear Cupcake with vanilla cake with peanut butter chips and chocolate frosting ($5.19) or the peppermint cupcake with buttercream frosting and peppermint sprinkles ($5.19). And there’s the requisite sugar cookie with holiday sprinkles, too ($2.59). All are on the Disney Dining Plan.


At the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street, U.S.A., there’s a holiday cookie ice-cream sandwich ($5.29 and on the Disney Dining Plan), as well as a Peppermint Fudge Sundae. At Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland, an adorable Holiday Tree Cupcake is made with spiced cake—infused with orange zest, cinnamon, clove and star anise—topped with sprinkles, buttercream icing and an edible star ($5.19 and on the Disney Dining Plan). The pumpkin spice waffle has also returned to Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square, this year it is topped with rich hand-scooped ice cream and holiday sprinkles.

If you love souvenirs, check out the premium popcorn buckets of the holiday popcorn bucket ($6), or the souvenir holiday mug ($5.25). The adorable Elf Mickey Stein will also be available throughout the park, but our favorite is as a sundae from Plaza Restaurant.

See you at the party! Dates are November 8-December 18.


  • Grand Floridian Gingerbread House under construction presently and scheduled to go up on the 19th-we saw the house in the lobby today-sans the gingerbread of course :). Must have planned better last year for later trip in November as my best pictures all from Grand Foridian with the beautiful decorations and gingerbread house-so disappointed to have not planned better this year-but plenty of pics and memories from last year :).

  • I would also love some vegan treat options! As it is I end up packing almost all the food I eat in the parks. (I will say I was THRILLED to find the vegan chocolate bar in Disneyland last month. A good start!)

  • Any idea how long the Christmas decorations stay up at Magic kingdom?

  • I am right there with you Benjamin!! There was once a cupcake at Gastons for the Halloween party that was vegan/allergy friendly and my whole family each got like 2 because we were so excited to be included! Maybe it will happen again one day!

  • These treats all look so festive.

    I’m going to venture a guess that none of them are vegan though, which is a shame because lack of food options really does keep my family from paying for special events like this.

  • Will these treats only be available at the parties, or will they be for the Christmas season? I won’t get there till just before New Years!

  • Any idea when the Resort decorations will be up. We will be there Nov. 18-21 and I would love my for my brother to see the Grand Floridian Ginger Bread house!!

  • any pictures of the popcorn bucket or glasses?

  • These all look so delicious!!! Very happy to see the pumpkin spice waffle back! Question: will these treats be available during the last week of December along with all of the other holiday festivities at that time? Thanks!
