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.
