4 Reasons Why You Should Attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

DISNEY AT CHRISTMAS! Is there anything more magical!? I will answer that for you with a big NO! I could not be more excited for the Christmas season & with that, comes my love for Disney during the holidays. Every year, we make sure that we head to Orlando and experience the beauty of the parks and the resorts all decorated to perfection! The detail is just amazing to me & is totally unmatched. This is our second year heading to the amazing Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party & it surely did not disappoint. If you are thinking of attending, here are my top 4 reasons why you should book the trip!

1. Magic Kingdom is less crowded!

This one usually makes the dad’s ears perk up. Less crowded? YES! By a lot! Over the last few years, we have averaged going to Disney about one day every month, so we have definitely figured out the days and times when the park seems to be the least crowded. Has there ever been a day with less wait times and crowd struggle than during the Very Merry Christmas Party? Absolutely not. The rides times were all super short – I’m talking walk right on – for most of the night! It is such a blast to not only experience the magic of the holiday but also be able to ride more rides than on a typical night! (My husband may or may not have rode on Space Mountain 6x in a row!)

2. The Parade, Show, and Fireworks are One of a Kind!

If you are a Disney lover like me, then I know that you love being able to have all the unique firework shows and parades under your belt! There is nothing like the magic if seeing a new production for the first time. Don’t forget, the park has a lot less visitors as well, so finding a good spot to watch is even easier! BONUS! The kids especially loved watching the parade floats all decorated for Christmas and getting to see the special guest at the end – SANTA! Before we left the park, we watched the show on the castle stage. Everyone singing together in unison fun Christmas tunes was the highlight of my night!

3. Indulging in the delicious complimentary treats is amazing!

This is a major perk of attending this party! SNACKS on SNACKS! You will be shocked the first time you attend – I know I was. There are multiple stations throughout the park where you can go up to the counter and grab a complimentary party treat. I have to admit, if you have gone in past years, Disney has stepped up their treat game this year! Everything from Dove Chocolates, to cookies, to hot cocoa, and chocolate milk, snow cones and cider! You will be full by the time you make it around the park – guaranteed!

4. The experience is so festive and special!

Making precious family memories is my favorite thing to do. Anything that becomes a tradition and is remembered from year to year in our home is so special to me and my husband. I love that Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party has become that for us. We plan on attending each year and allowing our kids to grow up with these amazing memories together. I cannot be more excited for next year’s party & that’s just it. There is something so amazing and magical about the party that you will catch the bug and I swear to you it will become a tradition for you as well.



I hope this helped you make a decision about attending the party! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, friends!

    Grandparents need to seriously consider this event as well – shorter hours, shorter lines, cooler temps and very happy grandchildren make this a do not miss annual tradition! The park is just beautiful as well.

    We loved the experience this year! Definitely something to do at least once with the kids! My little ones especially loved the Santa cookies 😉 But you’re also spot on with it being the best time to go on the rides!! I love that you can get in at 4 with the party passes and experience your fav attractions!
