Christmas in July

Cinderella’s Castle at Christmas


Yes, it is July and I am already excited about Christmas.  It is time for those of you visiting Disney World this holiday season to start thinking about whether or not to go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  Disney World goes all out for the holiday season, and the Christmas party is no exception.  It truly is a Magical experience.


For those of you not familiar with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom, let me fill you in on the excitement.   It is a special night of holiday entertainment with Christmas shows, parades, fireworks, and more.  The Party requires purchase of a separate admission ticket.  Although the official holiday celebration is 7pm to midnight, guests are often permitted to enter the park as early as 4pm.

The spirit of the season can be captured throughout the park with all of the Christmas lights, decorations, towering Christmas trees, and Christmas music.  You will be in awe of Cinderella’s castle as it is magically transformed to an ice palace with thousands of beautiful twinkling lights. There are also wonderful holiday shows where some of your favorite Disney friends come to life.  Don’t miss “A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas” in Tomorrowland featuring Buzz Lightyear and the mischievous Stitch.  “Celebrate the Season” is performed at the castle stage starring Mickey and his pals.  Grab your complimentary hot cocoa, cookies, and apple slices and watch reindeer, toy soldiers, gingerbread men, Santa, and your favorite Disney characters as they make an appearance in the “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas Parade.“  I can’t stress enough just how magical this parade is.  The party also has a spectacular display of fireworks, Holiday Wishes, narrated by Jiminy Cricket and accompanied by Christmas music.  The party would not be complete without snow in the forecast.  If you are dreaming of a white Christmas, do not miss the magical snowfall on Main Street.


Santa wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

If you are looking for an unforgettable way to spend time with your family and friends this Christmas season, I highly recommend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  I cannot think of a better way to celebrate “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year”!
