Normally I am very… intense… about keeping the holidays separate. Celebrate Halloween before you move on to Thanksgiving! Gather with family for Thanksgiving before you prepare for Christmas! The exception to my rule? Buying Disney tickets in advance. That’s right, tickets for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party are on sale now, for select dates from November 9 to December 22.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a “hard ticket event” which means you do need to buy a party-specific ticket to be able to attend. Magic Kingdom will close early on Party days, and guests with tickets will receive a wristband as they come in.
Disney puts on specially themed performances and parades during these Parties. In between shows, you can enjoy a sit down dinner at Be Our Guest, Cinderella’s Royal Table, or Crystal Palace (advance reservations strongly recommended!). If you’d prefer something lighter, there are dessert packages – enjoy a delicious holiday spread and have a reserved viewing area for the fireworks show. I’m irrationally terrified of fireworks, but I would still love to do this one year.
One of my family’s favorite perks to these special events is the character meet ‘n greets. Sometimes you will get a chance to meet a Disney character who isn’t usually out, or you can meet with characters in special holiday attire! Bonus points if you’re in matching outfits!
We won’t be at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party this year, but I hope you get to go and have fun! One year we will join in the festivities too.
