Tips for attending Walt Disney World Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2019. We have all the details including Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Dates and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Tickets.
Disclaimer: Disney hosted our family in exchange for my honest review of our experience at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
If you follow me you know we LOVE Disney. We have had three trips there in the last three months. Including our second trip to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party and a birthday trip for B that included a truly o Bippiti Boppiti boutique.
We have made Mickey’s Not so Scary Party and Very Merry Christmas Party an annual tradition for us now. If you want to get into the holiday spirit this is a must attend party!￼￼￼ There is so much to do at Magic Kingdom during both of the parties we find it best to agree as a family what we are going to focus on. They have:
- Special Character Greetings with many of your favorite Disney Characters dressed in their holiday best.
- Holiday Treats
- Rides with a Holiday Twist
- Event Merchandise
For Not So Scary Party we focused on riding the rides since the lines are so short. For Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party we focused on the entertainment like the parade, stage shows and fireworks.

Buy Your Tickets Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Ahead of Time
The party often times sells out. If it is not sold out, you may have to wait in a long line to buy your tickets. And let’s be honest this is a party you do not want to miss! If you buy your tickets ahead of time you can also book fast passes for your favorite rides from 4-7pm.
When You Arrive at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
The party officially starts at 7pm, but with your tickets you can come in as early as 4pm. When you arrive make sure you get your special Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party bracelet. I made this mistake our first year and half way through the night I had to go back to the front gate to get mine.
If you are already in the park during the day look for the band distribution signs throughout the park so you can get your band.
Make sure to grab a map that will show you where you can find holiday treats, find characters and the times for the entertainment.
Follow the cast members down the the right hand side. It was a section of the park we went to Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween. There are great photo opportunities and you get special Santa cookie that was amazing.
Entertainment at A Very Merry XMas party
Pro Tip: We get dinner to go and set up a picnic in front of the castle so we have good seats for A Frozen Holiday Wish, Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration.
A Frozen Holiday Wish
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas Parade
Christmas themed parade includes all your favorite characters and SANTA. The parade begins at Frontierland and goes around and down Main Street. Make sure you get your spot early. The parade route filled up quickly. Our favorite place to sit is right in front of the castle or to the side along the curb. They offer a parade at 8:30pm and 11pm.
Pro Tip: If you can stay up late enough the 11pm parade is significantly less crowded.
Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration
This stage show is my favorite one yet!!! It includes almost everyone of Mickey’s friends and classic Christmas songs that have you smiling and dancing the night away. The night we went they had 4 showings at 7:40pm, 9:25pm, 10:30pm and 11:55pm.
