Tips for attending Walt Disney World Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 2023. 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 before the big C. We are so happy to be back!!! You can see all our highlights here. 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 on 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 were so short. For Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, we focused on entertainment like the parade, stage shows, and fireworks.

Buy Your Tickets Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Ahead of Time
The party often sells out, and as of right now, there is only one date left that is not sold out.
When You Arrive at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
The party officially starts at 7pm, but you can come in as early as 4pm with your tickets. When you arrive, get your special Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party bracelet. I made this mistake our first year, and halfway through the night, I had to return 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, characters, and the times for the entertainment.
Follow the cast members down the right-hand side. It was a section of the park we went to for Mickey's Not-so-Scary Halloween. There are great photo opportunities and you get a special Disney ornament for everyone in your party.
Entertainment at A Very Merry Xmas party
The entertainment is AMAZING!!!
Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas Parade
The 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 in front of the castle or along the curb. We sat closer to the park entrance this year, and it was a great view. They offer a parade at 8:30pm and 11pm.
Pro Tip: The 11pm parade is significantly less crowded if you can stay up late enough. We did the earlier one to make sure Slade did not miss it.
Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration
This stage show is my favorite one yet!!! It includes almost every one 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, 10:35pm, and 11:55pm.
Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show
Minnie Mouse invites you to take in a sparkling, yuletide fireworks display over the castle. You do not want to miss this new fireworks display at 10pm
Club Tinsel Dance Party
This stage show in Tomorrowland includes Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, and Chip and Dale for a dance party.
Disney Junior Jingle Jam
This is in Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe. Dance the night away with Disney Junior Characters like Timon, Vampirina, Fancy Nancy and Doc McStuffins from 7 PM to Midnight.
New Frozen Holiday Surprise
Join "Frozen" friends as they find the holiday season with fun festive surprises. The show is at 8:15 PM, but they also have a show before the party starts that we recommend going to.
