The 7 Most Magical Tips for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
1. Plan Early
If you intend on attending the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party I would get your tickets as soon as possible. Why? Because it is an event in which you need a specific ticket, starting at $105 each. These tickets are limited. Plus, they go quick. So, I would highly recommend purchasing in advance if at all possible. EZ Dis Instant Travel Specialists can help to book this special ticketed event and more.
2. Come Early
Although the party doesn’t start until 7:00 PM guests can enter the park as early as 4:00 PM. I would highly recommend getting there as early as you can. See I know personally. For this reason, we got to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party much earlier than the start time of 7 pm. We plan on doing the same this year, as well.
3. Don’t Miss the Special Events
During the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, there are special events that only take place during the actual party. For starters, Jungle Cruise turns into Jingle Cruise. So, they make things more festive and merry throughout the whole ride. Not all attractions are open during the party but I would definitely recommend not missing out on the Jingle Cruise during your holiday party experience.
Plus, it snows on Main Street. There is also a Christmas Party fireworks show, as well as a party themed parade. There are even special characters, such as the princesses with her princes only out during this Christmas party. These characters are available for photos and autographs.
4. Grab a Complimentary Snack
You can find complimentary apple slices and apple juice at cookie and cocoa stations. This food offering is another excellent way to make the most of your money and get yourself a healthy snack for you and the kiddos.
But you can also get special holiday cookies, snowman pretzels, hot cocoa, apple cider and snow cones for your sweet tooth, as well. All of these snacks are FREE and included in the price of your party ticket.
5. Meet Santa
You can’t possibly attend the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party without meeting Santa Claus! You can find him in front of the Candy Cane Garden. Here you can also take a picture for a lasting memory. The Candy Cane Garden is iconic, and it does make for a beautiful photo for a memento of your trip!
6. Get a Piece of Exclusivity
As I stated before the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party has exclusive merchandise, souvenirs, and food! I would highly recommend making sure you get your hands on some of this exclusive merch! You can find ornaments, pins, and all sorts of other pieces that are solely exclusive to the party.
7. Dress for the Occasion
After all, it is a Christmas themed party. Even Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater is dressed for the occasion!
So, wearing some holiday cheer goes a long way. Whether you wear a holiday-themed sweater or shirt or even a Santa hat, you can’t go wrong.
