Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
While in Orlando we wanted to go to Magic Kingdom, but didn’t want to deal with the normal crowds and chaos. What we found was a very special Disney event called Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a special event that runs November through December. Basically you get to go to the park after it closes and wander around in a Christmas themed version of the Magic Kingdom. All the rides are open with Christmas decorations and music everywhere. And all the food stands serve free hot chocolate and ginger bread cookies all night long.
There is of course the parade that goes down Main Street, with all the favorite Disney characters riding Christmas themed floats. They even make it snow during the parade, using what I believe is a kind of soap mixture. Being from Minnesota, it wasn’t quite the same, but the effect was nice.
So if you are in Orlando during this time and want to do a Christmas version of the Magic Kingdom with less crowds, and are willing to stay up late, I highly recommend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
