Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration
Feel holiday magic come alive in a jubilant new stage show that fills the air with music, laughter and shimmering snowflakes!
The biggest event held during the holidays is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party which takes place on select evenings at Magic Kingdom in November and December. It features exclusive holiday entertainment, snow falling on Main St., and complimentary cookies and hot cocoa.
Dates, cost, and times:
This is a special event with its own ticket.
2016 event dates are:
November 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15, 18, 27 and 29
December 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16, 18 and 22
People often ask about the least crowded parties and which days they should attend. November party dates will almost always be less busy than December dates, and Tuesdays are usually less crowded than parties offered on other days of the week.
Prices vary depending on the date and whether or not you purchase in advance.
Tickets are non-refundable, even if there’s bad weather. For this reason, I used to advise people to wait to get their party tickets until they got to Disney World so they see how the weather was going to be. However, many party dates sold out in the last couple of years so I now suggest buying them ahead of time if you’re pretty certain you want to attend.
The party events begin at 7 p.m. and end at midnight. People with event tickets can enter Magic Kingdom as early as 4 p.m.* to enjoy the park in its “regular” state before the party officially kicks off at 7. You do not need a regular park ticket to visit Magic Kingdom on this day if you have a party ticket and arrive at 4 or later.
*If you do not go to another park this day and enter Magic Kingdom at 4 p.m. with your party ticket, you can make FastPass+ reservations ahead of time for 4-7 p.m. FastPass+ isn’t available once the party officially begins at 7.
