Join Mickey Mouse and friends for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Disney World Orlando.  Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party takes place on select nights at the Magic Kingdom and is filled with live entertainment, dazzling fireworks and a merry holiday parade.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a special after-hours event that promises jolly fun for everyone. The event features an exclusive holiday fireworks extravaganza – Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season and the enchanting Castle Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle. Character greetings, complimentary cookies and hot cocoa and a magical snow fall on Main Street, U.S.A., are all part of the experience. Live entertainment featuring your favorite Disney Characters is also planned.  Note the Holiday Wishes fireworks show is scheduled for 9:30pm, while the Celebrate the Season show occurs at 7:45pm, 10:00pm and 11:20pm.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is a highlight of the event, as it features a special appearance by Santa Claus himself. It also showcases the various festive moods of the holiday season, showcasing themes such as Friends & Family, Winter Wonderland, Fairy Tale Christmastime, Christmastime Sweets and Mr. & Mrs. Claus. The parade is presented at 8:15pm and 10:30pm each night of the party.  Cinderella’s Castle enchants visitors as it is covered in thousands of twinkling lights, covering the castle in a dazzling “blanket of ice” for a wintry effect.
