Last December, my family and I took a vacation to Disney World. Out of all the trips we had made, we had never seen Cinderella Castle in Christmas lights and we REALLY wanted to see Cinderella Castle in lights. Since we were there during December we decided that we also needed to go to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.
When you go through the ticket check for the Christmas Party you will be given a wristband that allows you access to rides, character meets, and the snacks. You can also pick up a party guide. This is a copy of the 2013 guide. It shows you where you can meet special characters and where you can get cocoa and cookies.
So what are the main hi-lights of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party?
1) SNOW on Main Street USA
I cannot describe how fun it was to see the snow falling on Main Street. The snow got everyone in the Christmas spirit and brought out the kid in every one!
2) Cinderella Castle all lit up
Seeing Cinderella Castle on your very first day in Magic Kingdom is magical, but seeing Cinderella Castle in Christmas lights is breath taking. I couldn't stop taking photos of the Castle. It was Gorgeous and well worth a trip to WDW during November or December! I think every Disney fan, needs to see it in Christmas lights at least once in their lifetime!
3) Rare character meet-n-greets
For Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, some rare characters make a special appearance. The lines for these characters can be really long, so you might want to decide in advance if you want to wait in line. The longest line we saw was for the 7 dwarfs....all together.
Other characters that were:
Aladdin and Abu
Snow White and her Prince
Rapunzel and Flynn
Cinderella and Prince Charming, Aurora and Phillip, Scrooge McDuck, and several others were also in attendance. We didn't want to devote the whole party time to characters, so we did not see them all.
4) Special Party Parade
The parade for the Christmas party was a lot of fun.
5) Special Fireworks
The Fireworks at WDW are always the hi-light of a trip...but the Christmas Party fireworks were over the top. It was fun to see them a little different. There is also a special show on the castle before the fireworks and that was amazing....
6) Glow with the Show Ears
These new Mickey ears are a MUST have for any night time show. The ears will light up at anytime, but during the night time shows they flash to the beat of the music. It is really fun to watch.
