The holiday season can be busy, stressful, and even overwhelming for many people. There’s so much to do, so many people to see, and the days get shorter and shorter. Sometimes, you need a little magic to get back some holiday cheer.
So… do you want to do something truly magical this holiday season?
As one of the seven best attractions in Orlando, Walt Disney World has always been a place of whimsical joy for children and adults alike. Now, the House of Mouse is living true to its word of being the most magical place on earth by offering a new way to celebrate the winter holiday: Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
What is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party?
From November 8th to December 22nd, Disney lovers have a chance to celebrate Christmas with Mickey. The event takes place in Magic Kingdom Park Walk Disney World Resort that begins at 7 PM and runs until midnight. Guests will be able to meet their favorite Disney characters in their holiday attire. Guests may even spy a few underappreciated faves such as Jack Skellington (Sandy Claws) or Scrooge McDuck.
Attractions to See
What’s a trip to Disney World without riding the rides? Even during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas, several popular rides are still available for you to enjoy! Some must-see choices include Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Space Mountain, and more. You should also make the time to catch the Christmastime Parade, which features St. Nick on his sleigh.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party runs until midnight, and after hours of fun, you will want to skip catching a cab or driving a distance for home. Luckily, there are several comfortable hotels in Orlando, Florida, near Disney World that you can rely on.
