Over this Thanksgiving weekend, many of you have likely started the transformation of your homes to make them “merry and bright” for the holiday season. While decorating can seem like quite the undertaking, it is nothing compared to the conversion Walt Disney World® Resort Cast Members complete on the Magic Kingdom® Park. After months of planning, an autumn Main Street, U.S.A.® turns into a Christmas wonderland in just hours!
While many of us are trying to focus our attention on the Thanksgiving holiday just a couple days away, Mickey and his pals have already started celebrating Christmas! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is held on select nights through Dec. 21 inside the Magic Kingdom® Park.
The party features several exclusive entertainment options like Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, the Celebrate the Season show at Cinderella Castle, and the Holiday Wishes – Celebrate the Spirit of the Season nighttime fireworks show. Guests attending this year’s party will experience two new entertainment options. Club Tinsel will give the existing Disney character dance party over in Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe a new look. Also, the Kringle Crew will be entertaining the crowd on Main Street, U.S.A.® just before both parade times by teaching dance moves like the Candy Cane Twist and the Santa Shake.
Remaining party dates include Nov. 25, 27, 29, 30, Dec. 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18 20, and 21. The first three parties of the year sold out, so if you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, be sure to contact your Magic Maker® right away.
