Get ready because Christmas has already arrived at Walt Disney World Resort. It’s too early you say? Nah. You simply can’t fit Disney’s Christmas spirit into only one month. Beginning tomorrow, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party kicks off at the Magic Kingdom Park with new merry magic shots and more!
While enjoying the party, make sure track down a Disney PhotoPass photographer in order to capture these special party only photo ops. Below are some of the ones you will find during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
You gotta love Christmas cookies. Capture a Mickey Christmas cookie in the Mickey Mouse Cookie Magic Shot available in Fantasyland, Adventureland, and Tomorrowland. Lift a giant candy cane above your head in the Candy Cane Magic Shot in front of Cinderella Castle and on the bridges leading to Liberty Square, Tomorrowland, and Fantasyland.
For many guests, the Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade is a tradition. What better way to celebrate the memories of the parade than adding a little of the parade to your photos. Watch as Toy Soldiers march right into your photo on Main Street U.S.A. or pose for photographers at the park entrance with a Magic Shot that includes loveable reindeer and a festive gingerbread man.
Look for your favorite Disney characters to join your photos too! On Main Street U.S.A. Tinker Bell dressed in her holiday’s best joins your photo while Olaf pops into photos taken on the bridges leading to Liberty Square, Tomorrowland, and Fantasyland.
Spark holiday romance with the Mistletoe Magic Shot or get a special Animated Magic Shot when you meet Santa Claus.
Also at various locations, look for photographers with holly-jolly props for you to include in your photos. One of my favorite merry photo offerings is the new Tinker Bell lantern. Find Tink and her lantern in Fantasyland near Enchanted Tales with Belle.
Don’t forget that the PhotoPass photographers will be on hand to capture magical memories at Character Experiences during the event.
Want to spread holiday cheer all throughout your home? If you purchase the Memory Maker One Day, apply the entitlement to the day you attend the party. You get the digital downloads of all your PhotoPass photos linked to your Disney account taken on the day of your choice. Memory Maker One Day also send photo downloads to your My Disney Experience app once you’ve linked at least one Disney PhotoPass photo to your account. Don’t worry if you forget to purchase the Memory Maker One Day before your trip, you can also purchase it inside Town Square Theater at Magic Kingdom Park.
Keep in mind that PhotoPass photos and any other digital content downloaded to your account (excluding annual pass holders) will expire 45 days from the date the photo was taken so remember to order special framed prints or save to your devices. Guests may request to extend the expiration date to 60 days from the date the photo was taken however there is a fee for this.
