Halloween is over and that can only mean one thing…..the holiday season is upon us! One of my favorite Disney World traditions is the annual Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party held at the Magic Kingdom and believe it or not the first one is this Sunday, November 8th! This amazing party will be held on select nights through December 18th, so make sure you get your tickets now before dates start selling out! This is a Christmas Party that cannot be missed!
Earlier this month we were told that Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother would be back to start the party but today we learned that she has stepped aside to allow Queen Elsa from Arendelle the honors once again this year! The night begins with Elsa, Anna, Olaf and Kristoff as they perform “A Frozen Holiday Wish” on the Castle Forecourt Stage! It is during this special performance that Elsa presents her gift to the kingdom and transforms Cinderella’s castle into a glistening ice palace right before your eyes! Truly a sight to behold!
Mickey, Minnie and the rest of the gang are ready for another season of exciting live entertainment and party fun! If you love gingerbread men, elves, reindeer and even marching solders, then “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade” needs to be part of your plans! This very special holiday parade will have it snowing on Main Street, U.S.A. and ends with a very special guest in a sleigh (Ho, ho, ho!) not to mention some other beloved guests! You can even visit with Santa at Town Square!
There is entertainment and fun happening throughout the park during the entire event, like select locations offering Cookies and Cocoa! If you love music and holiday songs, you need to head over to Tomorrowland where you will be able to see a performance of “A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas” on the Rockettower Plaza Stage! Once the show ends, make sure you stay where you are and check out the amazing a capella group VoicePlay! This acclaimed group has appeared on “The Sing-Off” and will entertain you with unbelievable harmonies and incredible “music without music” sounds that will leave you speechless! They will be singing their way into your hearts in between performances of “A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas”, both are a must do while at the party!
You may think that this is enough to make the party unforgettable, but there is more! Check out Club Tinsel, a toe tapping dance club that takes over Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe with appearances by Phineas and Ferb! If you prefer live performances, you can check out “Celebrate the Season”. This magical event will even have all of your favorite characters (some hard to find!) stationed throughout the park dressed in their holiday finest ready to snap a special picture with you and your family! As the magical evening comes to an end you will need to open your ears and look to the sky as music and fireworks take over for a special showing of “Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season”!
