Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Family Preview Night

The Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom hosted Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Family Preview Night.  We were there to experience all that this special party event has to offer.  Here is our overview.

We received a complimentary giant Santa Claus Cookie when we arrived and that was just the beginning!  Complimentary treat stations were signified with a glowing air-filled peppermint stick.  Beverages included hot cocoa, apple juice, sparkling cider and eggnog.  Sweet edible treats were Cookies, Snowman Shaped Soft Pretzels, Sno-cones, and Dove Chocolates.  Our personal favorites were the Ginger Molasses Cookies and Eggnog.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party has a number of fun family photo Magic Shots.  You know you have a winner when even your Tween wants to participate in fun family photos!


Characters are located at meet-and-greet stations all around the park.  We really enjoyed interacting with those fun-loving Country Bears as they roamed around Frontierland!

We were fascinated as we watched Elsa transform Cinderella’s Castle into a beautiful Ice Castle.  What a stunning transformation this is.                              See the transformation for yourself here:



One of the most magnificent parts of the Mickey’s Very Merry Chistmas Party Family Night was the Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade.  We saw many of our favorite characters, dancing reindeer and Santa Claus.  The music from the parade is lovely and we found ourselves singing along.

Holiday Wishes Fireworks display are incredible.  We appreciated that these fireworks seemed to be all around us!  If you are even remotely nostalgic about the original Wishes Fireworks, that were retired earlier this year, you will love this show.

We adore the Walt Disney World Cast Members!  All evening long, they were ready with a smile, a bit of conversation and a bit of fun.  You will definitely walk away with a smile after interacting with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Cast Members.

Party merchandise this year is wonderful.  Our little one just had to have the 2017 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Dancing Reindeer Shirt with long sleeves and hood.  The material is very soft and this is now her favorite shirt.

Everywhere we looked, we saw the Magic Kingdom all aglow.  Even the Pirates of the Caribbean took on it’s own festive glow.  We really enjoyed standing on either end of Main Street USA to see the glow of the lights and the buildings come to life while music played.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is the kind of event that lets you gather and connect with a true Family Night gathering.  The event has something to offer all ages.  We have not laughed, sang and danced together like that in a long time.  A very special thank you to the Walt Disney World Team for understanding the need for families to connect and for creating this wonderful holiday party that encourages families to gather together for the Holiday Season.
