Hello VFFs! I am so exited to share my first impressions about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2018. We went to the Magic Kingdom to get a good dose of Holiday cheer and to celebrate my birthday. It was as magical as you would expect it to be. So many things to do, so many things to see! If you are wanting to know more about it, here are my personal highlights and tips for you.
First of all, let’s talk about what is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party about. This is a special ticketed event were you get to enjoy Magic Kingdom park and attractions from 7pm- 12am. During this holiday event, they have special events, specialty foods, complimentary treats and more. They decorate the park so festive bringing everyone a great dose of Christmas cheer. Their decorations are so jolly and adorable like this gigantic red ornament. The park decorations are perfect for family pictures and for those like me who do it for the Gram! They have many photographer stations for guest to take beautiful Christmas pictures.
Next, I will have to tell you that people were dressed up in their must festive holiday outfits. Scrolling down main street you would see all the beautiful light up Mickey ears that are exclusively from this special event. Families and friends were dressed up with matching pijamas. Yes, pijamas! Why didn’t I think of that? Ugly sweaters everywhere giving this event an extra Feliz Navidad vibes.
Now is time to talk about the free stuff! Through out the park they have giant candy canes to let guest know they can get complimentary treats. They have them station all through out the park. This is where you can get your free cookies and drinks such as hot chocolate, eggnog, apple cider and even snow cones! This year they have the cookies individually wrapped so guest have the option to save them for later. You can get as many as you want and it was nice to have the option to take it home. There is so much to do and so many treats to catch that the time for it all flies by.
In addition to their complimentary treats, they have specialty treats available for purchase. If you are a foodie like me, I would recommend you to watch this video from DFB Guide because they share all the specialty treats and show you where to get them so you know more about what to expect.
It’s time to talk about the shows! Disney characters come out to share their holiday spirit all over the park. They have castle shows, Tomorrow Land parties, and of course the amazing holiday parade. So much fun to watch! It’s really hard to pick what to do with so much going on. I almost forgot to tell you that they even make it snow on Main St! I want to go back and do it all over again!
Here is the beautiful Parade! It was so much fun to see all the characters dancing on Main St. The best spot to watch the parade is near the castle! They have two parade rounds which is perfect because you can enjoy all the other events and still see the parade.
I saved the best for last! The fireworks show was incredible! It felt like they were going off all night. Very Merry Disney Magic I would say. I would definitely recommend my VFFs to go experience it for yourself. The park gets very packed, but for some reason the lines to the rides are very short. We were able to ride the 7 dwarf ride with a wait of 15 minutes. The Tea Party ride had no wait time. It was just so much fun to be at Disney at night celebrating my birthday. This experience will be something I will forever be grateful for!
