Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

Add some very to your merry at the veriest, merriest Christmas party of the season. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom hosts 21 nights of yuletide cheer from Nov. 7 - Dec. 22, 2016. From 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. during select nights at Magic Kingdom park, this annual ticket event will bring Christmas joy to guests of all ages with festive decorations, towering Christmas trees, and wintry wonderful entertainment.

Beginning at 7 p.m. (after regular park hours), guests with special event tickets can enjoy the spectacular holiday splendor, along with complimentary cookies and hot cocoa, and snow flurries on Main Street, U.S.A. Special holiday entertainment during the event includes Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas! Dance Party, "Celebrate the Season" musical stage show starring favorite Disney characters, and "Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season" fireworks spectacular.

New this year in Tommorrowland, the acclaimed contemporary a cappella group VoicePlay gives guests an unforgettable holiday concert experience. VoicePlay, who appeared on the TV show "The Sing-Off," will share their incredible vocal harmonies and holiday cheer between performances of " A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas" at the Rockettower Plaza Stage.

Disney characters dressed in their Christmas best will be available for meet and greets throughout the park. In addition, don't miss Queen Elsa from "Frozen" as she uses her incredible powers to transform Cinderella Castle nightly into a glistening ice palace for the holidays during "A Frozen Holiday Wish" castle lighting show.

Also for the holiday season, the iconic Jungle Cruise will temporarily transform into "Jingle Cruise" for Magic Kingdom guests. Festive decor in the attraction queue and boathouse gives guests a bit of Christmas cheer. The Jingle Cruise boats each are given a unique holiday name, and the Skippers share a slew of seasonal holiday jokes throughout the tour.

Pace yourself!

I'm not sure I want to spend the money for MVMCP. Is it a must-see?

If you are on a budget, there is no need to attend MVMCP. Most all the decorations are out during normal operating hours. What you will end up missing (during the first half of December) is the Christmas Parade and special fireworks.

Trivia Information regarding MVMCP

The very first MVMCP was held on December 16, 1983.
