Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party exclusive Disney photopass magic moments

The holidays at Walt Disney World are known for the extra dusting of magical theming that festoon the parks and resorts. It’s very photographic and Disney’s Photopass photographers are always there to assist you with a selfie or family portrait. At this year’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party you’ll be able to find a few extra tidings of joy in exclusive merry photo opportunities.

This year you’ll encounter Toy Soldiers from Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, Tinker Bell, Olaf, gingerbread man, and more.

There are also ‘magic shot’ opportunities featuring holly-jolly props like Tinker Bell in the lamp located near Beast’s castle in Fantasyland.

We also love the ‘magic shot’ animated videos, which are perfect for adding to your facebook page or other social media accounts. Don’t forget to visit old saint Nick for a special animated magic shot.

For Annual Passholders its included with your pass, but day visitors can also purchase Memory Maker pass. If you’re just attending the party, purchase Memory Maker One Day and apply the entitlement for the day you attend the party. You’ll also need the My Disney Experience app to see and download your photopass moments.

Hint: Although MVMCP, and all the fun, starts at 7pm, remember your ticket gets you in at 4pm.

We hope you find plenty of holiday joy at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is the holiday season’s must-do event

If you’re planning to spend some of the winter holiday season at Walt Disney World, you’ll want to make the yuletide extra gay by attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom. The special hard-ticket event transforms the park with special decorations, glittering holiday lights, fun character photos, snow on Main Street, U.S.A., and some of the best Disney entertainment you’ll see all year.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is only held on select nights: November 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 16, 25, 27 and 29; and December 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20 and 21. The party runs from 7 p.m.-midnight, but the big secret is that party ticket holders may enter the park as early as 4 p.m. to enjoy regular park offerings.

Some of our favorite party fun includes:

A Frozen Holiday Wish
Head to Sleeping Beauty castle by dusk this special show. Watch as royal sisters Anna and Elsa lead a celebration for their friends on the Castle Forecourt Stage that culminates in Queen Elsa using her incredible powers to transform Cinderella Castle into a shimmering ice palace for the holidays.

Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration
Later in the night, the Castle forecourt is transformed into Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration stage show. Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto, and many others who drop by on Mickey’s party dressed in their Christmas best, ready to ring in the season with holidays with carols, old and new.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
We’re already humming the main theme to the Christmas parade at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. From marching toy soldiers to dancing gingerbread me, from Disney characters in their holiday finest to Santa Claus, and presents and dancers galore. This parade is a visual holiday feast.

Holiday Wishes Fireworks– Celebrate the Spirit of the Season
Be sure to stick around for the event’s big dramatic conclusion. The special fireworks show set to holiday tunes will light up the sky with Christmas cheer.

Of course, this being Christmas, there will be hot cocoa and cookies and character greetings with characters in their holiday outfits including Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws and Scrooge McDuck. Plus there is event specific merchandise and the opportunity to dress up with your holiday flair!

Ticket prices vary by night, but start at $105 per event (or $89 if you’re an annual passholder).
