Getting to experience Disney with the family is Magical! Getting to experience it during Mickey’s Very Merry Party is even more so. A couple of weeks ago my family and I were invited to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Party at Disney World and we had an incredible night.
If I had to choose, I would go to Disney for this event every year! Here are 5 Reasons We Love Mickey’s Very Merry Party…
It is less crowded
Only a certain number of tickets are sold for this “event”. At 7pm, only those with a specific band can ride the rides, so most families leave.
The wait time for rides is about 5 – 10 minutes
Because they only sell a certain number of tickets for the Mickey’s Very Merry Party event, Disney is at about half of its capacity (if I’m not mistaken). That being the case, there are a lot less people riding the rides. We were able to ride every ride the kids wanted to do without waiting more than 5 – 10 minutes (except for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which was about a 20 minute wait time). Space mountain, 7 minute wait. Toy Story, 5 minute wait. That’s unbelievable!
We were able to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad 4 times with about a 5 minute wait time.
You’re not dealing with Florida heat
Florida heat can be brutal! Mickey’s Very Merry Party starts at 7pm, so you are not dealing with Florida heat (which often time makes waiting in line worse). We actually had to use our jackets…yep, we had to dust them off and use them! My husband was VERY happy about this.
Free holiday treats
I know, I know. I should have started with this one. Throughout the night you can get your fill of FREE hot chocolate, cookies, apple juice and apple slices. All you need to do is look for the specified areas to get them. Last year they handed out Snickerdoodle Cookies and this year it was Sugar Cookies. I’m hoping next year, they have Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Christmas Decorations & Fun
If you love Christmas decorations, you’re going to love Mickey’s Very Merry Party because they are all around you. Plus, there is a Christmas parade that allows you to see all of your favorite characters AND Santa! There are also photo opportunities with Disney characters dressed up in Christmas attire
My family and I love Mickey’s Very Merry Party! Not only do we get to enjoy Disney with all of the benefits highlighted above, we also got to create special memories together which is really what being at Disney is all about.
Note: My family and I were invited to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Party Media Event. However, ALL opinions are my own.
