Christmas time at Disney World, those are five words that will bring a smile to anyone’s face, even my husband’s. When I bring up going to an attraction as a family, my husband is typically not as excited as we are…not because he doesn’t like the destination but because he is not a fan of standing in long lines in the heat surrounded by a ton of people (which I totally understand). However, when it comes to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, he is all for it. So, I asked him why he loves going and he came up with a list. That being said, here are…
5 Reasons Dads Love Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
It’s less crowded
Since it is a special event that requires a special ticket purchase, the park is less crowded once the event officially starts at 7pm.
It’s cooler out
It’s a night time event which means that the sun is gone and you and your family aren’t melting under the sun (which is something that makes my happy husband less happy).
Because it is a special event, not only are there less people in the park but only people with special wrist bands can ride after 7 pm. Both of which means there are smaller lines and less waiting time for our favorite rides (which is a blessing, especially with small kids).
Free hot chocolate
Not only do you get FREE hot chocolate at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party but you also get FREE cookies!!!! Oh, they also have free apple juice and apple slices. This in itself is a great reason to go.
Special parade & fireworks
You and your family get to enjoy special fireworks and a Christmas parade complete with a visit from Santa.
Everyone loves Disney world but with it all decked out in Christmas decoration and all of those added benefits, who can resist taking the family to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! For more information, or to purchase your tickets, visit their website.
My family and I had a great time and I am ever so thankful that we were invited to attend their special media night.
