    I bought tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas for Nov. 29th. Is there a schedule of events, specific times for activities or how do we know what is going on when from 7-12? Should we come just for the party or should we buy passes for the entire day?

    Greetings Jeff! You are going to love Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party which is a great way to get into the Holiday spirit with all of the beautiful Christmas decorations, festive Christmas music, complimentary hot cocoa and cookies, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, and magical snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A. ! All guests will receive a special event guide for the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party once you enter Magic Kingdom Park which will include parade and show times, attractions and dining locations that will be open, and Character Dance Parties. There will most likely be an event guide posted on the official Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party webpage in November after the parties have started for the Holiday season. I saved my event guide from the 2011 Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party that I attended last year and Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade was featured at 8:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. and "Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season" fireworks spectacular was at 9:30 p.m. Please know that parade and show times are subject to change this year. Guests may enter Magic Kingdom Park with their Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party special admission ticket beginning at 4:00 p.m. To be honest, I would not purchase Magic Your Way Tickets for the day if you have young children. My family attended Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party last week and enjoyed a relaxing day at our Disney Resort and then arrived at Magic Kingdom Park at 4:00 p.m. I was worried that my four children would not be able to last until midnight if we had toured the parks beginning first thing in the morning. Based on my own personal experience, we have always found the second parade to be less crowded and have experienced many attractions during the first parade. I hope this helps!  Please feel free to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a Magical and Merry night at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, Jeff!
    Happy Planning,
