    Are there Christmas activities at Magic Kingdom other than A Very Mickey Christmas? I want my family to experience the snow falling and all that magic, etc. but is that only experienced during the separate Christmas ticket?

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Katie!

    Thank you for taking the time to send your very first question our way. It is a pleasure to help you plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I am happy to hear you will visit The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most magical time of the year. The Walt Disney World Resort will be celebrating the spirit of the holiday season from November 11 to December 31, 2023, and I cannot wait for you to enjoy all the festive fun during your Disney getaway!

    I have made beautiful memories and captured lovely photos with family and friends over the years while enjoying the classic “snowfall” on Main Street U.S.A. It seems that it only snows at Magic Kingdom Park during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, so if you would like to experience the “snow” during your visit, I highly recommend purchasing separate tickets for the party. The party is one of my favorite special events at the Walt Disney World Resort. I am sure you will make beautiful holiday memories with your family if you decide to attend. In fact, I prefer planning an evening enjoying the party instead of spending a day with a regular ticket at Magic Kingdom Park. 

    If you cannot attend the party, you will still get to enjoy the beautiful seasonal décor at Magic Kingdom Park, check out the brand new Frozen Holiday Surprise entertainment experience in front of Cinderella Castle, and the yuletide transformation of Jungle Cruise into Jingle Cruise. You will also find holiday cheer at the other theme parks, Disney Springs, and Disney Resort hotels. Do not miss the chance to celebrate holiday traditions from around the world at EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, check out Merry Menagerie at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, see the projection show on The Hollywood Tower Hotel, and spot Toy Story Land characters in their holiday attire at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and much more!

    I hope this information is helpful, Katie. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
