    Will the Christmas lights be turned on in Magic kingdom even if the Party isn’t happening on that day?

    Hello, Rocio thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question, and I am glad to help you with this. 

    “The Most Magical Place on Earth” is a fantastic place to visit during the most wonderful time of the year. Magic Kingdom Park is dressed in tinsel, Christmas light displays, and sometimes snow. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a specially ticketed event where you can see all of your favorite characters in their holiday best. There are special opportunities for pictures with them. The Christmas Tree at the end of Main Street U.S.A. is always lit up and so are all the other lights inside all the parks even on days where there is no Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. There are special shows and everyone’s favorite holiday parade. Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade features the cutest reindeer and nutcrackers. But the end of this parade has the big guy himself! Santa Claus stops by to wave to all the guests to finish this march to celebrate the holidays. 

    If you are visiting EPCOT make sure to enjoy the Cookie Stroll while the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays is entertaining guests all over World Showcase. This Cookie Stroll has cookies you will be thinking about for months. Well, at least I think about them for months. There is usually a Linzer Tart that I am willing to take flights to Florida to enjoy. 

    I hope this is the information you were hoping to hear. If you have any other questions about your holiday visit stop by and we will be happy to help. 

    Have a magical stay,
