    Are the Christmas parade and Christmas fireworks offered 12/23 through 12/25?

    Merry Christmas, Rachel! Thanks for sending a holiday-themed question to planDisney! These are some of my favorite questions to answer for Guests! And yours is a particularly good question to ask! Let’s get to your answer!

    Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks serve as the centerpieces of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party which is held at Magic Kingdom Park on select nights from November 9 to December 22, 2023. Guests must have a separate ticket to attend this special event. The event is closed to “day Guests.” But then something extra magical traditionally happens around December 23! Mickey and Minnie’s “gift” to Guests visiting Magic Kingdom Park (with a regular theme park ticket) from December 23 through late December usually get to enjoy the Christmas parade and fireworks!

    Rachel, while these special events typically take place during normal operating hours beginning on December 23, no plans have been announced…yet! You should continue to check the Walt Disney World Resort website for details about Magic Kingdom Park parades and fireworks. But if the past serves as a guide, I expect to see Santa, and Santa Goofy too, making their way down Main Street, U.S.A. during the Christmas parade beginning on December 23.

    Happy Planning (and Happy Holidays)!
