    Are Cinderella's Castle lights lit up the same way on Mickey's Merry Xmas Party as all other nights from Nov. 25-30? I'm wondering if it is worth the extra money for Mickey's Xmas Party if I am already visiting MK another day and night. Is it crowded?

    Hi Renee!

    That Castle Lighting Ceremony takes place before the start of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, so you do not have to be attending the party to see that.  The party, however, is a lot of fun and offers a special parade, special fireworks, dance parties, and special stage shows.  Attendance at the party is limited, but it can still be crowded depending on the exact night.  The party starts at 7pm and runs until midnight.

    Unfortunately, I can not tell you if it is worth it.  Each guest will have a different opinion.  I do suggest trying it once, however, if you have never tried it before.  I personally love the party and it always puts me in the holiday spirit.

    Have a magical day, and please write back with more questions!
