    Only 7 days to go! Could someone please give me a plan of action for MVMCP. We have never been to the party before. I do not want to miss anything by not knowing what to expect. 1st parade or 2nd? Characters? Dance parties? Show? Rides? HELP - BIG PLANNER

    Hi Dixie,

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) is super fun! Your trip is super close & I love that you're planning ahead. A plan of action timing it with the scheduled events will help you maximize your time & get the most out of this event.

    I just saw a map of the attractions & special events for this year's party. Here is the schedule of special events: 
    • Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade (8:15 & 10:30 p.m. - the 2nd parade is less crowded)     
    • Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season (10:30 p.m.)
    • A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show (7:45, 8:45, 9:55, 10:50 & 11:45 p.m.)
    • Celebrate the Season Show on the Castle Forecourt Stage (7:45, 10:05 & 11:20 p.m)
    • Two character dance parties (at the Diamond Horseshoe in Frontierland & Cosmic Ray's in Tomorrowland) 
    • Special character meet & greets throughout the park held 7 p.m. - 11:30 p.m. - locations will be marked on your Special Guide Map. There are usually some characters out that aren't always available at other times & we love taking advantage of getting pictures with them
    Not all of the attractions are operating during MVMCP but you'll find that the most popular ones will be open. I don't have enough room to list them all in this answer. Visit me again & I'll be happy to list them out for you or let me know if you have any questions about specific attractions.

    When my family attends MVMCP, we pick 2 or 3 attractions we want to do the most & then spend the other time focusing more on the special events that we can't see or do any other time of the year. 

    Wishing you many magical holiday memories :-) Allison
