    We are going to be at Disney World during Christmas 2013 :) Planning to spend Christmas Day at Magic Kingdom. Since the special Christmas parade will take place that day, is it worth buying tickets to Mickey's Christmas Party for the week before?

    Ruchi, the hundreds of Christmas trees, thousands of poinsettias, and zillions of lights decorating the parks and resorts create a fabulous holiday wonderland of Walt Disney World at Christmas. Expect this holiday to be absolutely fabulous.

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is WAY more than a holiday parade. Snow falling on Main Street, U.S.A., streams of lights cascading over Cinderella Castle, complimentary hot chocolate and cookies, characters dressed in holiday finery, Holiday Wishes fireworks, and more make for a festive, memorable evening. Typically you can enter the park as early as 4:00 pm so your ticket buys you loads of park time, rides on most popular attractions, and a view of Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade. 

    Even if seeing marching tin soldiers, dancing elves, and gingerbread men parading through the Magic Kingdom is your main desire, you might be better off watching the Christmas parade at MVMCP. The Magic Kingdom is a highly desired destination on Christmas Day, so crowds will be much lighter at the party making finding a spot to see and enjoy the parade much easier.  

    Enjoy your Christmas with Mickey!
