    This will be my families very first Disney Vacation! My daughters and I are pretty huge Nightmare Before Christmas fans but I never hear anyone talking about the characters. We will be going to MVMCP and I was wondering,will any of the characters be there?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tiffany!

    One of the biggest draws of attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is the opportunity to see rare Disney Characters from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas; namely, Jack Skellington and Sally! Theirs is one of the most popular Special Disney Character Appearances at the Oh-So-Jolly Holiday Celebration. To ensure your daughters' wishes can come true, you must have a good strategy in place.

    My biggest tip is to arrive at Magic Kingdom Park late afternoon. Last year, Jack Skellington and Sally began to meet Guests two hours prior to the official start time of the party. The Pumpkin King and his best gal came out to greet Guests in Liberty Square around 5:00 p.m., so be sure to join their queue around 4:30 p.m. Cast Members will only allow Guests wearing party wristbands to line up for this elusive meet-and-greet opportunity. When it's your turn, you'll find both Jack and Sally are just dying to take pictures with your family!

    Disney Mom Tips: Don't miss Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade nor the Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season fireworks spectacular! Do look for products featuring your beloved characters before your trip. You might find them by downloading the shop Disney Parks app to you smartphone, shopping online at www.shopdisney.com or visiting your local Disney Store.

    Wishing your family an unforgettable Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!
