    When will the first Christmas parade at the MK occur in 2017 outside of the Christmas parties?

    Hi Greta,

    Did you know that as of today, there are only 224 days until Christmas? It sounds like you look forward to the holidays just as much as I do, and there is certainly nothing better than celebrating the season at Disney!

    Standing on Main Street, U.S.A. with a cup of steaming hot cocoa, watching the "snow" fall as Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade glides by is one of my favorite holiday activities to enjoy at Walt Disney World Resort. This festive Parade featuring your favorite Disney characters, and even a cameo from Santa himself, is sure to delight and get you humming along with those classic holiday tunes. It's a sure fire way to put everyone in the Christmas spirit!

    The Parade will kick off this year on November 9, 2017, during the debut Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, and run select nights coinciding with the Party up until December 22, 2017 when the final Party wraps. While this year's entertainment schedule for December is not yet posted, in past years, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade has then been shown at Magic Kingdom each afternoon from December 23 until December 31. Please be sure to consult the Park Hours and Entertainment Calendar in another month or so to confirm what might be in store this year. I would definitely be willing to bet you a bag of Gingerbread Popcorn that it will likely be showing again this yEAR!

    Happy Holidays!
