    Hi! We are heading to Walt Disney World this holiday season. We don’t have tickets to the Christmas party, so wondering if we should get our Magic Kingdom day ON a Christmas Party day or on a non party day to have the whole day - considering crowds?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party can be a very special experience if it fits within your family's budget and schedule. My family is coming in November, and while we would love to go to the Christmas party, it is just not in the cards for us either.

    My advice, and our family's plan, is to visit the Magic Kingdom on a date when they are not hosting the party. While there is plenty to see and do elsewhere at Walt Disney World at night, like at the resorts, at Disney Springs, and at Disney's BoardWalk, we want to enjoy a full day, into the evening, at the Magic Kingdom. So rather than end our day at the park around 6 pm, we want to see it at night, in all its electrified glory. Then, on dates when the party is being hosted, we enjoy visiting other parks. My daughters are especially interested in visiting the bio-luminescent glow of Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park this year!

    If you get the chance, visit some of the resorts, including those on the monorail route, to see their holiday decorations. The gingerbread house that they will build in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is an impressive sight to behold!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
