    Hey Amanda thanks so much for the help about the Hoop-Dee-Doo Review! We're arriving and Dec. 2nd and thats a Christmas Party night. What characters come, what time can you get in, and what other special things can you do for my daughters sweet 16? Thanks

    Hi Patricia! Your daughter is going to have such an awesome Sweet Sixteen celebration at Walt Disney World! 

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party officially starts at 7 p.m.. Your party ticket doesn't guarantee you admission until that time, but sometimes guests are allowed in as early as 4 p.m. However, all the party festivities won't start until 7 p.m. The characters will be out in full force for the evening and they'll all be decked out in their holiday attire. Rest assured that you'll be able to see and pose for photos with Mickey, Minnie and all the main characters, as well as many other characters that are difficult to find in the parks during the day. The party features special holiday shows and a parade, and the park is beautifully decorated. There's complimentary hot cocoa and cookies and snow falling on Main Street U.S.A.!

    Be sure to note on your resort and all of your restaurant reservations that your daughter is celebrating her 16th birthday during this vacation. When Disney knows you're celebrating, you'll often receive special little surprises like a birthday phone call from a character or a special dessert at the end of a meal. You can obtain a Birthday button from Guest Services so that almost everyone she sees will wish her Happy Birthday! Your plan to attend the Hoop-Dee-Doo is a fantastic one! If you want some other special experiences, consider taking her on the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage or reserving a Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party.  Both offer wonderful views of the Magic Kingdom fireworks!

    Come visit me again at the Moms Panel if you need more help planning your daughter's Sweet 16 trip!
