    Hi,just wanted to ask if the tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 2022 can be purchased separately & don’t require a Theme park admission ticket or reservations? We are staying offsite and don’t have Disney tickets but wanted Xmas party

    Season's greetings, Hayley! 

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so excited to celebrate being halfway to the holidays with fellow holiday-lovers like you, and I cannot wait to experience the magic of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party again. After all, there is no better way to ring in the holiday season than celebrating at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    When it comes to special events such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, they are special ticketed events that require tickets outside of valid theme park admission. Therefore, you do not need a theme park ticket or reservation to enjoy the party, only your Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party special event ticket! In fact, my number one recommendation to truly enjoy the party is to have a rest day at your hotel on the day of your Christmas party as they go pretty late in the night! You will be able to start buying your special events tickets on July 7th, 2022, so be sure to mark your calendar!

    Now, Hayley, the holiday chEAR doesn't have to stop after your Christmas party! One of my favourite things to do at the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season is to visit the gingerbread displays at select Disney Resort hotels. Indeed, talented Cast Members build veritable masterpieces every year out of gingerbread, frosting and chocolate. My personal favourite is the one at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, as you can even buy gingerbread and various holiday treats directly from the gingerbread display! I highly recommend watching Decorating Disney: Holiday Magic on Disney+ to get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look of this process. Also, the Merry Menagerie will be returning to Disney's Animal Kingdom again this year, and I could not be more excited! With these adorable animal puppets, you can experience the magic of Disney's Animal Kingdom and get up close to animal friends while listening to beautiful holiday music. 

    I hope this was helpful, Hayley, and that you will have the best day ever celebrating the holidays on your next Disney vacation! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. As Minnie would say, there is no better kind of magic than the one we make when we're all together!

    Have a happy, merry, holly, jolly day!
