    My husband, 7 yr old son and I will be going on a Disney Cruise to the Caribbean 11/18-11/25/17. We arrive in FL the day before and would love to do a Disney Park, but know we won't have much time. Are the rides open during the Mickey Christmas Party?

    Hi Andrea,

    My family absolutely LOVES Disney Cruise Line! We have been very fortunate to have cruised with Captain Mickey on the 4 stunning Disney Cruise Line Fleet ships! I have to tell you that your family will be experiencing an INCREDIBLE 7-Night Very Merrytime Eastern Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral. So get ready for some yuleTIDE fun on the high seas!

    Like you, we typically arrive in Florida a day or two before our cruise departure date. That way we have some time to visit the Disney Theme Parks too. Since you'll only be staying for one night prior to boarding, I believe purchasing Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tickets is an excellent choice! You'll be very happy to hEAR that there are several rides open during the Magic Kingdom Park special holiday event. In fact, most of the park's attractions will be available to Guests until midnight.

    Here's the list of rides typically open during the party: Astro Orbiter, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station, Country Bear Jamboree, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Enchanted Tales With Belle, Haunted Mansion, "it's a small world", Jungle Cruise, Mad Tea Party, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor, Peter Pan's Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, Princess Fairytale Hall, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Swiss Family Treehouse, Stitch's Great Escape!, The Barnstormer, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh, Tomorrowland Speedway, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, and Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid

    Wishing you a most magical holiday celebration, both on land and at sea!
