    I'm coordinating a family trip for a group of 20 (ages 3-80) for 12/26-1/2. If we couldn't all afford more than 2-3 day tickets, what parks do you recommend we visit? Add hopper/water park? Would the mikey christmas still be going on? Getting so ov

    Hi Michelle,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. Probably, you will not be able to see Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Usually, the last date is around December, 18. The 2016 dates wasn’t announced yet, but you should follow Disney Parks Blog to keep yourself informed. I advise you not to buy the Park Hopper option in your tickets. With kids and elderly people, the rush to commute to one park to another can be really stressful. I rather see one park attractions/shows nicely, them see only three or four attractions in each park, with the park hopper option. If you guys could visit three theme parks, I would go with Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Epcot. I wouldn’t go for a water park at this time of the year too, it can be very cold and unpleasant. Usually, one of the water park closes for refurbishments during winter and the other one stays opened. If you all want to go, my suggestion is to wait to decide based on the weather and then buy the tickets at the entrance. Create your account at My Disney Experience, coordinate all the FastPass+ and get a Memory Maker.

    Have a magical vacation!
