    Hi, im planning to go to Disney Orlando in December 2021. I saw there are some days with a special parade for Christmas, does the cost include being the park during the whole day? If I go a day that is not the Christmas special, are there fireworks/parade?

    A holly-jolly hello, Cindy!

    If I had to pick my favorite time to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth I would have to pick the holiday season. The decorations, special treats, and overall festive atmosphere really add an extra dose of pixie dust to an already magical vacation. 

    Cindy, it sounds like you are talking about Disney Very Merriest After Hours Event. This exclusive celebration features complimentary snacks, special entertainment, and best of all, reduced wait times for your favorite attractions!

    My absolute favorite part of Mickey's Very Merriest After Hours is Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks. Both the fireworks and the parade are so fabulous, my kids love to watch both of these events at home even in the height of summer. 

    If you choose to purchase tickets to this after-hours event, you will be able to enter the theme parks up to 2 hours before the party starts. So most days, you will be able to enter the parks at 7:00 pm. If you wish to spend the entire day in the Magic Kingdom, you will need to purchase a regular theme park admission ticket as well. 

    I hope that this answered your question, Cindy!

    Have a fa-la-la fabulous time!
