    I'm staying at the All-Star Movie resort and will be attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Is there Disney bus transportation back to the resort after the party?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Heather! 

    It's the most wonderful time of the year at Walt Disney World® Resort during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This festive event is sure to put you in the holiday spirit - it's one of my favorite Disney World "extras." For information on what to expect during this event, select the highlighted link.

    Resort Bus Transportation operates on party nights as they do during normal park hours. You'll have up to one hour after the party ends to head to the Magic Kingdom bus stop for your return ride back to Disney's All-Star Movies Resort. 

    Here are a few of my top tips to maximize your time at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party:

    • Catch the second showing of Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, it tends to be considerably less crowded. My favorite viewing location is the Walt Disney World® Railroad Train Station. 

    • FastPass+ is not available during the party, so hit up your must-do attractions during the first parade.

    • Arrive early and grab a party guide map as soon as you enter. Then, enjoy an early dinner at Casey's Corner while you plan your evening. Party guests are often allowed entry into Magic Kingdom as early as 4:00pm - take advantage of the extra time. I personally like to have a late lunch/early dinner at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa so we can enjoy this beautiful resort in all its holiday splendor, then we head to Magic Kingdom on the Monorail. I also suggest grabbing a to-go cup of hot chocolate from the life-sized gingerbread house in the lobby on your way to the Monorail. 

    I hope this is helpful, Heather! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions you may have. I am here to help you plan a magical visit.
