    I'm staying at a WDW in Dec - I understand I can book Mickey's Very Merriest from June 30th, as my hotel reservation is linked - will this apply to UK residents trying to book - can I book online/through My Disney Experience, and from what time?

    Seasons greetings, SallyAnn!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sending us this festive question! As a big fan of the holidays myself, I am so excited that you decided to visit the Walt Disney World at that time of year. There is no better way to ring in the season, as Anna and Elsa would say! Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party makes your vacation unique and allows you to experience all of your favourite attractions - and more!

    Unfortunately, it is not an option for UK residents to purchase Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party online or on the My Disney Experience mobile app. I know this probably was not the answer you were looking for. However, this does not mean that you will not be able to celebrate the holidays at Magic Kingdom Park! One of the ways you can make these kinds of reservations is by working with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. Otherwise, I would recommend that you call a Disney representative as they will be able to help and answer all your questions.

    Now, SallyAnn, the good news is that the festive fun does not have to stop after your Christmas party! I always love to plan my Disney vacations around the EPCOT festivals, and EPCOT's Festival of the Holidays is one of my favourite offerings at the Walt Disney World Resort. Not only do you get to learn more about different cultures and traditions, but you also get to try holiday meals and treats from around the world. While we do not know which food items will be returning, some of my favourites included the Potato Latkes from L'Chaim! Holiday Kitchen and the Pumking Gingerbread Cheesecake from American Holiday Table. Also, I highly recommend watching the Candlelight Processional at night to listen to beautiful, live arrangements of your favourite Christmas songs. You will also be able to find special activities to celebrate the holidays at each of the parks, but I also highly recommend that you stop by some of the Resort hotels! My favourite Christmas tradition is to visit the gingerbread display at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Not only is the artistry and level of detail breathtaking, but you can even buy gingerbread and other festive treats from the gingerbread house!

    I hope this was helpful, SallyAnn, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever celebrating the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your magical vacation, please don't hesitate to reach out. As Minnie would say, the best kind of magic is the one that happens when we're all together!

    Have a happy, merry, holly, jolly, day,
