    We are going to the Mickey's Christmas Party 12/4. What time are we allowed to arrive and how loud can we expect the light shows to be? We will have a 1 yr old and 2 boys on the Autism spectrum with us. Any advice welcome as this is our first visit.

    Hi, Heather!
    What an incredible first visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Since you have tickets to attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, you can enter Magic Kingdom Park starting at 4:00 PM. That will give you a chance to enjoy some of the standard attractions as the environment switches into party mode.

    When it comes to the big fireworks show, if your boys are sensitive to noise, I'd recommend bringing noise-cancelling headphones if you would like them to enjoy the fireworks. There is a combination of music and loud fireworks. It's beautiful but loud. 

    I hope you have a magical time at the parks. Disney World is a special spot for everyone!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
