    I am going to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party this year and we are considering dining reservations for diner, do the characters in the dining locations, i.e. The Crystal Palace, dress up in holiday attire or are they in their regular attire?

    Hi Sabrina!

    Thanks for your question. Of all of Disney World's many special events, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party has to be at the top of our family's all-time magical experiences. From the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, to the snow falling in Main Street, U.S.A., to the complimentary cookies and hot chocolate at locations throughout Disney's Magic Kingdom, it truly becomes a Winter Wonderland and is the perfect capstone to a magical holiday season!

    Although you will find Disney characters adorned in special Christmas attire at the parades, performances, and select Meet and Greets throughout the park, it has been our experience that the characters are typically dressed in their regular attire at character dining restaurants during the party. It is possible you may find Pooh or Tigger with a Santa Claus cap on at The Crystal Palace, but for the most part, they're normally dressed in their regular iconic attire.

    May your trip to Disney be filled with wonder and magic this holiday season!
