    We e missed tickets for the Christmas Party and my daughter really wants to see the Christmas parade. Is there any chance it will be running on 12/23?

    Hey there, Chelynne! Welcome to planDisney

    I am so excited to know you'll be visiting Walt Disney World the week of Christmas. It is really a magical time to be at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Everything is dressed up in its holiday best and it is so festive and fun. I think you'll really enjoy it. My family and I have been visiting over Christmas for over 10 years now and I absolutely love it. 

    Typically, after the last Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, which is December 22nd this year, the Christmas parade and firework show continue during the day up until right after Christmas. There has been no official word that this will be the case. However, it has been that way for many, many years now and I don't see that changing. So I suspect you'll be able to enjoy the Christmas parade at Magic Kingdom Park on December 23rd while you are visiting. Be sure to keep an eye out for a very special Guest at the end of the parade. He's certainly a jolly old man. 

    On a party night, if I don't have a ticket, sometimes I'll head over to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. There are several areas there that make great viewing spots for the firework display. My favorite happens to be upstairs at Tambu Lounge. They have a really nice seating area and you can order some snacks and sips to enjoy during the show. It's a great view of Cinderella Castle from across the lake. 

    I hope you have fun while you are at Walt Disney World. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help!

    Happy holidays!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
