    For the MVMCP, are characters dressed in holiday attire in afternoon 4pm? Also, is Main Street Trolley Show in late afternoon? Can I meet Tinker Bell in afternoon or during party? Princess/Princes out at 4?

    Hi, Michelle!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The holiday season is one of my favorite times to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, and I cannot think of a better way to get into the holiday spirit than attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!  In my personal experience, I have been able to enter Magic Kingdom Park with my ticket to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party a couple of hours before the party activities actually begin, usually around 4:00 p.m.  While special event experiences such as visiting your Disney pals in their holiday attire usually don't begin until the advertised starting time for the party, you can still take advantage of the regular daytime activities that Magic Kingdom Park has to offer as soon as you enter the park.

    Although tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party are already on sale, all of the details regarding party events and character appearances will most likely be announced much closer to the holiday season.  Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest news and announcements. Once you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, you can pick up a party map and times guide to be sure you don't miss out on any of your must-do experiences.

    If you wish to know show times or information about character appearances when you first arrive at Magic Kingdom Park prior to the start of the party, simply grab a paper copy of the times guide or consult your My Disney Experience mobile app.  Typically the Main Street Trolley Show takes place in the mornings, but check your times guide for the particular day of your visit to be sure.  Character appearances are subject to change at any time, but currently, Tinker Bell visits with guests at the Town Square Theater during regular park hours.  At this time, Fairytale Hall is the perfect place to meet some of your favorite princesses, and various other character experiences take place throughout the theme parks during regular park hours.  I would expect that some of these characters will also visit with guests during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and additional Disney friends will also join them, but check back closer to the holiday season to be sure.

    I hope your visit to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party brings some extra magic to your holiday season!
