    Hi there Shenell!

    How exciting to be planning a Walt Disney World vacation for this December! You will love all of the Christmas decorations adorning the parks and resorts. As a mom of four children including a set of 11-year-old twin boys, I would love to assist you with this question. I took all of my children to Walt Disney World twice before the age of 2 and they absolutely loved it. 

    In regards to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, I would base that decision on your children's bedtime schedules. Although I do think your 9-year-old and 5-year-old would love it, I could it see it being difficult for your little ones to stay awake until midnight. We took our twins to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party when they were 4-years-old and they were sound asleep in their stroller before they could see the parade. If you do decide to attend the party, I highly recommend spending the earlier part of the day relaxing or enjoying your Disney Resort hotel rather than hitting a theme park then as well.  I would also suggest an afternoon nap before the party.  In my personal opinion, if you will be arriving on the 17th and departing on the 21st and have purchased a 3-Day Ticket with Park Hopper Option, I don't think I would add the special event to your itinerary as well. 

    I hope this information is helpful in making the best decision for your family. Please don't hesitate to reach out again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical and merry trip, Shenell!

    Happy Planning,
