    Hi, We are planning a trip to Disneyworld in Dec. 2024. We can’t book our flights or resort hotel until we know the schedule for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Do you know the individual nights that it will be in Nov. and Dec. 2024? Thanks! Jackie

    Hi Jackie,

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    Winter holiday planning in July is one of my favorite planning activities! I wish I had the answer to this question! While the 2024 dates for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party have not yet been released, you can take a look at the prior year's dates to get a sense of when the party was held in the past. A Disney Parks Blog article posted last year included dates for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom and Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party ran on select nights from November 9th-December 22nd. Also take a look at this answer from my fellow panelist, Jonathan for additional information.

    When I have faced a similar dilemma in the past, I have booked my resort hotel and flights if the prices seemed good and then, once party dates are released, I have modified reservations if necessary. Since we are always on a budget, I start tracking resort hotel and flight prices early. With the airlines I use and the types of tickets I purchase, I can modify flights without penalty and I just have to pay the difference in ticket prices if the new flights are more expensive. If the flights are less expensive, I get a flight credit which we can use on a future flight. My priority is price. If you can go for a week, it may be that whatever dates you choose will include two possible party dates. If you are going for a shorter amount of time, you may have to wait for those official party dates to be released.

    Jackie, I will also suggest that you keep an eye on the Special Offers. There may be additional offers released that are applicable to the dates you plan to visit. Remember that if you have an existing reservation, a new Special Offer may not be applicable. Be sure to double-check and, if you have any reservation-specific questions, contact a cast member in Disney Resort Hotel Reservations. Sending you a little extra pixie dust as you wait for the release of those party dates trusting that you will have plenty of time to plan and will get tickets to the party date you can attend!

    Magic and memories,
