    I just purchased tickets to MVMCP for December 14, 2018 and I was wondering if there is going to be a schedule of events or if you just walk around and do things at your own pace?

    Hi Aubrie,

    Ooh...I am SO EXCITED for you! Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is my very favorite special event of the entire year! With complimentary snacks and treats, lower wait times for attractions, special character meet and greet opportunities, snow on Main Street U.S.A., the spectacular Holiday Wishes fireworks show, and my very favorite, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, it's an incredible evening FULL of magic and Christmas joy!

    When you arrive, you'll want to be sure to pick up a guide map for the event. It will have a list of all of the complimentary treats being served at various locations around the theme park, a map of participating attractions and dining locations, and a schedule for the entertainment for the evening. While some of the magic, like attractions, snack opportunities, and many character greetings, will be available all evening, there will be some special events and shows that will have specific times. You'll definitely have the freedom and flexibility to go wherever the magic takes you and do whatever you're most excited about doing, but there are some scheduled events that you may need to work your plans around. I, personally, would consider both the fireworks and the parade to be must-do events, and you'll want to build in a little extra time to make sure you find a great viewing spot for both of them. Please wave hello to the toy soldiers during the parade for me...they're my favorite, other than Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Santa Clause, of course!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Aubrie, and have a truly magical vacation!
