    We are trying to play for a trip right before Thanksgiving. Do you happen to know certain days the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will be held this year? If not, do you happen to know when the dates will be released?

    Welcome to planDisney, Aimee! Thank you for trusting us with your question and I'll be delighted to share some insights with you as you continue planning your visit to Walt Disney World Resort later this year!

    I know I shouldn't pick favorites, but I have to say that visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season has to be among my top treasured memories with my family. There's just something extra magical about the merriest season of all, especially when you have a party to look forward to! Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party has not yet been announced for 2024 but I would sure be on the lookout for some updates coming soon. In previous years, it has been common to see these announcements come out in late June or early July. If it's helpful to reference last year's calendar, the party dates began as early as November 9 and ran all the way through December 22. So, it would be a good bet to think that one of the special event dates might align with your planned visit in the days leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday this year!

    I'm crossing my fingers and sending up a yuletide wish that you're able to secure special event tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party this year, Aimee! My family attended last year and it was definitely a highlight for everyone, from the youngest in our travel party all the way up through the grandparents! My suggestion is to keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog and on the special event ticketing page for any updates. In the meantime, I'll share last year's Disney Eats: Foodie Guide to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (2023) in case you're like me and you like to dream with visions of sugarplums, and all sorts of seasonal treats in advance of your visit!

    In the meantime, please feel welcome to drop by planDisney again anytime you have more questions as you prepare for your visit. We'd love to share any helpful tips and advice for making the most of your time at 'The Most Magical Place on Earth!'

    Merriest wishes,
