    Hi! I will be visiting WDW during the week of Christmas 2019. Does the Magic Kingdom have a daily Christmas parade in which the Disney characters are dress in holiday clothing or do we have to pay $99 extra to see Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party?

    Hi there, Lawrence!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  What a memorable holiday you will have this yEAR!!  While I love visiting Walt Disney World Resort any time of the year, there is something extra special about visiting the theme parks during the holidays!  Maybe it’s just the festive décor but it seems extra magical and incredibly memorable!

    I am so glad you stopped by with your question about seeing your favorite Characters all dressed up in their festive holiday attire because that is definitely something not to miss during your holiday visit!  You are in luck because according to the park hours calendar it shows the Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade daily at Magic Kingdom Park beginning on December 23rd and going through the end of the year!  So, now is the time to work that parade into your daily schedule so you can see your favorite Disney Characters and maybe even Santa, himself!

    Another event that I consider “not to be missed during a holiday visit to the theme parks” is the Candlelight Processional at Epcot.  This is an incredible storytelling of the Christmas story along with a choir and orchestra that simply make it unforgettable.  If you have a chance, I highly recommend working this into your schedule as well!

    Wishing you a joyous and magical vacation, Lawrence!  Please come back with any other questions you may have as you continue planning for your holiday visit!
