    We will be at WDW the week after Thanksgiving, and really would like to see the holiday parade. Will we be able to see the parade with having to buy tickets to the Mickey Very Merry Christmas party?

    Hi Robin!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Christmas time at Walt Disney World Resort is truly magical and there seems to be something in the air that just creates the most wondEARful atmosphere!

    For most of the holiday season, Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade will only run during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. The exception to this is usually the week of Christmas where they will bring the parade to normal park hours. Don't fear though, you'll still have plenty of opportunities to take in some holiday cheer on your visit to Walt Disney World Resort! You must check out Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! at Disney's Hollywood Studios and I certainly wouldn't miss Holidays Around the World at Epcot

    Please let us know if you have any other questions before your upcoming trip!
