    I was wondering if the characters at Disney World dress up in Christmas attire during normal park hours? or is it only during the Christmas party only?

    Hi Leslie!

    I absolutely love getting into the holiday spirit by visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season!  I think there is even more magical pixie dust floating around than normal during that time of the year!

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is a great way to celebrate the holidays at Magic Kingdom Park!  Not only are there holiday-themed attractions, shows, parades, and fireworks, but you will also see some of your favorite characters dressed for the occasion!

    Outside of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, you really never know when Mickey Mouse and his friends might get dressed up in their holiday best to come and greet Guests.  Since they all have such amazing closets, it really all depends on how they are feeling that day!  Sometimes, Mickey may want to wear his normal outfits, but sometimes, he may wake up with a little extra holiday spirit and want to put on a lovely Christmas sweater or suit for all of his friends to see!  You know Minnie Mouse loves her bows, but she also loves dressing for the occasion, so I always find myself jealous of her beautiful outfits!  Of course, you never know what Goofy is going to be wearing because, he is so, well, goofy!

    That being said, the closer it gets to Christmas, the more likely the characters are to embrace the holiday season and add a little sparkle to their outfits, so make sure you keep an eye out during your trip!  You may also want to check out Minnie's Holiday Dine at Hollywood & Vine where you can see some of your favorites dressed for the holidays!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
