    Hello, does this year's (2017) Holiday Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party include viewing of the Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas Parade? If so, do both Plaza Garden and Terrace? Is it at the flagpole like last year or is it the Plaza Garden?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carie! Thank you for allowing us to join you in your planning fun as you dream up a most magical holiday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I’m thrilled to learn you are planning a visit during my most favorite time of year, the Holidays! A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is always magical, but there’s just something about the holiday season that adds some extra holly jolly pixie dust. It’s fa-la-la-la-rricif!

    Carie, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is my favorite special event during the Holidays! Magic Kingdom in all its Christmassy glory is such a special treat. Getting to see Cinderella Castle adorned with hundreds of thousands of Christmas lights, your favorite characters dressed up for the special occasion, the shows, the treats, but the #1 must-see on my list of favorites is Holiday Wishes! It brings tears to my eyes seeing all my favorites come together; Christmas music, fireworks, Cinderella Castle, and Disney! And getting to see this dazzling nighttime spectacular with reserved seating and a magical spread of holiday delights is even better!

    This year, the Holiday Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party welcomes guests to enjoy an unbeatable view of the Holiday Wishes Fireworks Spectacular while they enjoy reserved seating and holiday-themed treats! Be sure to check in at Tomorrowland Terrace for the party one hour prior to the fireworks so you can secure your favorite spot. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The parade is not included with the party this year.

    I hope you have a most magical time during this enchanted event. Thanks again for bringing us your question and be sure to come back and see us again real soon! ~Emille
