Where Can You Purchase These Specially Priced Tickets?

These special tickets must be purchased in person (with proper military ID) from Walt Disney World ticket or Guest Relations locations! They cannot be pre-purchased over the phone or internet.
From Shades of Green
You may also purchase these special tickets in person at Shades of Green's Ticket Office or call 407-824-1403.
Shades of Green will ship these special tickets to you. Contact the Shades of Green Ticket Office by email at: advancedtickets@shadesofgreen.org. Let them know that you want to purchase the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tickets (and any other types of tickets needed). They will send you a price list and order form.

Walt Disney World will sell the military tickets for sold out events even when regular tickets are unavailable. This is because these military discount tickets are only available in person if you want to buy from Disney!

:santa: Where can I buy the tickets? When should I buy tickets?
Tickets can be ordered by calling 407-W-DISNEY or purchase online, https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tickets/events/. Once you purchase tickets, they will be linked to yourMy Disney Experience account.
Definitely purchase in advance of the party, especially if you plan to attend one of the last parties, or if there is a specific day you prefer to go.

:santa:What time does MVMCP start? What time can I enter the park?
MVMCP officially starts at 7pm. Guests may enter Magic Kingdom using their party tickets starting at 4pm. This practice is not officially advertised by Disney, but it has been exercised for many years and Cast Members will readily confirm this information. None of the party-specific M&Gs or treats will begin until 7pm, with a few M&G exceptions.
Back for 2019 – Early Entry for DVC Members
This year, Members and their guests can enter Magic Kingdom park starting at 2:00 PM, which is 2 hours earlier than ever before! Simply present your valid Disney Vacation Club Membership Card and your event ticket at the main entrance touchpoints to take advantage of this benefit. The benefit is valid for the Member and up to 7 guests with tickets to this event (a total of 8 people).

:santa: Do I need a wristband? What if I want to stay without one?
Yes, a wristband is included in the cost of admission. All ticket holders for this event will be required to wear a wristband. You may pick-up your wristband and map of the party at designated locations in the MK.
Once the party begins at 7pm, Cast Members begin looking for those who do not have wristbands to exit the park.
MVMCP Ticket Holders have purchased tickets with "their money" for the party; if you do not have a ticket/wristband make your way to exit the gates by 7pm.
As discussed on another thread, there are different color wristbands, so NO Double Dipping to attend another party. Oh, my! I'm already in the park. Do I have to exit and re-enter for MVMCP? No, there are checkpoints within the park to check-in and receive wristbands for MVMCP!
A Pirate's Adventure - Treasures of the Seven Seas (Adventureland)
Fantasy Faire (Fantasyland)
Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor (Tomorrowland) - Near the Exit

:santa:Are FP+ Reservations available during the party?
No, there are no FP+ reservations in the park after 6 p.m., the closing time of Magic Kingdom to day guests.
You can, however, make FP+ reservations using your party ticket for the 4-6:00pm time period (FP+ Selections should be booked between 3:30-6:00pm), before the party officially begins. The good news is that most attraction lines will be short enough during the party that you won’t miss FP+ reservations much. New for 2017 with the Magic Kingdom closing @ 6pm to day guests, FP+ will cease to be available after 5:30pm-6:00pm and the 15 minute late grace period will not be given; this is the same for 2018 too.
When Can I Make FP+ Reservations?
Staying at a Disney World Resort: 60D in Advance
Staying at a Non-Disney Resort: 30D in Advance
Please note, if you only purchased MVMCP tickets, your FP+ reservation is still based on resort check-in day (60D in Advance).

2019 - Magic Kingdom Park Attractions Get an All-New Holiday Twist for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
For the first time ever during MVMCP, select Magic Kingdom attractions are receiving special enhancements just for the holidays!
When you get behind the wheel on the Tomorrowland Speedway, you’ll find yourself cruising a festive freeway filled with thousands of lights and stylized décor.
The crew at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor is putting some “Ha Ha Ha” in their “Ho Ho Ho,” with a new show for everyone visiting the Monster World during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Space Mountain launches you on a trippy jaunt through the cosmos, filled with dazzling lighting and high-energy holiday tunes.
The Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland becomes a wild and wacky Christmas party, as you spin your teacups to one of four new holiday combos of lights and music.

:santa:Should I attend?
Is MVMCP worth it? IMO it is most definitely worth the price at least once. I thoroughly enjoyed MVMCP, and we plan to attend 2 parties this year (fingers crossed for dates). It’s definitely worth it if your budget allows.
There’s plenty of special entertainment, special decorations and lighting, and lots of unique character meet and greets.
If you decide to attend MVMCP, make sure to purchase your tickets in advance, and use any available discounts (i.e. DVC, AP, etc,).
Tickets are more expensive on the day of the party, and several nights each year sell out completely.

:santa: Party Crowds
MVMCP is a special ticket event with a limited amount of tickets sold. It has been discussed that more tickets are being sold as of late. However, due to Party Entertainment, crowds tend to be more concentrated around the events, especially the parade and fireworks. November party dates will almost always be less busy than December dates, and Tuesdays are usually less crowded than parties offered on other days of the week. Day of the week tends to matter as well, with Monday through Thursday evenings being less busy than the weekend events.
:santa:Can I purchase Memory Maker for MVMCP ONLY?
Yes, Disney PhotoPass now offers Memory Maker (MM) One Day (Disney PhotoPass Website Updated on 3/25/16).
The Memory Maker Window begins at 6:00am EST on the day you use the 1D theme park admission with which MM is bundled at purchase or if MM was purchased separately, the date the photo selected on the MDE app, or of applicable, on MyDisneyPhotoPass.com when purchasing MM or when linking a previously purchased MM code to your Disney account and ends at 5:59am EST on the following day.(i.e. The 1D Memory Maker can be purchased in the app, after you have a photo loaded into your account, click on the photo, and you will get the option to purchase either the 30-day MM for $169, or the 1-day MM for $69).
PhotoPass photographers will take Magic Shots during the party where you will pose and when you see the photos afterward, you'll see something magically inserted into the photo.
Email: disneyphotopass_support@disneyworld.com or Call 407-560-4300

Magic Shots
Disney PhotoPass Photographers will be available to capture Special Holiday Themed Magic Shots at the Main Entrance, Town Square, Main Street, U.S.A., the Castle Hub and in front of The Haunted Mansion.
There are some returning options this year and new options for 2019.

Foodie Guide to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2019 at Magic Kingdom Park

:santa: Snow on Main Street, U.S.A.
This isn’t “real” snow, it is actually imitation snow. There is a “snowfall” on Main Street (Between Casey's Corner & the Emporium) before the parades and then at the end of the evening. There is also snow on Main Street after the fireworks. It can snow intermittently on Main Street, but there is not snow during A Frozen Holiday Wish or the Fireworks. There is also snow in Tomorrowland immediately following A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show.

:santa:What are the times for Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade?
Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade runs at 8:30pm and 11:00pm.

It has been discussed that the second parade is less crowded than the first. There are advantages and disadvantages to both depending on your party size/age and party plans.

FYI: The parade route begins in Frontierland, follows the waterway until it reaches Liberty Square, crosses the Liberty Square bridge, circles Central Plaza in front of Cinderella's Castle, then heads down Main Street, U.S.A., where it ends next to Harmony Barbershop.

2019: Forky from Toy Story has been added to the parade.

:santa:What time is Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks?
Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks shows at 10:00pm.
Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season (2018 and Prior).

Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks is Exclusive to MVMCP, but will run from December 23-29 at 10pm.

The Walt Disney World Transportation, including the boat launches, bus and monorail stations, all continue to run during and after Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

Disney Springs: One-way bus service from the 4 Disney theme parks operates daily from 4:00 PM until 11:00 PM or 2 hours after theme parks close, whichever is earlier.

:santa: Weather
Please note that the party will go on regardless of weather, so even if it's pouring down raining, it will take place.

The actual SPECIAL EVENT (MVMCP) does end on the selected date, however, they still have the Christmas Parade for FREE in the Magic Kingdom after the last scheduled MVMCP for you to enjoy in case you cannot attend MVMCP! You should try your best to attend though!

:santa: Can I make ADRs in the Magic Kingdom WITHOUT a party ticket?
Yes, you can make your reservations up until 6:00pm. Please note you will be asked to leave the property as soon as your dining experience is complete. If you have not purchased a MVMCP ticket, you can purchase a same day ticket IF the party has not sold out.

:santa: Should I eat in a Disney Restaurant while the party is going on? Will I miss something?
This is subjective, and you will see conflicting opinions posted on various threads. Remember - you can enter the park at 4pm if you have purchased a MVMCP ticket. Most agree that you should eat either before, or during the 4-7pm time periods so you DO NOT waste time/miss the Christmas Festivities.

MVMCP Reviews and Guest Party Plans
Guest Party Plans (Itineraries)

MVMCP 11/8 review

1:25: entered MK
1:30: photopass with tree
1:35-1:58: 7DMT with FP+ (ride had just been down and FP line was seriously backed up)
2-2:13: MVMCP merchandise at the Emporium (able to shop without party wristband by showing party ticket on MDE on phone. Merchandise was located in 3 different rooms- first room from MK entry had all the pins and magicband, second had passholder shirt and pin, 3rd room had all the other merchandise)
2:15: attempted to get in line for Jack and Sally and were rudely turned away by a CM who said only DVC could get in line and insisted this was the policy for 3 years even though we said at MNSSHP 1 week ago it wasn't the policy
2:20-3:05: in line at guest relations for them to eventually call over to TST and tell the CM he was wrong
3:10-4:42: 5th in line for Jack and Sally who started meeting at 4:30. (turned out 2 of the groups in front of us had the same rude interaction with the CM we did and all left guest relations within minutes of each other)
4:45-5: pictures in Main Street bypass
5:04-6:20: 1st in line for Nick and Judy who started meeting at 6:15. The meet and greet area wasn't set up yet when we got there but we managed to form an "unofficial" line off to the side until they had it set up
6:25-7:16: Snow and her prince and Aurora and Prince Philip: we were maybe the 9th or 10th group back in line
7:18-7:21: cookie from treat spot at Friar's Nook
7:28: grabbed spot on Main Street for 1st parade. Main Street was pretty decently filled at this point so when we saw a spot open we just went for it. Glad we did too because we saw the only snow on Main Street we saw that night (I assume because of the rain?)
7:45-8:05: left DBF holding parade spots and went to check us in for the Plaza dessert party. They started checking people in at 8 and gave me DBF's wristband to bring to him. I grabbed some snacks to bring back to our parade spot and went back.
8:50ish-9:09: parade reached us and finished. As others mentioned, a small Forky was added to the parade otherwise it was the same.
9:12-9:35: enjoyed the Plaza dessert party, being out of the rain and off our feet lol.
9:40-10:15ish: took some dessert over in hot beverage cups and some hot chocolate and coffee to the Plaza garden to watch fireworks. We liked the new show but with the rain and humidity and smoke, the castle was obscured for most of the show.
10:20-10:45: Scrooge and Donald and Minnie and Daisy in the Dumbo tent. One line to meet them both in pairs, probably about 8 people ahead of us when we got in line.
10:47-10:50: found that Goofy moved to the train station in Storybook Circus for the rain and met him with no wait.
10:51: checked on 7d line, still long, as per CM probably about 40 minutes
10:52-10:55: found Ariel and Eric meeting in the little alcove across from the grotto for the rain, no line at all
11-11:10: Tiana and Naveen and Rapunzel and Flynn at PFTH, wait was posted at 20 minutes but only 3 people in line
11:11-11:20: Elena and Cinderella and Prince Charming, wait posted at 10 minutes, only 1 person in line with us.
11:21: Friar's Nook treat stop, no line at all and they practically threw handfuls of cookies at us
11:22-11:33 Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, moved under cover by the Chesire Cafe for rain, line was short but they went on break as we got there so we alternated going through the treat spot at Cosmic Ray's while we waited
11:35-11:40: picture on Main Street
11:41-11:54- Mickey - when we got in line they were still letting people in the Jack and Sally line quoting an hour wait (which I don't believe lol)

We had planned to watch the last stage show but they'd all been delayed or cancelled all night for the rain and we were over being outside in the rain so we decided to abandon that plan. No idea if the show happened or not.

With the rain, some of the photopass moved to under the train station which let you get a shot with the whole Christmas tree and up at the train station which got the tree and castle so it was nice to get some different angles!

We got our last photopass at the entrance at 12:26 and left.

Overall thoughts: We're not new to the parties and the rain didn't hold us back from enjoying ourselves. A lot of people seemed to leave after the 1st parade and fireworks because of it and the second half of the party was so empty. If it is raining on your party night, try to tough it out and have a good time anyway! The second parade on our night was a rainy day cavalcade version so if seeing the parade is important to you, keep that in mind. If you wait for the 2nd and it's cancelled, there won't be another chance.

The Plaza dessert party- the desserts were nice, the fireworks viewing was good and nice to have but we won't do it again during a party. We like to watch the 1st parade to hit shorter character lines at the end of the night and the party doesn't fit into this well enough for us.
11/15 MVMCP report

We arrived pretty much right at 4. We stopped and got a few photos on the way in. We had a 3:40 FP for BTMRR that we went straight to.

PP (FP+)
Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
A Frozen Wish (6:15)
Met Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet & Tigger (probably about a 45 minute wait)
Mad Tea Party
Met Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum (maybe a 15-20 minute wait)
Met the 7 Dwarfs (probably about a 45 minute wait)
Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks
Monster's Inc Laugh Floor
Met Mary Poppins & Bert
11:00 parade
Space Mountain

We were going to try and meet Jack & Sally too, but the line was moving TOO SLOW and so we skipped out and went back to other stuff.

The 3 of us decided that we like the Christmas party better than the Halloween party (we went last year). This party was not as crowded as it was for us last year and we got a lot more done.
So I attended Thursday Nov 21.

I've definitely seen more crowded parties, but I've also seen emptier ones.

I was posting about my experiences briefly until I forgot.

Our main priorities were the parade, ride overlays and characters.

So here is what we managed to do with time stamps as close as I can get them:

2:30- left Cabana Bay in a Lyft. We didn't want to mess with the TTA so we had them drop us off at French Quarter and we took the MK bus from there

3:14- got on a bus at French Quarter

3:31- in line at the tapstyles. 20-30 people back, chose a line with mostly adults thinking it would go faster and it did.

3:38- they let us in

3:48- in line for Jack and Sally. Bit ridiculous, we were in line for them for a mNSSHP and lined up around 2:30, we were about one space back from where we were at MNSSHP for this MVMCP.

4:31- Jack and Sally start to meet

4:51- met Jack and Sally. Very crazy interaction. Those guys are intense and I'm actually unsure if they take it too far. They met a couple with a baby ahead of us and Jack said a comment about having a tiny coffin for the pint sized baby. I get what you're doing, but might wanna dial that back a bit Jack.

5- got Sorcerer's cards then hit up bypass for the shortbread cookie.

5:10- Jingle cruise FP, waited 10 minutes. Had a very funny skipper, Holly. I love the Jingle Cruise jokes

5:42- in line for Judy and Nick, 4 groups back.

5:50- got cookie butter milkshake and thought it was pretty bland.

6:20- met Nick and Judy

6:34- joined line for Rapunzel and Flynn, Tiana and Naveen. About 15 people in front of us. At this point you could just walk up to see Cinderella and Elena before Charming started.

7:27- met the characters. the line moved slowly because they each spend so much time with everyone.

7:38- in line for HM. Line took about 10 minutes. Nothing says Merry Christmas like grim grinning ghosts.

We were pretty dumb at this point. We hadn't had dinner which we usually always try to do before parties. I wanted to see the first parade from Main Street, so we thought we'd mobile order from Casey's and pick it up on the way.

Big mistake. We must have been waiting for our mobile order for over half an hour. Even when the app said it was ready we still had to stand there for another ten and stare at the counter before it showed up. It was very packed in there.

8:43- We finally got our food and booked it down a very packed Main Street. Usually the train station area has spots later than the actual street, but there was only one small space open facing the train station. As we'd soon find it, it was open because it was right over the sewer and apparently Disney sewers stink really bad?!

I mean, yes, I understand it's a sewer. But it was really, really bad smelling. Kind of weird for Disney.

So anyway, we ate over the stinking sewer while I thought of the Christmas Vacation movie and Uncle Eddie emptying his RV toilet into the sewer.

We got to see the little pre-parade entertainment with dancers with giant white balls. I kind of prefer the Creepa Crew from MNSSHP.

If anyone was wondering about parade arrival times, we were pretty much at the end of the parade route and the parade started at 9:30 and got to us around 8:50.

I like the parade, but not a huge fan of the song. Once upon a Christmas time at Christmas? Say Christmas one more time...just one more.

9:34- stopped to get some cookies then in line for POTC. Waited about 5 minutes.

Got some pretzels on our way around, was looking for roaming Country Bears but just saw one as he left.

10- fireworks started. We hadn't been impressed AT ALL by the new MNSSHP ones, so we decided just to watch from wherever we were. Mary and Bert had gone in for the fireworks, so we just hung out in Liberty Square and watched the fireworks from there. Most patriotic Christmas fireworks ever.

View attachment 454293

After fireworks were third in line for Mary and Bert.

10:19- met Mary and Bert

10:27- headed towards Storybook Circus, peeked into Princess Hall along the wall and there was no wait for Cinderella, Charming and Elena so we walked right in

10:40- in line for Ducks and Minnie

11:06- met Ducks and Minnie

Santa Goofys line was somewhat long so we decided to skip him for now.

11:17- decided to check on Tweedles, there was only 3 groups ahead of us so we met them.

11:30- did another walk through new Fantasyland on our way to check on Goofy. Eric and Ariel had a few groups in line so we met them.

Made it back to Storybook, decided to check on Dwarves, they shut the door literally as we arrived and said they were closed for the night at 11:34.

Watched the Disney Jr. Dance party. I understand kids like dance parties, but it seemed like a waste of 3 characters. There were 2 kids when we arrived and they were just standing staring at the characters.

Goofy's line was still long and I wanted to get on the Speedway. Instead, we checked on Belle whose line looked like it might allow us to make Speedway.

11:40- got in line for Belle

11:53- met Belle

Booked it to Speedway and made it in line at 11:56.

Thought Speedway was decently Christmasfied, but glad we didn't wait long. It wasn't that great.

Throughout the night we also collected some cookies and a pretzel. Were pretty sad though, we could never find our favorite peppermint cookies.

Overall we had fun at the party. I think they did a good job at changing up the fireworks (I didn't really like them, but at least they did something new). Also a good job with the ride overlays, but they could do with some new characters.

We also didn't see any snow on Main Street, even when we left after midnight. That was a let down.
On the bus after the party tonight. We had a great time and even though it was a sold out party and pretty crowded, we were able to do everything we wanted! We did (in order):
-met Jack and Sally (lined up around 2:20, was 2nd in line and met at 4:33)
-Bought some party merchandise
-Went through the bypass
-met Nick and Judy (lined up around 5:15ish, was 3rd in line, met at 6:17)
-Met Winnie the Pooh and friends (got in line around 6:20, met at 6:47)
-Met Aurora and Snow White with their princes (got in line around 6:50, met at 7:22)
-Did the Tinkerbell lantern photo (1 group in front of us so a short wait, did while in line for Aurora and Snow White by switching out)
-Met the Tweedles while waiting for Ariel & Eric at 7:42, was a short line with about 6-7 groups in front of me
-Met Ariel and Prince Eric (by far the longest line, got in line around 7:25 and met at 8:12)
-Got some cookies (all lines were super long so we only did this 3 times throughout the night)
-Met Minnie & Daisy with Scrooge and Donald at 8:39, a relatively short line
-Got the Zero magic shot
-Met Mickey with no line at 8:52
-Club Tinsel
-Met Mary Poppins and Bert (they were really hard to meet due to their schedule!!) - got in line around 9, they came out at 9:15 since they were in the parade and met at 9:26
-Got a photo with the green ornament
-Met Aladdin and Abu at 9:57
-Watched the fireworks by the Crystal Palace
-Met Cinderella, Prince Charming, and Elena at 10:26, line was very short
-Did some photos in the photo pass studio (Sir Mickey’s)
-11pm parade down Main Street
-Rode Space Mountain (this is a MUST and was very fun. the line was only 15 minutes at ~11:40ish)
-Did all the magic shots on Main Street between 12-1am
I recommend having a solid plan. We did a lot of running around the park and our feet hurt but it was so worth it! There was only 2 of us so I recommend switching out during character lines to get photos and cookies while the other person keeps the spot in line. Please ask if you have any questions!

    Are the tickets refundable since you have to book so far in advance?
    Disney will work with you on a case-by-case basis. Example, you change your plans, your tickets are probably yours. You have a death in the family, somebody cannot make it, your vacation dates change, they will work with you.
    Official policy is that one purchased that is it, but Disney has been known to review the situation and make a decision from there.

    Hmm, okay. So a 50-50 chance of a modification. Assuming there are still spaces open on another party night...

    Now that halloween tickets have gone on sale, when should we expect to see Christmas? March maybe?
    The March/April timeframe has been the norm, with party dates and tickets for both MNSSHP and MVMCP released together.

    My guess is that with the “late fall” opening of GE, and the early release of free dining and MNSSHP tickets, Disney is doing their best to entice as many people as possible to book “early fall.” I would not expect to see MVMCP details any earlier than normal, and maybe even later,as they brace for huge crowds at the end of the year.

    Wish we weregoing again this year!

    My nephew got sick while at the resorts a couple of years ago. Disney refunded their tickets in full and even comped them the day they missed at the parks.

    Love the Christmas Party! We attended the first 2018 party (11/8) and I was surprised at how light the crowds seemed for a sold out party (cookie lines were quick and we didn't see a wait time above twenty minutes all night - except for Dwarfs, of course) until we went to the hub for Holiday Wishes and realized that's where everyone was all night, lol. Wall to wall people. We'll be visiting this year the week before Thanksgiving so definitely planning on going again. It's just such a fun time!


    Dec 5, 2017
    Very excited knowing that we will be attending one this year!! Went to our first in 2017!
