Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World is one of the best holiday celebrations in Orlando, and we have the 2017 dates for the event.
This family-friendly celebration has several returning favorites, including “Holiday Wishes,” and “A Frozen Holiday Wish,” along with the centerpiece of the party, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is normally a separately ticketed event that can’t be seen unless you buy said ticket. But this weekend, Walt Disney World is giving you the chance to watch the highlights for free and from the comfort of your couch.
The theme park is continuing its live streaming events on Sunday, December 6, with live streams of “Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade” and “Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season” fireworks live from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom.
In addition to the upcoming Frozen attraction at Epcot, Disney has announced the Frozen characters will have a bigger presence during the upcoming holiday season at Magic Kingdom.
Cinderella’s Holiday Wish, the annual daily ice castle lighting ceremony at Cinderella Castle will now feature Queen Elsa using her powers to transform the palace. Elsa replaces the Fairy Godmother, who has handled the duty for years. No word if anything else in the show will be changed, or if it will even have the same name this year.
Here you can see the Fairy Godmother during last year’s ceremony, just about to light up the castle for the holidays:
