Crowd Factor

Disney doesn't publish the exact number of tickets sold, but it's estimated that 20,000 tickets are available for each party. Some nights sell out early, but some nights the crowds are very light.


How does Disney get everyone out of the park? After 7:00 only guests with Party tickets will be allowed on the rides. (Yes, over the last couple of years it has be reported that there are cheaters.)

Dad's Bottom Line

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one of Dad's favorite things at Walt Disney World. Is it worth the price? That's another story. We like to do this on our first day when we arrive in Orlando. A day when we wouldn't normally visit a park so we're not paying double for tickets.
