Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) is a great way to celebrate the holidays at Walt Disney World. Starting in November, on selected nights, Mickey invites you to join him and party in the Magic Kingdom Disney style.
During the night complimentary at several Magic Kingdom restaurants, cocoa and cookies are served to all guests. Special holiday shows occur all around the park, and yes, it even snows on Main Street.
Advanced Purchase Tickets are available for $62 for adults and $57 for children ages 3 to 9. Day of the event tickets an extra $5 for all parties except for December 20. That party is $71 for adults and $66 for children (advanced is the same price).
Prices do not include tax.
Discounts are available for Annual Pass and Disney Vacation Club members for select dates. There is a substantial Military discount for the November parties.
The party starts at 7:00 and lasts until midnight. However, if you have a party ticket, you will be admitted to the park as early as 4:00.

Yes, I know, you can see most of these things on a regular night. But the cookies and cocoa bring a warmth to the festivities. You also get a complimentary photo taken with a holiday background. (Complimentary if you don't count the cost of tickets to the party.)
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.
