Welcome to the very first Dad’s Big 5. Today we’re going to kick off with Dad’s Big 5 Reasons to go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Yes, I know, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is expensive, so tomorrow, we’ll look at Dad’s Big 5 Reasons not to got to MVMCP. But today let’s have some fun and dream.
These are in no particular order –
Snow on Main Street
One of the coolest (no pun intended) ever is watching it snow on Main Street during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It’s one of the best reasons to go to the party. I know, it’s Florida and it has never really snowed at the Magic Kingdom, but this is the next best thing.
I just wish it would stay for a while.
The Christmas parade during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party may be the best parade at WDW. It’s close between the Boo to You Parade, but since Dad’s a big Christmas guy, I like the Christmas parade better.
Cocoa and Cookies
This is a little bitty thing, but getting FREE cocoa and cookies is just pretty neat. Most of the party nights, the temperature is really about right for cocoa. It really hits the spot when the thermometer gets below 60°. The cookies are really good too.
Since there are limited crowds during the party and because most people are lining up for the parades, the lines for the rides are usually really short. We rode Buzz Lightyear 5 times in a row with no wait the last time we were at a party and that was a sold out party. That’s just incredible. Even the mountains have short lines.
I love Wishes. It’s my favorite regularly scheduled fireworks show anywhere. Holiday Wishes, is the daily show on some major steroids. I love watching Holiday Wishes during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It’s a great way to celebrate the season.
Christmas music and fireworks. What could be better?
If you’d like to go to a party, let our partners over at Destinations to Travel give you a hand and we’ll work with you to create some awesome memories.
Dad’s Bottom Line
OK, so it’s not an official Dad’s page unless there’s a Dad’s Bottom Line. So here we go.
Dad has been to the Christmas Party 4 times, I think. Even though the crowds get a little bigger every time, we still love it.
It is a little pricey, especially for a family (we’ll talk about that tomorrow), but if you can swing it, Dad thinks it’s worth it.
Snow on Main Street, Santa in the parade, cocoa and cookies, short lines, Holiday Wishes and more. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a great place to create holiday memories that you will talk about for years and years.
