Hi Dad! A huge bucket-list item of mine has always been to see WDW decorated for Christmas! My dream is coming true as we are going soon, Nov 10-16 and will celebrate both my daughter’s 9th birthday and my 40th while we are there! I know we just have to go to MVMCP but I just can’t decide which night would be less crowded… Mon 11/11 (the start of the Free Dining Promotion) or Thursday 11/14 or Friday 11/15? I suspect Friday nights are pretty crowded, so we are really only considering Mon or Thursday. Which do you think is our best bet??

Dad’s probably Answer
I like your bucket list. You’ll have a great time at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It’s a great time even when it’s crowded.
We’ve noticed a big change in the parties through the years. When we first started going the crowds were pretty small and there were rarely any sold out nights. Now it seems like almost every party sells out and the crowds are bigger.
That being said, when it comes to the best night I agree that you definitely want to avoid Friday nights. That’s probably the busiest night every week. The second busiest night is usually Thursday night. So that leaves Monday night as the best night to go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
You’re going to be blown away by all the great things to see and do during your visit. The Magic Kingdom is amazing, EPCOT has Holidays Around the World, the Studios has Osborne Lights, and the hotel decorations are just incredible. There’s just nothing better than …
It’ll be a bit after you get home, but on November 29th the Christmas issue of WDW Magazine will be out. Even if you just went you won’t want to miss it.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Nancy, Monday will be your best bet. It’s going to be great. Make sure to let us know how it went.
