Disney Christmas In July

Meeting Rare Characters at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Written by: 

There are many special events that you will attend each year, but nothing is like going to a special event in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is one of the best “hard ticket” events at Walt Disney World every year.  Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit like snow on Main Street, free hot chocolate, and the best cookies this side of Grandma’s house! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party started in 1983 and has been going strong ever since.  This is a wonderful event filled with special parades, castle shows, and treats.  For some, the best part of the party is the chance to meet some of their favorite characters.

Go Early!  The party begins at 7PM. This means that they will begin to usher regular park guests out at this time.  You can, however, enter the park at 4PM and get a fast pass for a few rides before you start the party festivities.  This is a good way to get some rides out of the way in order to save the party time for seeing the shows and meeting the unique characters that make the party so special.

Get in line to see the Seven Dwarfs!  Most suggest going to see the characters that are not available throughout the year.  One of the longest lines is the line to see the Seven Dwarfs.  They are located on the wall in Fantasyland.  Try to get in line by 6:30PM as their line never slows the entire night.  The only time you can you see all Seven Dwarfs together is at a special event in the Magic Kingdom.  They have on their Christmas scarfs and it makes for a wonderful Christmas card photo.
Take a Selfie with Dopey! After taking your family photo, the Dopey selfie is a must.

Head back to Storybook Circus!  No character meet and greet is as fun as a meet and greet with Jack Skellington as “Sandy Claws”.  Located in Storybook Circus, he will come to get you in line with a high step that makes the children laugh with glee.  Just like the Seven Dwarfs, you can only meet the much loved Jack Skellington, from The Nightmare Before Christmas, at a special event.  He will take multiple pictures so your family can get a one-at-a-time picture with the hilarious Jack.

Scrooge McDuck makes an appearance! Staying in Storybook Circus, you can meet Scrooge McDuck with Daisy and Donald Duck in their Christmas outfits. Scrooge McDuck is a holiday favorite and the line isn’t too long to meet him.  Just don’t give Scrooge a dollar…you will never get it back.  After meeting Scrooge McDuck the line will lead to straight to Minnie Mouse in her best holiday dress. 

On the way out, make sure to tell Santa your Christmas wishes! Santa is located outside of Guest Relations on Main Street right next to the restrooms.  It is a wonderful end to a magical night.
