Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Holiday Décor
Like Halloween, Magic Kingdom completely transforms for Christmas! Main Street U.S.A is nothing short of magical during Christmastime. The first thing you’ll see as you enter is a GIANT Christmas tree decorated with hundreds of festive lights and ornaments. Garland and wreaths can be found everywhere you look – on the lamp posts, along the upper balconies, even in the shop windows.
At night, the park comes to life with colorful lights and projections, some of which are exclusively for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It even SNOWS on Main Street!
Best of all, Elsa lights up Cinderella’s Castle with over 300,000 glowing Christmas lights!
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom
If you play the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom interactive card game, don’t forget to visit the Main Street fire station to pick up your party-exclusive Sorcerer card! This year’s special card features the classic Tiki Room tiki birds. You must be attending the party to receive this card.
Holiday Treat Stations
Be on the lookout for special party-exclusive holiday treat locations throughout the park (or simply refer to your park map). There are even special treats for those with food allergies!
PARTY TIP: Take a plastic baggy or container with you to store your extra cookies in to take home with you!
