Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 2020 (MVMCP)
Once Upon a Wonderful Christmastime
Welcome to the "Official" 2020 Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Thread, where you will get THE most updated information for all of your Christmas needs! Most of this information is from last years party. However, I will update as new information is released.


Mickey's
Very Merry Christmas Party - Frequently Asked Questions

6/18/20: Looking ahead to the holiday season, this may spark questions about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, which includes the Candlelight Processional. We are monitoring our new environment closely, and will make a decision on these events as we continue to learn more from government and health officials. As always, our goal is to explore every option and look at ways in which we can still host events and festivals full of Disney magic, while still operating responsibly with the health and safety of our guests and cast members in mind.

While assessing another fall special event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, we determined that many of its hallmarks – stage shows, parades and fireworks – are unable to take place in this new, unprecedented environment. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Please note that MVMCP is a "hard-ticket" event. A "hard-ticket" event means you must buy a separate ticket for admission to the party, you cannot use a day of your regular Magic Your Way ticket to attend MVMCP.

Ticket prices vary depending on the date of the party.

2020 Prices - Below are the projected prices. Prices subject to change.

🎄Where can I buy the tickets? When should I buy tickets?
Tickets can be ordered by calling 407-W-DISNEY or purchase online, https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tickets/events/. Once you purchase tickets, they will be linked to yourMy Disney Experience account.

Definitely purchase in advance of the party, especially if you plan to attend one of the last parties, or if there is a specific day you prefer to go.


🎄What time does MVMCP start? What time can I enter the park?
MVMCP officially starts at 7pm. Guests may enter Magic Kingdom using their party tickets starting at 4pm. This practice is not officially advertised by Disney, but it has been exercised for many years and Cast Members will readily confirm this information. None of the party-specific M&Gs or treats will begin until 7pm, with a few M&G exceptions.


Back for 2019 – Early Entry for DVC Members
This year, Members and their guests can enter Magic Kingdom park starting at 2:00 PM, which is 2 hours earlier than ever before! Simply present your valid Disney Vacation Club Membership Card and your event ticket at the main entrance touchpoints to take advantage of this benefit. The benefit is valid for the Member and up to 7 guests with tickets to this event (a total of 8 people).

🎄 Do I need a wristband? What if I want to stay without one?
Yes, a wristband is included in the cost of admission. All ticket holders for this event will be required to wear a wristband. You may pick-up your wristband and map of the party at designated locations in the MK.


Once the party begins at 7pm, Cast Members begin looking for those who do not have wristbands to exit the park.

MVMCP Ticket Holders have purchased tickets with "their money" for the party; if you do not have a ticket/wristband make your way to exit the gates by 7pm.


As discussed on another thread, there are different color wristbands, so NO Double Dipping to attend another party. Oh, my! I'm already in the park. Do I have to exit and re-enter for MVMCP? No, there are checkpoints within the park to check-in and receive wristbands for MVMCP!

Locations (2019 Information)

A Pirate's Adventure - Treasures of the Seven Seas (Adventureland)
Fantasy Faire (Fantasyland)

Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor (Tomorrowland) - Near the Exit

🎄Are FP+ Reservations available during the party?
No, there are no FP+ reservations in the park after 6 p.m., the closing time of Magic Kingdom to day guests.

You can, however, make FP+ reservations using your party ticket for the 4-6:00pm time period (FP+ Selections should be booked between 3:30-6:00pm), before the party officially begins. The good news is that most attraction lines will be short enough during the party that you won’t miss FP+ reservations much. New for 2017 with the Magic Kingdom closing @ 6pm to day guests, FP+ will cease to be available after 5:30pm-6:00pm and the 15 minute late grace period will not be given; this is the same for 2018 too.


When Can I Make FP+ Reservations?
Staying at a Disney World Resort: 60D in Advance
Staying at a Non-Disney Resort: 30D in Advance


Please note, if you only purchased MVMCP tickets, your FP+ reservation is still based on resort check-in day (60D in Advance).

2019 - Magic Kingdom Park Attractions Get an All-New Holiday Twist for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
For the first time ever during MVMCP, select Magic Kingdom attractions are receiving special enhancements just for the holidays!

When you get behind the wheel on the Tomorrowland Speedway, you’ll find yourself cruising a festive freeway filled with thousands of lights and stylized décor.


The crew at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor is putting some “Ha Ha Ha” in their “Ho Ho Ho,” with a new show for everyone visiting the Monster World during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Space Mountain launches you on a trippy jaunt through the cosmos, filled with dazzling lighting and high-energy holiday tunes.


The Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland becomes a wild and wacky Christmas party, as you spin your teacups to one of four new holiday combos of lights and music.

🎄 Should I attend?
Is MVMCP worth it? IMO it is most definitely worth the price at least once. I thoroughly enjoyed MVMCP, and we plan to attend 2 parties this year (fingers crossed for dates). It’s definitely worth it if your budget allows.


There’s plenty of special entertainment, special decorations and lighting, and lots of unique character meet and greets.

If you decide to attend MVMCP, make sure to purchase your tickets in advance, and use any available discounts (i.e. DVC, AP, etc,).

Tickets are more expensive on the day of the party, and several nights each year sell out completely.



🎄Party Crowds
MVMCP is a special ticket event with a limited amount of tickets sold. It has been discussed that more tickets are being sold as of late. However, due to Party Entertainment, crowds tend to be more concentrated around the events, especially the parade and fireworks. November party dates will almost always be less busy than December dates, and Tuesdays are usually less crowded than parties offered on other days of the week. Day of the week tends to matter as well, with Monday through Thursday evenings being less busy than the weekend events.

Update for 2020**

https://blog.touringplans.com/2018/...d-mickeys-very-merry-christmas-party-in-2018/

Can I purchase Memory Maker for MVMCP ONLY?
Yes, Disney PhotoPass now offers Memory Maker (MM) One Day (Disney PhotoPass Website Updated on 1/16/19).


The Memory Maker Window begins at 6am EST on the day you use the 1D theme park admission with which MM is bundled at purchase or if MM was purchased separately, the date the photo selected on the MDE app, or of applicable, on MyDisneyPhotoPass.com when purchasing MM or when linking a previously purchased MM code to your Disney account and ends at 5:59am EST on the following day. (i.e. The 1D Memory Maker can be purchased in the app, after you have a photo loaded into your account, click on the photo, and you will get the option to purchase either the 30-day MM for $169, or the 1-day MM for $69).

PhotoPass photographers will take Magic Shots during the party where you will pose and when you see the photos afterward, you'll see something magically inserted into the photo.

Foodie Guide to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2019 at Magic Kingdom Park

🎄Snow on Main Street, U.S.A.
This isn’t “real” snow, it is actually imitation snow. There is a “snowfall” on Main Street (Between Casey's Corner & the Emporium) before the parades and then at the end of the evening. There is also snow on Main Street after the fireworks. It can snow intermittently on Main Street, but there is not snow during A Frozen Holiday Wish or the Fireworks. There is also snow in Tomorrowland immediately following A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show.

🎄What are the times for Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade?
Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade runs at 8:30pm and 11:00pm.


It has been discussed that the second parade is less crowded than the first. There are advantages and disadvantages to both depending on your party size/age and party plans.

FYI: The parade route begins in Frontierland, follows the waterway until it reaches Liberty Square, crosses the Liberty Square bridge, circles Central Plaza in front of Cinderella's Castle, then heads down Main Street, U.S.A., where it ends next to Harmony Barbershop.


2019: Forky from Toy Story has been added to the parade.

🎄What time is Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks?
Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks shows at 10:00pm.

Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season (2018 and Prior).

MVMCP Dining FAQ

🎄 Can I make ADRs in the Magic Kingdom WITHOUT a party ticket?
Yes, you can make your reservations up until 6:00pm. Please note you will be asked to leave the property as soon as your dining experience is complete. If you have not purchased a MVMCP ticket, you can purchase a same day ticket IF the party has not sold out.

🎄Should I eat in a Disney Restaurant while the party is going on? Will I miss something?
This is subjective, and you will see conflicting opinions posted on various threads. Remember - you can enter the park at 4pm if you have purchased a MVMCP ticket. Most agree that you should eat either before, or during the 4-7pm time periods so you DO NOT waste time/miss the Christmas Festivities.

2019:

:santa: Can I purchase Memory Maker for MVMCP ONLY?
Yes, Disney PhotoPass now offers Memory Maker (MM) One Day (Disney PhotoPass Website Updated on 1/16/19).

The Memory Maker Window begins at 6:00am EST on the day you use the 1D theme park admission with which MM is bundled at purchase or if MM was purchased separately, the date the photo selected on the MDE app, or of applicable, on MyDisneyPhotoPass.com when purchasing MM or when linking a previously purchased MM code to your Disney account and ends at 5:59am EST on the following day.(i.e. The 1D Memory Maker can be purchased in the app, after you have a photo loaded into your account, click on the photo, and you will get the option to purchase either the 30-day MM for $169, or the 1-day MM for $69).


PhotoPass photographers will take Magic Shots during the party where you will pose and when you see the photos afterward, you'll see something magically inserted into the photo.

    What we know....
    Purchased Tickets for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Will Remain Valid Despite Recent Disney World Cancellations (5/29/20)
    No new tickets are being sold for this year’s Halloween Party dates
    . That means guests who have already purchased tickets are good to go; your tickets are valid. However if you were waiting to purchase a ticket, Cast Members have confirmed that no new tickets are being sold at this time.

    Now whether or not this means Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties will happen or not, there is no confirmation at this time. The 2020 separately-ticket parties are scheduled to begin August 13th and run on select nights through November 1st. That doesn’t leave Disney with a lot of time to get its stuff figured out since Magic Kingdom's reopening date is July 11th.

    Disney has stated that everything is subject to change, so things might be altered at any time. It’s also worth noting that if Disney reopens with their proposed plan to halt fireworks, parades, and character meet-and-greets, it’s possible that many of the experiences people are eager to experience at the Halloween parties may be altered or missing entirely.


    Disney World Cancels ALL Disney Dining Plans And Current Dining Reservations (5/29/20)
    Following our earlier observation that dining reservations and the Disney Dining Plan were unable to be booked at this time, we now have some more details to share. It looks like guests planning to visit after Disney World's reopening will NOT be permitted to have a Disney Dining Plan initially, among other big changes!

    According to Disney, “we have made the difficult decision to cancel all existing dining reservations and experience bookings, including Disney dining plans included in packages.” Additionally, Disney stated, “We will reopen dining and experience bookings with more limited numbers closer to when the parks reopen. We will also shift from a 180-day booking window to a 60-day booking window for dining and experience bookings going forward to allow Guests to make their plans closer to their visits.”

    Note that the statement from Disney specifies impacted reservations will be from May 28th, 2020 all the way to September 26th, 2021. This is due to international bookings being made into 2021.

    NOTE: This DOES NOT MEAN that Disney will not have dining reservations or Disney Dining Plans in 2021, as far as we know. It only means that they’re clearing out their current bookings so that they can release a new system to accommodate the lower capacity that the parks, restaurants, and hotels will be servicing.

    Disney has also stated select third-party dining and experiences possibly may not be canceled at this time. So be sure to check your My Disney Experience when you can.

    Guests who hold a resort reservation or a canceled dining reservation will be given priority rebooking once that is announced.

    Walt Disney World Resort Phased Reopening and Important Information (5/27/20)

    Phased Reopening of Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort (5/16/20)
    Wednesday, May 20, will be a great first step in the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort, as Disney Springs begins its initial reopening that morning. Next week, many of our third-party operating participants will open their doors to Disney Springs guests. On May 27, three Disney-owned and -operated stores and venues will reopen: World of Disney, D-Luxe Burger (mobile order) and the Marketplace Co-Op. You can visit DisneySprings.com/reopening for the most current information on which locations are open.

    Thank you for the thread. Is MVMCP always dark/not held Thanksgiving week and is that trend expected to continue for 2020?

    I'm looking forward in going to this again. Last year we had lots of rain, and I couldn't get another MVMCP ticket since the last days were sold out.

    Thank you for the thread. Is MVMCP always dark/not held Thanksgiving week and is that trend expected to continue for 2020?
    Typically there is a party the Friday before Thanksgiving and then the next one the Sunday after Thanksgiving. However, last year there was a party the Sunday before (w/o) Thanksgiving.
