“It’s the greatest time of year, and it’s here, help me celebrate it. With everybody here, friends so dear, let me simply state it. It’s our favorite way to spend the holiday!”
We know that it’s not Thanksgiving yet — believe me, I am dreaming of some turkey and stuffing — but that doesn’t mean that some places aren’t celebrating the holiday season early. The Walt Disney World Resort holiday season kicked off on November 11, with incredible decorations, fun merchandise, meetings with Santa Claus, and a ton of delicious, festive food.
One of the most popular parts of Christmastime at Walt Disney World is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party — a separate, hard-ticketed event that takes place at the Magic Kingdom on select nights from November 8 through December 22. If you are planning on heading down to the Most Magical Place on Earth for the merriest time of the year, and want to go to the Party, then you better get your tickets now because your choices are EXTREMELY limited.
According to the Walt Disney World Resort website, there are only two days of Very Merry Christmas Party dates left to choose from. While the list of dates lists three dates available, only two pop up when you look at the calendar of available dates. Those two dates are December 13 and December 15. While December 11 is listed as available on the list, it is sold out on the ‘Select Dates” calendar.

There had been some controversy surrounding this year’s Christmas Party. Some stated that Disney was charging more while taking away offerings like free popcorn. However, free popcorn was only available at the short-lived Disney’s Very Merriest After Hours. This year’s Christmas Party will have free cookies, cider, milk, and hot cocoa for Guests.
