Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 2013
The Magic Kingdom is very decorated for the Christmas Holidays. The gardland you can see in the picture above does not hang over Main Street anymore because of the Festival of Fantasy parade and the height of the Maleficant float. Some people were upset with this change but it's a small price to pay to see the amazing parade. The day I attended the party was a Thursday in early November. We arrived at the park before 4 since we had park hoppers. We went to dinner and did a few rides before it started to rain (pour).
I was worried the party wouldn't be as fun but the rain stopped a little over an hour into the party. We did a few inside attractions to stay out of the rain before going to meet Scrooge McDuck, Donald, and Daisy at the New Fantasyland train station. Since it was still raining the characters were moved a few times and the pictures did not come out well due to the strange angle and the cramped space.
Next we headed to Tomorrowland for the dance party. Since the stage was wet it was cancelled but Stitch, Mike, and Buzz were meeting during the dance party time. They usually don't meet, just appear together at the dance party.
After the meet with Stitch, Mike, and Buzz we headed to Fantasyland to meet the 7 Dwarves, they only meet during MNSSHP and MVMCP and the lines can be long. They usually met in an uncovered area but since it was rainging they moved them to this small covered area. The line was long but it moved quickly. Grumpy loved my fleece!
Since we were in the area we heaeded to the Thoughtful Spot and arrived just in time to be second in line for the next Pooh and friends meet. This was a fun meet since now the only place you can meet all these charcters besides eating at the Crystal Palace.
After the Pooh meet we headed to the Diamond Horseshoe for the Woody's Dance Party. Kayte wanted a picture with Woody since she was wearing her Woody shirt. This dance party only had a few people in it. We stayed for a few short moments and moved on.
After exiting the dance party we found the line to meet the Country Bears. They also only meet at MNSSHP and MVMCP. We were second in line for this meet and the bears were excited to meet us. After meeting the bears we went for a ride on Splash Mountain before getting a spot for the parade.
The parade is lots of fun. I wished we had arrived earlier to get a better position. We had people standing infront of us but we still had a good time. After the parade we went on a few rides before heading out before the party ended.
As we were leaving snow was falling on Main Street which was a magical way to end the night! I would highly suggest attending a Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.
