Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Characters

Updated 10/28/2018

It’s important that your family makes a plan of the things they wish to experience during the party so they don’t spend their time wandering around the park. When it comes to characters you should pick the ones you find have the greatest importance. To some people, meeting with the 7 Dwarves will rank high, while others may wish to see Captain Jack Sparrow and another family may want to visit with every Prince at the party. Know who you want to see and set a reasonable goal. It’s not impossible to meet every character, but you won’t have time for any other element of the party to attempt this.

Moana

Moana is coming to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

Moana made her Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party debut in 2017.  She was super popular.

Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps

Nick and Judy, usually they have only appeared in dance party type events here in Florida.  I’m sure this meet will be VERY popular!  I’ll be sure to include their schedule and touring plans on Character Locator!

Jack Skellington as “Sandy Claws”

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom November 2014 (4)

Jack Skellington appears as “Sandy Claws.  I expect this meet to be VERY popular and people will line up very early as detailed on Character Locator.

7 Dwarfs:

If you wish to meet the 7 Dwarves, (Snow White doesn’t meet with them) you’ll want to line up early as detailed on my Character Locator Touring Plans.  Why would I recommend spending all that time in line? Well, if you don’t line up early, you’ll still be in that line later and you’ll miss precious party time. By lining up early, you’ll have the full 5 hours to do the other things you wish during the actual party.

Santa Claus

We met Santa in the Magic Kingdom December 2009

Santa creates very long lines.  However, you can meet him during the day at Hollywood Studios and Disney Springs beginning  Mid-November or in the Magic Kingdom during the day or in Epcot with Mrs. Claus after Thanksgiving and save yourself a lot of waiting at the party.

Princesses with their Princes:

Rapunzel and Flynn Rider

Rapunzel and Flynn Rider

If the rare characters above aren’t your highest priority, you may wish to line up for some of these Lords and Ladies early. Flynn Rider is VERY popular and VERY chatty, so even with all the Disney Magic, he still builds a long line. If you don’t wish to arrive early, come back late for the shortest waits.

Captain Jack Sparrow:

Captain Jack is popular, but not as much as he is during the Halloween Parties.  I guess people are looking for characters with holiday touches.

Aladdin & Abu, Jasmine & Genie

They will wear Christmas scarves.

Aladdin was typically meeting with Abu and Jasmine with Genie. They offer specific set meet times that are found on Character Locator.

Minnie Mouse with Daisy Duck

Scrooge McDuck and Donald Duck meet together

Santa Goofy

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom November 2014 (85)

Goofy is located beside the Barnstormer Goofy attraction and his waits are lowest late in the party.  You can also meet Santa Goofy in Animal Kingdom.

Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet

The party has all four of the Pooh characters together in one meet. Each are wearing a festive scarf .  They typically have a 30 minute wait and often see their line cut before they even arrive for the next set. Be sure to check Character Locator for their full schedule!

Mickey Mouse

Mickey meets in his normal location, but changes over to special Christmas attire promptly at 7pm for party guests only.

Mary Poppins and Bert

Dance Party

There’s really no reason to arrive early for a Dance Party.  Reindeer, Polar Bears and Elves are your host at Cosmic Ray’s.  Also, new for this year will be the Disney Junior Jingle Jam.  They no longer pose for photos or sign autographs, they are just there to dance with you.  You might grab a selfie or two though.

Country Bears

They also meet during the day in the Magic Kingdom, but do wear scarves for the party.

VISIT DURING THE DAY CHARACTERS

It’s my opinion that I don’t waste my precious and expensive party time visiting characters that I could easily see during the day in the same costuming. Perhaps you only have one day at Walt Disney World or you aren’t planning to be in the Magic Kingdom any mornings, in those cases it would make sense to visit these characters if they are important to you. Those who meet in the exact same costume during the day include:

  • Belle in Epcot
  • Peter Pan
  • Country Bears

Are characters available for the whole party until midnight? Do lines die down as it gets later in the night or should you really just get in line early for characters you really want to meet?

Hi Kenny, thanks for your post, very helpful info!

We really want to see Captain Jack Sparrow and will be there December 8th. I saw you recommended meeting him after the second parade. I was wondering, does he usually meet throughout the whole party? Do they cut his line at a certain time before the end of the party? Do people usually line up early, before the party to meet him? Thanks!

This info is from 2016. I'll have 2017 info on www.characterlocator.com after the 1st party.

For Belle's meet and greet is it her normal Enchanted Tales program or do you get to meet just Belle and talk to her at the Christmas Party?
