Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Shows

Updated 10/28/2018

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Entertainment includes Mickey’s Merriest Celebration, A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas,  Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade , Holiday Wishes,  along with character meet and greets and free cookies!  The dance parties offer you an opportunity to dance the night away with your favorite character and are available throughout the party.   I recommend visiting Celebrate the Season, A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas and the dance parties later into the night in order to make the most of your limited time.

A Frozen Holiday Wish – Cinderella Castle Dream Lighting


Cinderella Castle Dream Lighting (A Frozen Holiday Wish is presented every night from early November through New Year’s, the Castle is awash in over 200,000 glimmering lightcicles.  It’s a great site to behold and there’s a short show that ties it all together involving  Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf!  You can see this show ANY holiday season night, so save it for a different night and get in line to meet the Dwarfs!

Holiday Wishes Fireworks

Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party Holiday Wishes

Holiday Wishes is a fantastic fireworks show. It combines pyrotechnics and festive holiday music and even has a 180 degree finale of vibrant explosions that will really shake you. It’s a pleasant mixture of reds and greens presented with number pyro giftboxs.  Be sure to stand somewhere behind the Walt and Mickey statue. If you get too close, you’ll miss some of the timed fireworks. If you get too far away, you won’t be able to see the projections upon the castle. I recommend standing somewhere between Casey’s Corner and the Tip Board on Main Street for the best view. Arrive 15-30 minutes early for the best locations.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade

Santa in Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
A terrific and very long Christmas parade!  During the parade many great characters parade past, but the highlights are the marching Toy Soldiers who actually play their instruments and jolly ole Saint Nick. I recommend attending the second parade. You won’t have to secure a spot as early. The best spots for the first parade are usually taken 60 minutes early and the same spots could be found for the second parade 15-30 minutes early.The “Kringle Krew” will appear along Main Street prior to each parade performance to dance with willing guests and get them into the spirit of the season.

A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show

Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party A Totally Tomorrowland ChristmasA Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show is like no other Christmas celebration.  Stitch doesn’t understand the meaning of Christmas and it takes Buzz and Mike Wazowski to keep him from laser blasting Santa out of the sky.  It’s a hokey, but fun show that includes a Michael Jackson style dance number.  It takes about 20 minutes and there’s no crowd for the final show of the night!  It’s a great way to close the night.

  1. “Flag Retreat – showtime 5:00: Once you pass through the tunnels of the Walt Disney World Railroads Main Street station you’ll see Santa Claus meeting guests near the flagpole in the middle of Main Street. The wait to see Santa should be less than 20 minutes so see him now.” Is this something that still happens? And if so – is it a “sit in Santa’s lap & tell him what you want for Xmas” type opportunity for kids?

  2. Did the fireworks/parade times change from last year? I noticed your times were different from what’s listed on other sites…

  3. When would I’ll be able to get the current times for all shows in all parks for my trip: Nov 26 to December 4 2015? So I can do accurate touring plans.
    Thank you very much!

    • 100% accurate schedules are posted the weekend prior. Most show schedules are similar weekly, but some could change.

  4. What would you recommend for a schedule for the evening? 915 – celebrate the magic, 930 wishes, 1030 parade, dance parties, 1120 celebrate the season, 1145 tomorrowland christmas???

  5. Question – I know that in front of the castle/main street are the best places to watch the fireworks. do you think there are any good spots in fantasyland/liberty square or behind the castle? trying to plan things out without a lot of back and forth. thanks!! great site!!

    • Behind castle is an interesting view, but no projections on castle. You can see some from other areas, but certainly not preferred.

  6. Can you watch the Celebrate the Season show and the parade from the same spot? There’s not much time between them so I figured we could get settled in the same spot for both without moving. If so what spot would you recommend?

    Also, is it better in your opinion to see the characters first before focusing on the shows and fireworks later in the evening?

      • I think I will take that advice as well. Kenny we are there December 8th for my wife’s 40th. I think i read that they have moved filming to that day. Any hints on how to get the kids involved and maybe into some of the filmed area? We plan to wear Christmas gear for starters. But this is our first Christmas and never realized they do filming.
