Possible changes coming to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party characters

Bert, Mr. Penguin and Mary Poppins met in the Magic Kingdom during daylight hours in 2010


I’ve heard that Mary Poppins, Bert and the Penguins may be moving into Fantasyland near the Carousel for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parties this year.  I also heard that the Tremaine Family will not be returning for 2013.

Princess Fairytale Hall Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Cinderella and Charming. (4)Cinderella and her Prince will meet in Princess Fairytale Hall along with Aurora & Phillip.  On the other side of Fairytale Hall, it will still be Rapunzel and Flynn along with Snow White and her Prince.

Many people have been hoping for the return of the Beauty and the Beast meet and greet in her beautiful Christmas dress, but I’ve still not received any information that they will be returning as a couple to the party.  They could, but no solid rumors that I’ve heard.  She should begin meeting at Akershus in this dress sometime after Thanksgiving.

I would expect Scrooge to meet in the same location as Daisy and Donald.  I’m not sure if the 3 of them will meet together or rotate in some fashion.

I’ve heard that we should not expect Jack and Sally to return for the Christmas Parties as it is the same location that is used for the Santa Claus meet and greet in Town Square.

Celebrate the Magic should offer a special Christmas version before the fireworks each night as well.

Remember, rumors aren’t NEWS, they are posted for discussion of events that MAY or may not happen.


NOTE:  The Disney Parks Blog just announced that the Jingle Cruise and Merida’s meet will remain open for the parties.

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.


  1. Do you know when the gingerbread house will go up at grand floridian?
    Also, this is our first time attending MVMCP. Are the lines for the rides long?

    Thanks for all your info! Love your website!

    • There really aren’t any lines for rides during parties. Peter Pan is about the only one with a wait, so do it early in the day or use FP during the day. Not sure about Grand Gingerbread, but it should be soon.

  2. Thanks so much Kenny! This will be our 1st MVMCP and your info is invaluable. We’ll keep posted on what rumors may turn into news :).

  3. Is Scrooge a sure thing in all parties? And when should we get a schedule? I’m planning a 2014 trip and I’m already worrying about meeting Scrooge. He’s my favorite character and it’s next to impossible to meet him anywhere else besides the party.

  4. Thanks for posting this info! So will Scrooge be at Storybook Circus with Donald and Daisy? First time attending MVMCP. Thanks!

  5. Thanks for this…not getting to a party but hoping Belle will be wearing the holiday dress during our Christmas Eve breakfast at Akershus

  6. We are headed to WDW in December and have party tickets for 1 night. What she we expect at the party? Is it basically all meet n greet with characters?

    • Lori, click Events > Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for all the details.

      There’s special fireworks, special entertainment, special parade, meet and greets and free cookies and hot chocolate
