Disney World- Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Tips and Tricks
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is the best place to spend your Holidays. Even so, there are some tips and tricks that could make the experience even better!
- When buying Christmas merchandise in the gift shops, you can ask the cashier to hold onto the item for you. You may find yourself acquiring ornaments or snow globes that can get heavy or that are very fragile. The cashier will send all your purchases during the party to one shop (usually the main gift shop when entering/leaving the park) for you to pick up at the end of the day. This way you won’t need a locker and you won’t lose or break your stuff.
- Give children a pre-determined spending limit on Disney merchandise. This way they will know how much stuff they can buy/ask for before they get to the store. It makes it easier to keep track of spending/how much stuff you’re taking home. It also lets them pick a great item that is worth as much as a whole lot of smaller items/candy.
- Due to the new liquid limitations on airplanes, snow globes should be packed in checked luggage or mailed home for families that are flying. Keep this in mind when you’re in the gift shop picking them out, and pack them securely so they don’t break from being tossed around.
- It is a good idea to bring an additional carry on or luggage with you full of snacks. This way you don’t have to keep buying munchies for the kids and you have an empty bag to fill with gifts and merchandise on the way home.
- Get in line early for the parades, as they are the event’s most popular attraction.
- For large parties with children, dining plans are a must. Also, where applicable, refillable cups are great for the whole family!
- Bring some Christmas gifts and snacks with you, even if it’s still early in the season. It is fun to have a small celebration in the room after or before the party, and it can help cut down on the “gimmies” at the park.
- It can be great to see Christmas from the eyes of a child. Getting disposable cameras and handing them out to kids on the trip can add some fun, unexpected pictures to the album later on.
- Take family photos early on in the party, since it goes on into the night. This way you wont forget, and you can have enough light for photos.
- Adding another Christmas celebration to your trip, such as the Candlelight Processional or the Osborne family lights is a great way to spend another day at the parks, with a nighttime celebration that is included with the price of their park’s admission.
- Getting food to go and eating it in line, or while waiting for the parade to begin is the best way to kill two birds with one stone without missing any of the action.
