Although I have not yet been at Walt Disney World to celebrate the “Mickeys Very Merry Christmas” celebration, I do know some very interesting things about it, from what I have learned and have been told, it is a must do for all families.
At the Magic Kingdom the Christmas tree seems to touch the sky, it is 65 feet tall, with a 40 foot star on top, weighing approximately 30,000 pounds, with 5500 twinkling lights. Some other interesting details about the tree are as follows, there is approximately 430 feet of garland, 325 ornaments, 275 feet of strung popcorn, and 400 flickering candles.
New for the 2014 Holiday season, the Christmas parade is being called, “ Disney’s Frozen Christmas Celebration,” I wonder what characters will be there? As well, the show, “ A Frozen Holiday Wish will be shown from November 5th, 2014- December 31, 2014 at 6:15pm and 7:30pm.
With all of these wonderful celebrations and festivities, there is also hot chocolate, cookies and snow flurries, holiday shows and fireworks.
Watch at night as “Cinderella's Castle” turns into icicles.
Oh, and don't forget Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus next to City Hall, you little ones eyes will not know which way to look. Can you imagine their expressions.
What a great time of year to visit the "Magic Kingdom." On selected nights in September and October you and your family or friends, can purchase tickets to celebrate"The, Mickeys, Not So Scary Halloween Party." You and your little ones or big ones, can join in on the festivities of the evening from trick or treating, character meet and greets, and fantastic parades..
My family and I have been able to attend "The Mickeys, Not So Scary Halloween Party" a few times, and my best advice is,
1) Have a nap sometime during the day of the party, as the gates open at 7pm and close at midnight or there after, little ones and big ones can become tired and cranky. So, an afternoon nap allows everyone to enjoy there Halloween party, after all you paid to get in, you want to enjoy every minute.
2) Wear comfortable shoes, even if your little character, such as a princess wants to wear the glittery princess shoes, take along a pair of slip ons, or running shoes. After 5 hours of trick or treating, and walking from rides to parade locations, comfortable shoes, can prevent tears and blisters..
3) Have you family choose costumes that are going to be easy to wear, lightweight as the Florida weather can be very warm even that late in the evening, also easy to walk around in. I seen a number of little girls getting their flowing gowns stepped on nearly tripping them.
