If you’re planning to spend some of the winter holiday season at Walt Disney World, you’ll want to make the yuletide extra gay by attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom. The special hard-ticket event transforms the park with special decorations, glittering holiday lights, fun character photos, snow on Main Street, U.S.A., and some of the best Disney entertainment you’ll see all year.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is only held on select nights: November 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 16, 25, 27 and 29; and December 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20 and 21. The party runs from 7 p.m.-midnight, but the big secret is that party ticket holders may enter the park as early as 4 p.m. to enjoy regular park offerings.

Some of our favorite party fun includes:

A Frozen Holiday Wish
Head to Sleeping Beauty castle by dusk this special show. Watch as royal sisters Anna and Elsa lead a celebration for their friends on the Castle Forecourt Stage that culminates in Queen Elsa using her incredible powers to transform Cinderella Castle into a shimmering ice palace for the holidays.

Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration
Later in the night, the Castle forecourt is transformed into Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration stage show. Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto, and many others who drop by on Mickey’s party dressed in their Christmas best, ready to ring in the season with holidays with carols, old and new.

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
We’re already humming the main theme to the Christmas parade at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. From marching toy soldiers to dancing gingerbread me, from Disney characters in their holiday finest to Santa Claus, and presents and dancers galore. This parade is a visual holiday feast.

Holiday Wishes Fireworks– Celebrate the Spirit of the Season
Be sure to stick around for the event’s big dramatic conclusion. The special fireworks show set to holiday tunes will light up the sky with Christmas cheer.

Of course, this being Christmas, there will be hot cocoa and cookies and character greetings with characters in their holiday outfits including Jack Skellington as Sandy Claws and Scrooge McDuck. Plus there is event specific merchandise and the opportunity to dress up with your holiday flair!
