Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is in the middle of its 2015 run at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. One of the best things about the party is the wide variety of special entertainment. From a parade that’s sure to get you in the Christmas spirit to a holiday show with mischievous Stitch to fireworks that light up the sky each night of the party, it’s well worth the extra ticket cost. The videos below show much of the entertainment to give you a little taste of what you’ll experience if you go to the party this year. Add special character photo ops, cookies, cocoa, snow on Main Street USA, and of course many of your favorite rides and you have the makings of a perfect evening. If you don’t have tickets already, check out available dates and buy them on the official website.

Celebrate the Season
Celebration the Season is an annual tradition for many families at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It’s a cute, character-filled show that takes place on the stage in front of Cinderella Castle several times each night. The younger kids in particularly get a kick out of seeing Micky, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and their other Disney friends singing and dancing in the holiday spirit.
A Frozen Holiday Wish
This year, Anna, Elsa, and Olaf return to the Magic Kingdom, where Elsa uses her special brand of magic to light up Cinderella Castle with a wintry glow. It takes place on the castle stage each night, where you’ll see the plain castle light up in all its holiday glory.
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime parade takes to the streets of the Magic Kingdom twice each evening. It’s packed with colorful floats, Disney friends, and Christmas characters, including gingerbread men, toy soldiers, and of course Santa Claus himself. The later parade is usually less crowded if you want to minimize the time you spend staking out a prime viewing spot.
A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas
What happens when Stitch gets a little confused about the concept of Santa Claus? Find out in “A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas,” a show that also features Pixar favorites like Buzz Lightyear and Mike Wazowski. Thankfully, by the end Stitch understands what the holiday is all about and why Santa keeps track of who’s naught and nice.
Celebrate the Magic Holidays
If you like the Celebrate the Magic castle show, you’ll love the holiday version. About eight minutes into the show, things take a decidedly Christmasy twist. See cute scenes like Cinderella Castle wrapped up like a giant present and Santa flying by on his way to deliver presents to all the good boys and girls.
