Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Why does Mickey 's Very Merry Christmas parade end before Christmas day?
  • - Asked by mechele from Florida on 11/3/2013
  • Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Mechele!

    I just love the holidays at Disney World. The parks and resort are so beautiful!

    Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is part of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) which is held at the Magic Kingdom in early November up until about a week before Christmas. The 2013 MVMCP events are being held on select evenings beginning November 8th - December 20th.  

    However, beginning December 21, 2013, Guests visiting the Magic Kingdom will be able to enjoy some of the things that, up until that time, will only be offered during MVMCP.  Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade will run in the afternoon December 21st through December 31st, 2013 instead of the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade.  You can also see Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season as the featured nighttime extravaganza December 21st through December 31st, 2013. 

    To check the schedules on the day of your visit, pick up a Times Guides as you enter the park, at most merchandise locations or Guest Relations. You can also find entertainment schedules by downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile App. This app is free and available for both iPhones and Androids.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions.  We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
