    One last ? Coming in Dec with DH, DS 15 & 12. Can't decide if MVMCP would be worth $$. Would probably give up afternoon at Disney Quest to go. Thoughts? Is it that diff from seeing parks decorated during reg park hours? Thanks.

    Hi Kelly!

    Yes, yes! The Very Merry Christmas Party IS different from the regular ol' park!

    I got to got the Christmas Party last year for the first time (with my Moms Panel friends, no less!) and was so impressed! Here are some of my favorite parts:

    1. Snow! It was snowing on Main Street! I honestly cannot think of anything more magical than snow coming down on you at Disney World!

    2. Free Cookies & Cocoa! There were several stations all through the park where they were handing out cocoa and cookies. AND it was yummy!

    3. Special Shows! There were special Very Merry Christmas Party ORIGINAL shows going on all through the park. I can't remember specifically how many there were but I know I didn't see them all! And! And! A special parade! I love parades.

    4. Special Character Greetings! I saw Snow White and the Prince dressed in their winter best. Oh, it was lovely! I've never seen the two of them together for a meet and greet anyway, but dressed in special clothes was just amazing! (I also saw Aladdin and Jasmine in their Christmas clothes, too.)

    Oh, now I want to go to Disney at Christmas. *sniff*

    Now, is it worth skipping Disney Quest? Well, to me? DEFINITELY. But to a 15 and 12 year old? Well...I dunno. While I was walking around the Magic Kingdom during the party I said, "This is like coming to the park for the first time all over again." It was breathtaking.

    I'd do it if I were you! It will be a beautiful Christmas memory!
