    1) Pop Century or All Star Movies for Disney Feel? 2) Christmas Party - Will rides still operate during event? Do you need a park ticket if only attending christmas party? 3) Do you need to physically check in at hotel before you can get free parking?

    Hey Jonathan-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You first trip to the “Most Magical Place on Earth” will have your heart glowing like the fireworks from Wishes nighttime spectacular.

    If you are looking for outright Disney decor then the theming of Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort is the place to be. With larger than life sized replicas of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Sorcerer Mickey Mouse, Pongo and Perdita from 101 Dalmatians and the Mighty Ducks, this resort has you covered. Disney’s Pop Century Resort is has more reference to pop culture with the Rubix Cube and Mickey Mouse Telephone. The Disney feel goes to Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort.

    Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is awesome! The hot chocolate and cookies are delicious and it snows on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park. Last year Queen Elsa “iced” Cinderella Castle with 200,000 lights and the Town Square Christmas Tree is 65 feet tall. Watch the toy soldier and gingerbread men dance the parade route during Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. You do not need a theme park ticket to get into the party, just the special party ticket. Guests are typically allowed to enter Magic Kingdom Park at 4:00 p.m. the day of their party. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party officially starts at 7:00 p.m. Most all attractions run during the party.

    You will need a parking pass to park for free so please stop by your resort and speak with the Cast Member at the front desk about the pass.

    Disney Dad Tip: I would make sure to ride the Jungle Cruise attraction. Magic Kingdom Park gets “punny" and changes the attraction to the “Jingle” Cruise with extra decorations during the holidays.

    Jonathan, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
