    I say yes. It's fun: lots of different character meet and greets. Like the princes meeting with their princesses (like Flynn Rider :lovestruc ) and all seven dwarves out together. There's also the parade and the stage show and snow on Main St. I've taken my brother and my husband and they both had a great time!

    We are taking our DD (she will be just turned 4) and I can't wait! I'd say definitely go for it! We plan on going on a non park day so she can be fully rested for it and enjoy it as much as possible. I'm eagerly waiting for the dates to be released so I can chose which night we will go! :hyper:

    I've never attended this event.
    Wondering if this event is worth it, price wise.
    Only planning on spending 3 days in the Magic Kingdom, will have a 4 year old and a 17 year old. I understand the park will close to non attendees.
    Any other positives about the event? Do you see the castle all lit up on regular nights?

    Yes! DH and I have been several times before and it's really fun. Snowing on Main Street, the characters are in their Christmas outfits, and there are virtually no lines for the rides (unless you go to a sold out party, but even still they aren't bad). We were at a sold out party last year and still only waited 10-15 for the major rides.

    YES YES YES!! Easily our favorite time of our vacation. The parade is amazing, and the park is so easy to enjoy during the party. Very few (if any) lines, free cookies and hot cocoa, dance parties, and of course, special Wishes.

    LOVED IT :)

    We were at WDW with our 3 1/2 year old granddaughter in February. She would have the typical toddler meltdown around early evening. She was not the only one, either. You saw plenty of kids that age being totally overwhelmed by that time. If you want to do it for ourselves, then fine. But don't go there just for her benefit. She'll probably enjoy the pool or playing with a bug on the sidewalk more then this event after a full day at the parks.

    It is really expensive, too.

    DD I a non sleeping maniac. She sleeps 6 hrs at night. No naps. I've never seen anything like it! Lol we easily spend 10 hrs a day at Sea World so I wasn't too concerned about her staying up. She is never asleep before 11 pm anyways. I was going to (hopefully) schedule this for our last night (Friday) with an "easy" day that day.

    How far in advance do tickets need to be purchased? We are planning to go the first week in December but not 100%. I would like to wait until it gets really close so I can check the weather and pick the best night temperature wise. Are the tickets non-refunable? Another reason I would like to wait until it gets closer, but don't want it to sell out and not be able to get tickets.

    It's usually just recommended not to go on Fridays because those tend to be more crowded due to locals.

    It's unlikely that a party the first week of December will sell out. The tickets are non-refundable.

    Do they give out some kind of schedule of activities for the MVMCP? I am most interested in knowing what times the parade and fireworks would be. Are the times the same for every night of the party?

    The schedule of events will be on the park map, which will likely get posted (or at least a link to it) after the first party has taken place. The times are the same every night.

    based on last years party schedule:

    Mickey's once upon a Christmas parade was at 815 and 1030

    Holiday Wishes was at 930

    Totally tomorrowland Christmas show was at 745, 845, 955, 1050 and 1145

    Celebrate the Season show (castle stage) was at 745, 1005 and 1120

    would think they would have the same times for the above this coming year!

    Hello all - a cast member just told my mom we did not need park admission if we just go to party. I thought we did - Cant imagine paying for a day and not using it. Does anyone know for sure?
