Will be there in December again!! Watching now for new info., will be interesting to watch it all unfold with the opening of GE. We do love DW during the holidays!
We will be there 12/08-12/24, would like to catch an earlier party in hopes it won't be so crowded (doubt it!). We usually choose a 16th or 18th date. I don't think it matters, really , except in price - later ones tend to cost a bit more.Us too! Booked 12/20-12/27 and hoping to catch one of the last parties.
Yes, both a garden and terrace party have been offered in the past years. Parade viewing has not been included with a MVMCP dessert party since 2016. Tony's Town Square started a new dining experience with parade viewing last year which seemed very popular and sold out multiple nights so that will most likely be the only experience with parade viewing area again this year.Do they offer dessert parties at MVMCP?
If so, are they for fireworks only or also the parade?
The first page tells you which dates sold out last 3 years. They do not sell out quickly, so you have some time to decide once dates are announced. Personally once I find out which dates coincide with my vacation and price I want to pay, I buy. Happy planning.How quickly do the tickets sell out? planning my first trip to WDW in 15 years. I had no idea I had to plan that far ahead.
Thanks - I'll be pulling the trigger on a hotel this weekend so I think we'll be prepared to buy the tickets in March. It all seems a little crazy to me. I'm used to planning my Disneyland Halloween party plan in May(and that was just locking in the hotel) and here I am planning a Christmas time(2nd week of December) visit to WDW almost a year in advance.The first page tells you which dates sold out last 3 years.

Haha. I was doing the same thing this time last year. Have fun!Thanks - I'll be pulling the trigger on a hotel this weekend so I think we'll be prepared to buy the tickets in March.

Do you mean which of the free treats are not to be missed?Aiming for a party, the week before Thanksgiving. We did MNSSHP the last time we went and missed all of the complimentary snack stuff. This time, I am planning early. What is your "not to be missed" holiday treat?
We have gone 3 times over Christmas and absolutely love it. DD gets out of school b/t 15th-18th depending on how week falls. We go for 8-10D depending, and go to MVMCP (x2 if dates work in our favor). The closer you get to Christmas, 23rd & 24th, you can really feel the difference in the crowds. We always have a plan, and have 2 TS meals a day to rest, regroup. We always go to MK on Christmas, arrive around 6:45am, this is one of our favorite times and can ride lots of rides. Now this past year, they let everyone in, then had a holding point in Tomorrowland, and onsite guests had to check-in again. Not a fan of this, slowed us down, would have needed to be there 6:30am. Muffin or fruit on way to park. QS around 9ish. FP+ not until Noon, then in a row, with a TS meal. We leave around 2-3pm depending on crowds. Lots of people trying to see Christmas parade (we saw @ MVMCP & love it at night more), so some rides have short waits during parade. Eat dinner on property but not in a park. We have done HDDMR (x2) & Boathouse. If you have a plan, ADRs, FP+ and can be flexible (go with the flow), it's an awesome time to visit!Hello all,
So I have a question for those who have been to the parks during the dreaded Christmas week...I want to know...Is it REALLY that terrifying? Because I keep reading all these posts saying DON'T DO IT. DO NOT GO TO DISNEY DURING CHRISTMAS TIME UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES...but really, how bad is it? Let me just say this, I have absolutely zero expectations. My son will be 6 years old, he could not care less for thrill rides, he does not care about the big attractions. He just wants to go to Peter Pan and the Kilimanjaro Safari, so we are just going for the experience really, the atmosphere; rides are not important to us at this point (we just came back from a trip in May anyway, and we've been to WDW plenty of times before). Bottom line is...is it REALLY that scary??
