- Rides and Attractions
Most rides and attractions remain open during the party and because total park capacity is a little lower than on a “normal” day, lines are a little shorter. There’s also a 6:00pm virtual queue exclusivly for guests attending MVMCP. You’ll need access to the My Disney Experience app to make use of that.
- Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show
There’s a special fireworks show that is synced up with holiday carols like Deck the Halls and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. While the show can be seen throughout the Magic Kingdom, there’s also some special holiday themed lights and projections Cinderella’s Castle that look best when you can see the front of the castle.
- Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
The 25 minute parade celebrates the season with characters like dancing gingerbread men, marching toy soldiers, and many other Disney characters — all strolling by in a festive procession which closes out with Santa Claus riding high atop his sleigh wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. This parade can only be seen at night during the MVMCP events and does feature some characters in holiday costumes that are unique to this parade.
