Merry Christmas in July!

14 Jul

Good Sunday evening and Merry Christmas in July, everyone!

We enjoyed watching a few short Christmas movies on Netflix this weekend. I also read the boys a story from our Disney Christmas Storybook Collection tonight. I have a feeling they will want to chose their bedtime story from this book as we celebrate Christmas in July.


For this first day of Christmas in July, we’ll look at what’s coming to Disney Parks this holiday season.

Beginning at 7 p.m. (after regular park hours), guests with special event tickets to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party can enjoy all the holiday splendor with lively stage shows, spectacular fireworks, a unique holiday parade and favorite holiday traditions including complimentary cookies and hot cocoa, and snow flurries on Main Street, U.S.A. Guests can enjoy new experiences and attractions at New Fantasyland. For more information, visit www.Disneyworld.com/Christmasparty.

NOTE: this is a hard ticket special event after regular park hours; purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended. 

Santa’s elves have transformed the Magic Kingdom into a winter wonderland with festive wreaths, bows, garland, sparkling lights, parades and towering Christmas trees. The fun includes the Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season nighttime fireworks spectacular, plus live entertainment with Disney characters all dressed up for the holidays.

Cinderella Castle transforms into a glimmering ice palace for the holidays — thanks to a special effects spectacle bathing the castle in 200,000 shimmering white lights. Magic Kingdom guests are treated nightly to the dramatic castle celebration and stage show.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will have 19 magical nights from November 8-December 20. For a quarter century, Walt Disney World Resort guests have been mesmerized by this must-see event, a grandly festive tradition immersing families in the holiday spirit.
