Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is held on select nights in November and December.  Cast members can get discounted tickets (30% off) for the parties held in November.

Anna and Queen Elsa

Anna and Queen Elsa from Frozen (new parade addition for 2014)

We thought the nighttime parade was great, especially the new elements.  The gang from ‘Frozen’ was all there:  Kristoff in a horse-drawn sleigh, Olaf has his own float, and Anna and Queen Elsa ride along in an icy blue illuminated carriage.

Olaf is new to the parade this year.

Olaf is new to the parade this year.  He was great, waving and dancing to the music!

Our Magical Moment was when the girl next to Elly started yelling at Kristoff, and he waved wildly at her.  Elly turned and recognized her as the “friend of Anna” from Hollywood Studios!!

The snow machines on the rooftops were set to maximum!

The snow machines on the rooftops were set to maximum!  It was like a blizzard on Main Street!

The ‘snow’ machines were turned on high at the start of the parade and the buildings all along Main Street were illuminated in greens and reds.  The holiday music was so wonderful.  The smell of baking sugar cookies was in the air.  (Free cookies and hot cocoa are available at several of the restaurants from 7pm-Midnight.)

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
