Disney World Cancels 2020 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party


2020: A Twinkle of Holiday Magic


Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom has been canceled for 2020.

A Twinkle of Holiday Magic:  Instead of the featured evening holiday parade, there will be shorter and more frequent “Character Cavalcades” throughout the day and evening at Magic Kingdom.  The cavalcade parade times are unannounced to keep guests from lining up on the sidewalks.

The Character Cavalcades Holiday parades will look different this year.  Much shorter parades with fewer characters.  A 5 minute parade down Main Street USA.

The Character Cavalcades will take on a special holiday twist starting November 6th, with Christmas friends on festive floats wearing their holiday finest. The cavalcades will feature Gingerbread Men, Holiday Elves, and Reindeer. Also, the beloved Toy Soldiers will join the Main Street Philharmonic as they march through Magic Kingdom Park bringing musical holiday cheer for all to hear.

The Toy Soldiers will be back, but not as many.   And, no Dream Lights this year.

“We know these experiences are a cherished part of holiday traditions that will be missed by guests and cast members alike, but we’re glad to be able to bring holiday magic in other creative ways,” Laurel Slater, manager of communications for Disney World.

The Cinderella Castle Dream Lights have also been canceled.  Instead, evenings at the Magic Kingdom will feature projection effects on the Cinderella Castle “with a kaleidoscope of designs, including a whimsical Christmas sweater and a regal overlay of red, green and gold ornamentation,” Disney states. “The iconic castle will provide the perfect colorful background for guests seeking a magical holiday portrait.”

Guests are reminded to wear their face masks at all times, including during photo ops.  Photos taken of guests while not wearing face masks on rides will not be available.  This includes photos where guests not in your party aren’t wearing their face masks.

New shorter Disney World park hours for November 2020.  The Magic Kingdom is closing early at 6pm.  Sunset in Orlando in November is around 5:30pm.


Special holiday parade, snow falling on Main Street USA, Castle Dream Lights, free cookies and cocoa…all of it wonderful!!!  If you go in early November through mid-December (excluding Thanksgiving Week), the party crowds are very light.

2020 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party  ******CANCELED!!!!!******

April 8, 2020:  Yes, Disney World is still closed, but the party dates and tickets costs for the 2020 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party were posted on the Walt Disney World webpage today. The MVMCP runs November 8 – December 22, 2020 this year.

Mickey and Minnie will be in their holiday outfits.

Events of the party include: complimentary sugar cookies and hot cocoa, character meet and greets in holiday costumes available only at the party, a special Frozen fireworks show, and one of Disney World’s best holiday parades.
