Last week we went over holiday attractions to see at Disney Springs. This week, let\’s take a look at the special holidays things to do while at the Magic Kingdom!
A Frozen Holiday Wish features Anna and Elsa in an all-new show on the Castle Forecourt Stage. With special appearances by rugged mountain man Kristoff and lovable snowman Olaf, the show culminates in Queen Elsa using her incredible powers to present a gift to everyone in the kingdom, transforming Cinderella Castle into a glimmering ice palace for the holidays. \”A Frozen Holiday Wish\” shows every night at 6:15pm. It\’ll show again later during party hours on party nights, too.
Jingle Cruise – The Jingle Cruise overlay consists of decorations in the show scenes of the Jungle Cruise attraction and a new Christmas-themed spiel from the skippers who are “homesick” and wanting to celebrate Christmas. This is really cute–think funny cheesy skipper jokes in a Christmas theme!
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a separately ticketed event held after hours on select nights in November and December! During the party, you can enjoy most of the rides, meet characters, see Santa, watch the holiday parade, and the beautiful Christmas fireworks! The parade, Mickey\’s Once Upon a Christmastime parade, is so much fun with our favorite Disney characters and some special Christmas additions. Don\’t miss the Holiday Wishes fireworks! TIP: The parties are only held until December 21. If you visit after December 21, the party parade can be seen nightly inside the park during normal park hours!
In the Magic Kingdom, Santa makes an appearance at the end of Mickey\’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade at Mickey\’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Admission to the party requires a separate ticket. He can often be found during the day between Town Hall and the Fire Department where the area is transformed into Candy Cane Garden. If he\’s not called back to the North Pole, Santa likely will be in the Magic Kingdom on Dec. 20 to 24.
Special food additions at Magic Kingdom include the holiday cinnamon roll and an ornament gingerbread cookie which can both be found at the Main Street Bakery as well as a peppermint ice cream sundae available at The Plaza. Peppermint soft serve is available at Storybook Treats. Try the chocolate Yule Log at Main Street Bakery and the Christmas cookie milkshake at Auntie Gravity\’s.
And of course, festive decorations on Main Street and a huge Christmas tree add to the holiday feel!
