The least expensive Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tickets are for the party nights from November 10 (the second party of the year) to November 17th.

Tickets are extremely limited, and we recommend buying them sooner rather than later. There is a chance that dates will sell out quickly, especially if they are closer to the holidays, and they might not be available the day of the event.

Unlike certain paid events, you do not need an additional theme park ticket or reservation to attend Mickey’s Very Mery Christmas Party.

You can use your ticket on the day of your event starting at 4:00 p.m. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and runs until midnight. Of course, if you want to visit the parks before 4:00 p.m., you will also need a theme park ticket and reservation. The park closes to guests who do not have a ticket to the event starting at 6:00 p.m.
