question Tips for MVMCP?
« Thread started on: Apr 21st, 2008, 08:19am »

We will be experiencing this for the 1st time in December. And I have many questions...
*We have a choice of two different days -- a Thursday or a Friday (12/4 or 12/5). Which would you likely choose?
*What time are you able to enter the park with your admission ticket? The party begins at 7pm, but are you able to enter earlier?
*What are the special must-see's at this event?
*Do most people dress "festively" for this?
*It is a group of 4 adults, no children, would you still say this is worth doing?

Thanks so much!

I would go with Thursday, not that I have any real basis for this, but I think more locals would be there on a Friday night when there is no school/work the next morning.
At both the Pirate & Princess Party, and MVMCP last year, we were able to enter any time after 4pm with party tickets. Most people had on Santa Mickey Ears hats, or the Minnie, Stitch, Pooh or Tigger versions. There were also a number of people with Christmasy sweatshirts/t-shirts on.
I recommend you see the parade and fireworks above all, enjoy the snow on Main Street, grab some cocoa and cookies and then maybe some character visits if you like to do that. My family chose rides over characters, and we saw the parade both viewings.
You will enjoy as much without kids as you would with kids. User Image

Mary has given you good advice. I would add the stage show on the castle forecourt stage...but that's only because Raggedy Ann & Andy are in it! tongue

I think this sounds like a TON of fun! We have done MNSSHP 3x in the past, and we really enjoyed each.

Thanks for the tips and such. I guess we will pick a day and buy those tickets come May 1st!

I'm buying tickets on May 1st for the 14th of December and can't wait. The night we went last I wore a 1/4 zip WDW fleece with a Santa Mickey in the place where a Polo player might be. My kids all wore Santa hat Mickey ears and my wife also wore a Christmas fleece.

TONS of fun. User Image

I have been to the Xmas party twice - it is a lot of fun. I would choose the Thursday night over the Friday if it were me, as I suspect lighter crowds that night. Heading into the weekend you may not be as lucky. You have to see the parade and fireworks, those are the best parts. The cookies and hot cocoa aren't too bad either. A lot of people DO dress festively, though not as much so as the Halloween party. For 4 adults, I would say absolutely, yes - it is still worth doing. Possibly moreso, as you will get to see and do more with your time.

PEACE OUT! grin

This is a fun party! Make sure to get your photo taken (this comes with the ticket, at least it used to).

I've been to this twice - its a blast! grin

This year I'm doing MNSSHP for the first time! Can't wait!

We've done this twice, each time on a Tuesday. I would go for the Thursday as it might not be quite as crowded as Friday.

In the past, we made this day a shopping/R&R day. We would go shopping or lounge by the pool, and maybe take a nap. Then we would head to the MK at around 4 pm. We usually booked a character meal around 5 pm - which was a great way to start the evening. IF you don't want characters or want to keep the price down on dinner, then The Plaza is a great option.

We always had a great time. grin
