Exactly 7 weeks from today, my daughter Ashley, my friend Suzanne, and I will be boarding a plane bound for Walt Disney World? Why? (Well, truthfully, who needs a why?!) We’re going to celebrate Ashley’s 21st birthday!
This will be Ashley’s 10th visit, my 12th visit, and Suzanne’s 2nd visit (she hasn’t been since she was a kid!) We’re excited to introduce her to the Walt Disney World that we know, love, and call “home.” Stop back each Wednesday during the countdown. We’re sharing 14 things we’re looking forward to!
Last December, our family visited Walt Disney World for our first-ever Christmas trip. Because we thought it would be a one-time deal, we splurged and did things we might not normally do – like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
As we’ve been planning this trip for Ashley’s 21st birthday, we didn’t give much thought to the fact that it would take place AFTER Halloween; so, therefore DURING some of the Christmas/holiday events taking place throughout the Walt Disney World resort.
When talking to our travel buddies (one of which who has since backed out), we decided it might be fun to do the party again, since it falls on the day we were planning for the Magic Kingdom anyway, and will give us more time in the parks to enjoy all there is to offer.
Last year, we found ourselves standing in line to meet some of the more rare characters. So, this year, I’d like to think we’ll have more time to see some of the special shows, etc. Also, I’d like to find a better location to stand and watch the parade (last year, we stood right where it was starting in Frontierland, and it really wasn’t that exciting).
We’re also excited because a dear friend of ours, who just happens to be a Disney local, will be joining us for our Magic Kingdom day, and enjoying the MVMCP with us! So, it should be a fabulous day all around! Can’t wait!
What is your favorite thing about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party?
