For those of you who aren't familiar, these are special ticketed events at Magic Kingdom featuring unique stage shows, snacks, theming, and character meets.

If you've never gone to one of these events, you should strongly consider it this year. These are a chance to see Magic Kingdom like you've never seen it before. The snacks are delicious, the shows are fun, and the parks aren't super crowded. Plus, while your tickets will start at 7PM, you can actually arrive at 4PM and enjoy an extra 3 hours of fun! Last year, we used Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party as an excuse to fly in a day early for our Disney Cruise, and it was awesome!

These two parties made our list of 17 things to know about Walt Disney World in 2017! Check out the rest of the list here!
