The Magic Kingdom Entertainment You Can Only See for Free During Christmas

Guests to the Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort can now view these seasonal entertainment offerings for FREE for a limited time during the week of Christmas Day.

It’s always a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World! There’s so much to do, from seasonal overlays like the Jingle Cruise, to meeting Santa Claus, to the Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs, and of course, all the entertainment performances at the Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Typically, Guests can only witness the holiday-themed fare with paid admission for the special nighttime event, which sold out extremely quickly when tickets went on sale last month. However, if you weren’t able to grab a reservation and still want to get in on all the Yuletide cheer, Christmas week is your chance!

During the final countdown to the holiday, Magic Kingdom Guests can enjoy all the holiday entertainment offerings free (with general admission) during regular theme Park hours as the Christmas celebration kicks off! Specifically, four very merry holiday performances will come to Magic Kingdom Park each day leading up to Christmas and continue through to New Year’s Eve.
