Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade to Perform Twice a Day During Christmas Week

The holidays have been in full swing at Walt Disney World Resort since Halloween passed. It seems as if the entire Park transformed as the clock struck midnight on November 1.

Jolly garlands, festive music, and special holiday treats line the streets of Magic Kingdom. But the most magical part of the holidays at Walt Disney World is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
