We can’t think of a better way to ring in the holiday season than with a trip to the “Most Magical Place on Earth.” A visit to bright and sunny Orlando swiftly turns into a winter dreamland once the doors open for Walt Disney World’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Gather with your loved ones and watch in wonder as Magic Kingdom transforms itself into a wintry wonderland with exciting character greetings, awe-inspiring shows, and playful parades. We’ve collected some of the best tips for visiting this festive scene and have them here for your enjoyment.

It’s no surprise that everyone wants to have a great spot for the Holiday Wishes fireworks show, but in this case, the best firework views are actually farther away. If you’re too close to the Castle, you won’t get the grand effect of this instrumental light show. So grab your family and secure a distant spot for the best views of cheery wonderment.
