When it comes to special events at Disney World, nothing is quite like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. One of the things you get to experience is Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. This Disney Christmas parade is spectacular from start to end and will even give you the chance to see the big guy himself (and I don’t mean Mickey).
Disney Christmas Parade at Magic Kingdom
While all Disney parades are pretty impressive, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is amazing.
It’s the only parade where you will get to see marching toy soldiers and dancing gingerbread men.
You will want a good seat for the parade so you can see all the character floats that get a special holiday upgrade!
Many of your favorite Disney characters make an appearance.
Also, you will get to see most of the Disney Princesses.
And make sure that you don’t leave the parade early, because it ends with a special appearance of Santa Claus!
Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade Route
The parade starts in Frontierland and moves toward Cinderella Castle before going down Main Street USA.
This means that if you want to be the first to see the parade (and thus, be the first released after it comes through), the best place to be is in Frontierland or Liberty Square.
Disney Christmas Parade Light-Up Accessories
You will find plenty of carts filled with Disney Christmas gear. You can choose from Spinning Disney character light-up wands, Glowing Christmas Bell necklaces and Light Up Mickey Ears.
The Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is one of the most popular events at Walt Disney World during the holiday season and certainly something you should make time to see.
