It’s that time of year. That magical time when it is Halloween and the next day the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World is decked out for Christmas. The first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is Nov. 7th, 2014 and is already sold out.
Tonight was the first night of the new Cinderella Castle lighting ceremony, “A Frozen Holiday Wish.” Check your times guide when you enter the park to get the nightly time for this event. This year it is a Frozen theme. Anna and Elsa and Kristoff made an appearance along with Olaf. Anna and Kristoff urge Elsa to turn the Castle into an ice castle. She finally decides to do it. They get the crowd chanting as the magic happens. Personally I think they should have included Cinderella since it is her castle after all.
Just a word of warning when the show starts. All of a sudden there are lots of kids on their parents shoulders. This show seems worse than other fireworks shows because of the popularity of the Frozen movie. You think you have staked out the perfect spot when you see your view blocked. I understand that the kids want to see the show but I would ask that the parents stand to the back of the crowd so they don’t block the view.
Of course, there were plenty of folks using their tablets to take pictures and video. Please try using a digital camera to capture those special moments in the parks.
I can’t wait to experience Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and see the Castle lighting ceremony again! If you saw the show what did you think of this new version? Tell us in the comments below. See you in the parks!
