Blogger Kristin Ford shares the following tips for navigating Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party:

-- Guests can collect their special Christmas Party Sorcerer of the Magic Kingdom cards beginning at 4 p.m. if they have their party wristbands. Get this done early so you don't forget and then save it for another day at the Magic Kingdom when you're not trying to get to all the party entertainment.

-- Club Tinsel, the dance party inside Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, typically does not get very crowded, so it's the perfect place to take a break from crowds or from waiting for other entertainment. You could even pick up hot chocolate and peppermint bark cookies at the nearby Lunching Pad and sit at one of the many tables in the restaurant.

-- The Magic Kingdom continues to offer allergy-friendly and healthy snack alternatives to those who prefer to skip the cookies. In the past, individual packets of apple slices and apple juice were available at each station upon request.

-- If you want to see new Zootopia characters Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps, get in line before the party officially starts at 7 p.m. Reports from the first week of the parties say the pair began greeting guests early, as long as you have your party wristband. At the very least, you'll save party time by getting what are sure to be long lines out of the way before most holiday entertainment starts.

. To help you plan, we thought we'd share some of our best tips for MVMCP. Do you have a tip for the party nights? Please send it along!

-- Take advantage of the 4 p.m. entry into the Magic Kingdom. Your Christmas Party ticket will get you into the park, no need to use a day on your general admission tickets.

-- If you are going to attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and wish to purchase a souvenir tee or sweatshirt, make sure to purchase one before you leave the park the night you attend. This merchandise is only available during the party.

-- Because you're paying extra for this special event, you probably want to get the most for your money. For many of us, that means enjoying all the holiday activities and entertainment that can only be done at the party before spending time on the usual attractions that are open every day.

-- Ride the Jingle Cruise, a holiday-themed version of Adventureland's Jungle Cruise, which runs during the holiday season.

-- Eat dinner, but save room for the complimentary cookies and hot cocoa served during the party (locations indicated on the party guide map).

-- Stop by the Fire House in Town Square and pick up your special Christmas edition Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card. This year's card feature's Elsa from the movie "Frozen." You don't have to play the game during the party, but you can only collect this special themed card at the party. You must have your admission ticket (card or MagicBand) and a party wristband to claim your Sorcerers card. - AllEars® Tips

If you're going to Walt Disney World anytime between September and December, consider attending one of the special parties in the Magic Kingdom -- Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (and go during the week so it's less crowded). You can save money by not buying a park ticket the day of the party. Sleep late, enjoy the pool at your resort and/or go to Disney Springs. If you're visiting in November or December, check out the fabulous Christmas decorations in any of the deluxe resorts. Get to Magic Kingdom at 4 p.m. and you will get to enjoy the park until closing time at midnight. Both parties are really great! - Kim

Christmas - If you are going to be in the Magic Kingdom during the day of a Very Merry Christmas Party, but aren't staying for the Party, make sure you do any Main Street shopping before the time the party starts. We were at the Magic Kingdom on the first night of the party this year (November 9). We tried to get into the Emporium at 7:05 p.m. and they wouldn't let us in without a bracelet. It was very disappointing since it was our last night. Luckily we had done some shopping earlier, but my friends were very disappointed. - Rick G.
