The Problem With Going To Magic Kingdom The Day AFTER Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party can be a great experience for those hoping to ring in the holiday season and score some lower crowds and wait times.

The holidays have arrived!

However, for those who don’t have a party ticket, it can cause some annoyances. For example, you’ll have to leave Magic Kingdom by 6PM. Another inconvenience we’ve come across is the crowds the NEXT DAY. Let’s talk about it!

It seems like it isn’t a coincidence that the days after Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, wait times in Magic Kingdom seem to SOAR compared to the other parks.

Holidays at Magic Kingdom

Take a look at the wait times below from Monday, December 12th. Magic Kingdom’s wait times all remain steadily HIGH, while the other parks had low or moderate waits nearly all day.

Is it a coincidence that these wait times happen the day after a Christmas Party? Based on the recurring situation, we think not!

Another option is to visit Magic Kingdom before the party, where there are typically low waits. It stinks to have to leave early, but you’ll typically be able to knock out more in that time frame than usual.

We’ll continue to keep you updated with more Disney news, so make sure to follow along so that you never miss a thing.

One Reply to “The Problem With Going To Magic Kingdom The Day AFTER Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party”

  1. During the party seasons (Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween & Very Merry Christmas parties) beginning in August, wait times in MK on non-party days often are double or even triple the wait times on party days! If you want shorter lines from August through December at MK, go on party days! Yes, you are going to miss out on evening fireworks, but you’ll be so tired from being able to walk onto nearly every ride you won’t care!
