Shortly before Disney World’s phased reopenings began on July 11th, Disney announced that they would be cancelling Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year.
As for their winter seasonal offerings, Disney World hadn’t quite reached a decision — until today. Disney has just officially announced Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party will not take place in 2020.
When Disney World canceled its Halloween festivities, they stated that they would continue to closely monitor the ever-changing environment to determine whether or not special events, parties, and festivals could take place as scheduled when the time came. And now, Disney has officially decided to cancel 2020 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a special, ticketed holiday event that typically takes place on select evenings at Magic Kingdom starting in November and running through December.
The official statement Disney released today states that “holiday experiences that draw big crowds will be on hiatus this year…such as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Candlelight Processional at EPCOT.”
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party typically includes special character meet and greets, Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration Show, Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks, and the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. Since Disney World has put a hold on character meet and greets, nighttime spectaculars, and parades for the initial phase of their reopening, it’s not very surprising the celebration has been canceled this year, but we’ll have plenty of time to look forward to its return in 2021!
