This is my family’s favorite parade when visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays! Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is exclusive to Magic Kingdom. You must purchase a separate event ticket to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party to view this parade.

Parade Times

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade runs twice during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The first is at 8:30pm and the second is at 11:00pm.

Parade Route

Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade begins in Frontierland. It ends near the entrance of the park in Town Square close to the Fire Station.

Best Viewing Location

If you want the easier/less crowded viewing location, then Frontierland is the place for you! However, I always suggest Main Street U.S.A. for the best viewing location of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. Viewing the parade from Main Street U.S.A. will give you an excellent view of Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season Fireworks which is after the parade. If you plan to catch the second parade, you can view the fireworks from Main Street U.S.A. and then grab a spot on the curb for the parade.

Tips

  • If you want a front row seat to Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, you will have to sit for quite a while before parade time to save that great spot!
  • It’s easiest to get a good spot to watch Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas Parade if you choose the Frontierland area versus the Castle hub or Main Street U.S.A.
  • Do you want an even more magical experience? Reserve the Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace and have reserved viewing of the parade and fireworks. What is not to love about reserved viewing and enjoying sweet treats?
  • Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade runs twice during each Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The second parade is less crowded.
  • Pick up a special event Times Guide when entering Magic Kingdom. The Times Guide will list the times for the parade and all other happenings going on during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
  • About a week before Christmas, you will have the opportunity to view this parade without attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. At this point, the parade is shown during the day time at Magic Kingdom.
