Can you feel a chill in the air? Well, it’s Florida and the temperature may be in the 70’s, but it’s hard not to be in a jolly holiday mood!

Last night was the second night of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party this year (the first one was rained out, but at least we got to see the Rainy Day Christmastime Cavalcade!) Once you see Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade making its way down Main Street, U.S.A, it’ll definitely put a smile on your face.

Mickey and Minnie were decked out in their festive attire, riding along with a beautifully decorated tree, while their pals skipped in front and behind them, waving to the crowd.

For the grand finale, the crowd cheered as white-gloved, rosy-cheeked St. Nick waved to the crowd from his sleigh packed with gifts!

You can check out this year’s first Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade in the video below!

  1. We were there for the first night, got drenched, lots of characters in hiding, it seemed. Was a good night to hit popular rides at least. Shame the holiday events were limited.

  2. Why does the lighting look bad? The parade lights don’t reach the parade route? The buildings around are lit, but the characters look like they are dancing in the dark.

    1. I’ve alway felt these floats should be better lit for the Christmas Party events. They were initially designed for the daytime parade schedule that starts Dec 22nd, but for some reason, Disney hasn’t added much, if anything, to the floats to make them really “pop” at night.
