On December 19th, the Magic Kingdom kicked off it's peak holiday season by showing the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, as well as other shows (and Holiday Wishes) to day guests. Through November and until December 18th, these entertainment offerings were only part of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.
We went three times to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party this year, but I really enjoy getting to see the entertainment as part of my Annual Pass as well!
Our first book, Christmas at Walt Disney World, is on Amazon!
The Main Street Philharmagic preceded the parade:
We usually go to Christmas Tree Point (looking towards Cinderella Castle) to see the Christmas parade. This is a great location, except with a little too much shadow during the day.

Duffy the Disney Bear made his parade debut on Mickey and Minnie's float this year!
