Central Floridians and visitors alike don’t have to venture far to walk in a winter wonderland. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is sprinkled with live entertainment, spectacular fireworks and festive holiday light parades, but it’s the cozy details that really put you in the holiday spirit. Falling snowflakes tickle your nose as you enjoy complimentary hot chocolate and sugar cookies while strolling down Main Street as classic Christmas songs fill the air.
