Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party- tips for beginners

(photo from Disney Parks Blog)

I am a HUGE fan of "don't reinvent the wheel" so when I saw this post on the Disney Parks Blog...I didn't dare try to re-configure my are some GREAT tips!

In case you’re attending your first party this year, here are some tips on how you can make the merriest of the night!

It Requires a Separate Party Ticket
We get this question often, and yes, entry to the party requires a separate Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party ticket (even if you’re visiting the park earlier in the day, the party requires a separate ticket). Here’s a tip – you may receive a discount on select party nights when you purchase tickets in advance. Buying tickets ahead of time is suggested, as some nights do sell out. Click here to learn more.

Your Party Ticket Allows Entry as Early as 4 p.m.
Get the biggest bang for your buck by using your party ticket to enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4 p.m. The holiday festivities don’t start until 7 p.m., so you could use this time to get through a few more attractions.

Grab a Special Event Map
The easiest way to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the holiday fun is to pick up a special event map on your way into the park. Special entertainment times, character greeting locations and more are listed there.

Wear “Glow With the Show” Ears
This year’s party entertainment will be enhanced for the first time with “Glow With the Show” ears. They’ll be used along with the Celebrate the Magic castle projection show and Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season fireworks. Ear hats can be purchased at locations throughout Magic Kingdom Park, or you can bring hats you previously purchased at other Disney Parks to wear – they will work.

Head to the Jingle Cruise
For the first time in park history, Jungle Cruise in Adventureland is undergoing a holiday transformation. Head to the attraction to see the skippers’ homemade holiday decor and hear their new seasonal jokes!

Meet Characters
Pick up an event map to keep tabs on special Disney character greeting opportunities throughout the park. And be on the lookout for Santa Claus in Town Square!

Don’t Forget the Free Cocoa & Cookies
Be sure to check out your event map for snack stations throughout the park that offer complimentary hot cocoa and cookies. Healthy options are available upon request.

Black's all about to change

As much as it pains me to say it...I am not happy one bit about Black Friday this year.

A long standing tradition in my house.....
family Thanksgiving with all of the crazies, and as the gravy sits and forms a layer on the top, I lovingly engross myself in the newspaper of the day.

You know, the big, fat one, full of Black Friday ads.
The one that the mail carrier dreads delivering because of the new found bulk in her triceps early the next morning!
The ads full of bargains that no one really needs, but everyone MUST have because it is ONLY $3!!! 

You know the ads that are so not cool.
Full of MAJOR price slashing...only to find that each store only had 4 of those $88 trampolines to begin with!

Yes...that's the day I love so much!!!

For years, Susie and I (and a few other friends thru the years) have a plan of attack.

After all of the littles are safe at home, full of turkey, and in the bed...we change into our warmest Christmas socks and we tip-toe out of the house, around 2am (the last year or two, it has been earlier year by year) and we head for the stores, and we are always amazed at the line that has already formed.

I don't know why it shocks us, when people are in their pajamas outside of Best Buy and it looks like they have been camping for weeks.
Their hair isn't washed.
Their remnants of fast-food shenanigans are everywhere.
But, whatev.

So...this brings me to this year.
The year that stores (Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Toys R Us) have announced they will open at 6pm on THANKSGIVING DAY!

And so, I am sorry.
But I am breaking my own tradition, and I regret to force myself...but I will NOT be there when they open.

And quite honestly, I am shocked, in advance, at the number of people that will leave their families to go beat the doors down.

And, even more disappointed that all of these stores are making their employees leave THEIR families to go to work. 

So sad about this.
And that this is where we are today.
In 2013.

So, I guess, in conclusion, my family will not get "doorbuster" gifts this year, instead, they will probably get something that I found one day while "browsing" on a standard business/shopping day.
And probably something much more meaningful.

But, as for me and my house...we will NOT shop on Thanksgiving.
