There are also some special events during the parks. At the Magic Kingdom, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is offered on select evenings, for an additional fee. The party features a special version of Wishes (the fireworks show), a Christmas parade, hot chocolate and cookies, and snow even falls on Main Street.

This amazing display is included with admission to Walt Disney World.

There's many more holiday happenings at the Walt Disney World resort. What's your favorite?
