Every year for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, we frogs are always making a list and checking it twice when it comes to all of the amazing holiday food and beverages available during the party! From complimentary cookies to party-exclusive specialty treats, here's what you need to know about everything food-related during the separately ticketed event at Magic Kingdom Park.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party — Peppermint Snowman

Complimentary Holiday Treat Stations

One of our favorite perks of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is the complimentary holiday cookies and drinks. Keep an eye out for gigantic, inflatable peppermint sticks to signify a treat location. There is often a variety of cookies (snickerdoodle, chocolate chip, sugar and gingerbread) and beverages (hot chocolate, apple cider, eggnog) throughout the park.

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Food — Hot Cocoa & Snickerdoodle Cookie

Here are the complimentary treat locations for 2023:

  • Tortuga Tavern (Adventureland) — Gingerbread cookie and Eggnog
  • Columbia Harbour House (Liberty Square) — Chocolate chip cookie and Hot Cocoa
  • Pinocchio Village Haus (Fantasyland) — Red Velvet cookie and Hot Cocoa
  • Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe (Tomorrowland) — Snickerdoodle cookie and Hot Cocoa 
  • The Lunching Pad (Tomorrowland) — Sugar cookie and Apple Cider 

All of the cookies are individually wrapped. This is perfect for those concerned about allergies ... or if you just want to stock up on your treat stash for the winter. Speaking of allergies, there are also allergen-friendly options. There should be Werther's Original sugar-free candies and Homefree cookies (gluten/allergy-free option) at each of the treat locations.

Specialty Items Available Only During Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

In addition to these complimentary (and did we mention, unlimited?) sweets and treats, there is also special seasonal food available for purchase. Some are only available during the party, while others (listed below) are also available during regular park hours.

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Dining

Only select restaurants are usually open during party time throughout the park, so plan ahead. We recommend snagging a big dinner before the party and then snacking throughout the night so as to not spend precious party time grubbing, but there are also event-exclusive dining options.

Quick-Service Restaurants Typically Open During Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

  • Main Street Bakery
  • Casey's Corner
  • Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
  • Aloha Isle (until 9 p.m.)
  • Sunshine Tree Terrace
  • Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • The Friar's Nook
  • Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café
  • Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies
  • Cool Ship

Table-Service Restaurants Open During Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella's Royal Table are both open during the party. Dining reservations are available from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and are highly recommended. If dining at either of these restaurants is on your party wish list, we'd suggest 6 p.m. so you don't lose as much party time. You must have a party ticket in order to dine during the event.

Dessert Parties

There are two special dessert parties only available during the party — Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace and Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing.

A dessert party is an extra-cost activity, so we'd only recommend one if you want to splurge and have attended the party previously, as it can take up party time, which is already limited!
