This week, we kicked off the holiday season with a special #DisneyParksLIVE stream of the first showing of “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks” at Walt Disney World Resort. If you missed it, you can see a replay of the show right now.
In the new show, Minnie invites you to take in a sparkling, yuletide fireworks display as the sky above Cinderella Castle brightens to the tunes of “Deck the Halls” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
The fireworks show is exclusive to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which guests can attend on select nights November 8 through December 22, 2019. Visit our original DisneyParksLIVE: Watch ‘Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks’ story for more details.
