Refunds Explained: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one of our favorite events at any Disney park, and having to miss it would be an absolute bummer - the least you can hope for in these situations is a refund! 

If something came up and you're hoping for a refund on your Very Merry Christmas Party you may have some options depending on your individual situation.

This refund guide will detail the most common reasons to request a refund on Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tickets and what options you might have.

We'll Discuss Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Refund Eligibility For The Following Circumstances:

  • Purchased Ticket For The Wrong Day
  • Inclement Weather Refunds
  • Sickness and Other Medical Reasons
  • Multiple Attraction Closures
  • Fireworks or Parade Cancellations
  • Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Event Cancellation
  • Other Reasons

 

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Parade

Purchased Ticket For The Wrong Day

If you accidentally purchased your Very Merry Christmas Party tickets for the wrong event date then you won't be eligible for a refund. 

However, you may be eligible to transfer your ticket over for another event date if your desired date hasn't sold out yet.

Mickey's Very Merry is an extremely popular event, so tickets tend to sell out quite fast, but if tickets are still available you might be able to switch dates.

Disney evaluates these transfers on a case-by-case basis, so there is absolutely no guarantee that they'll approve this request. 

The most you can do is try and hope for the best! 

Keep in mind that you will be responsible for any prices differences and don't expect to get a refund if your original event date was more expensive than the price for your new Very Merry Christmas Party date.

Inclement Weather Refunds

Weather in Florida during November and December tends to be quite calm, but an occasional thunderstorm does roll in from time to time. 

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party occurs rain or shine, so no refunds will be given even if there are prolonged periods of inclement weather. 

The only time you can expect a refund for weather related conditions if Disney has to cancel the entire event because the weather is so bad (e.g. a hurricane).

Sickness and Other Medical Reasons

Unfortunately if you come down with a cold or other sickness before Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party you will not be able to receive a refund. 

For the safety of others please do not attend the event if you're not feeling well!

Multiple Attraction Closures

If multiple rides or shows are closed, even for the entire Christmas Party, you will not be eligible for a refund on your tickets. 

Disney is explicit about this not only for their special events like Very Merry or Not So Scary, but in their day tickets as well.

As confusing as it may sound, Disney does not guarantee all of their rides will be operating when you visit their theme parks.

Fireworks or Parade Cancellations

If the Very Merry Christmas Party fireworks or parade is canceled then you will not be able to receive a refund. 

However, if BOTH the parade and fireworks are canceled then Disney may provide Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tickets for another event date in lieu of a full refund. 

These circumstances are very rare, but we have seen them happen in the past and Disney will typically work with you on some sort of way to make things better.

Again, this is on a case-by-case basis and refunds are still seldomly given, but you have a much better chance of receiving a ticket for another Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party event date.

Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Event Cancellation

If Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is canceled entirely for an unexpected reason then you can expect to receive a refund on your event tickets.

You may also be offered tickets for another Christmas Party event date as availability allows.

Other Reasons

Any other reasons not listed in this guide will likely be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

It's always good to keep in mind that flexibility helps as the more likely outcome of any refund request is an offer to change your Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party date, if availability allows.

Full refunds will always be harder to come by!
