It really was a great party and was just a lot of fun as it is every single year. Main Street USA is decorated already as is the majority of Magic Kingdom. It also snows on Main Street throughout the party so don’t forget to stop and enjoy that too.

First things first, the park map for this year looks great and gives a lot of detail once again. Click the images below for larger looks at them.

  1. So no meet and greet with Anna and Elsa, this year? Just confirming.

  2. Ron Duphily says:

    Did any of the characters come out before 7pm? Also, what were the lines like for Seven Dwarfs and Jack Skellington?

    • April Ulshafer says:

      We are currently in line for Jack Skellington and he won’t be out until 7. But people were lined up 2 hours early.

  3. At the end of the party, in Adventureland right outside the entrance to the Tiki Room, my family saw Peter Pan and took a picture with him. We were heading to Jack Sparrow and Peter had no line and was just wandering. This was at the Thursday party, and it was awesome.
