    I've been going to Very Merry for years, it's a great time! I know some people think you are spending the extra money for the hot chocolate and cookies but it really is a great experience! I will be there this year but we are going the first week of December! Hope you have a great time!

    I've been to WDW during the holidays but never to the Xmas Party. It seems like it gets really crowded and sold out some nights. Is it worth the extra money to go to the party? We were thinking of maybe Dec. 13 or 14 or this year to go. Anyone else going to the party those nights?

    I'm going to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party for the first time this year! We're planning on going November 15th, which is a little early for Christmas but it's when were in Disney. I'm really excited to see it snow on Main Street and see the new castle lights!

    I've been to MVMCP twice and will be going again this year. DD was getting the tickets, so I don't know if we are still planning to go on the 15th. We enjoy it. I think it's less crowded than a regular day, but I might be remembering it less accurately than I think.

    We went on the behind the scenes safari about 4 years ago. I thought is was really interesting. You can't be assured of petting a rhino, but I think they do try to put that into the tour if possible. We were able to meet with the elephant trainers and ask them all kinds of questions. We saw the area that is used to prepare food for all the animals in AK. My kitchen should be so clean. Going behind the areas does dissolve a bit of the magic only because it's not a "stage" are of WDW. It's still a very well-kept, clean area. We also received souvenir pins for our morning. It starts early and goes right through till lunch. Lots of walking. I highly recommend it for teens and adults.

    A sell out is not really a bad thing at Very Merry, much like some of the other events that Disney does, they sell the park out in a way that keeps the crowds lower than you would encounter in a normal day in the parks, especially at that time of the year. For the most part, the lines really are not bad and the experience is great!

    I've done both the MVMCP and the AK Backstage Tour.

    MVMCP is great. We go every year that we are done there. They used to have pictures taken, but I think they have stopped that. It's a great time to ride. We practically walked in, rode, walked out, walked back in, and rode again. The parade is good as well.

    The AK Backstage tour was great. We had a full tour group. There is a lot of walking and if you want to hear the guide spiel you need to stay up close to him/her. We did get to pet the rhino, but I don't know if that is always the norm. We also went in the giraffe enclosure. We didn't get to feed her, but the cast member did while we were in there. It was a really fun experience.

    I hope you have fun when you go down.

    I want to be a cast member when I'm done being an adult.
