“Romantic” turns “festive” this holiday season.
Disney Parks Blog explained of the festivities at Tony’s:
At this new and special experience beginning at 9:30 p.m., you can pop in and out at your leisure and indulge in savory hors d’oeuvres including a selection of artisanal meats and cheeses as well as Tony’s famous meatballs, mini hand-tossed pizzas, Boursin-stuffed artichoke and more! And if you’re wanting to satisfy that sweet tooth, then you can snack on pumpkin tartlets, Yule Logs, cannoli, Christmas cookies, and red velvet cupcakes.
To go along with this festive array of dishes, raise a glass to the spirit of the season with a selection of Boursin beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages. While you eat, enjoy a holiday atmosphere and views of Town Square and Main Street, U.S.A.
The party doesn’t stop there! At 11:00 p.m., you’ll have access to a special reserved viewing area for the truly enchanting Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmastime Parade as it makes its way down Main Street, U.S.A. The festive procession includes dancing gingerbread men, marching toy soldiers and beloved Disney characters in their holiday finery. And the party continues until 12:30 a.m., ever longer than Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party!
I’m on record as advocating the “pay to play” on many of these extra-admission events. And even here, I see a night at Tony’s during the holiday party in a once in a childhood kind of way. But it is an extra expense.

Tony’s Most Merriest Town Square Party is available for $99 per person (plus tax) every Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party event night at Magic Kingdom Park. Admission to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is required to attend. Plus, we have great news for our Annual Passholders and DVC Members – you will be able to enjoy a 1-day exclusive early booking window on October 29 by calling 407-827-7348.
That understood, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (or the “Not So Scary…”) are amazing events on their own.
IMHO, an evening like the one above would “plus” the parties in a way that guests will remember for a long time. Given the means, I would certainly take advantage of the opportunity.
But what do you think?
