But more on that later. The next evening, we went to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom. And I must say, in all honesty, it was one of the most fun trips we've ever had. Just before the party starts, there is a castle lighting ceremony where Cinderella's Fairy Godmother waves her magic wand to cover castle in the icicle lights. While the castle's holiday decor is beautiful on it's own, the extra touch really makes it a celebration.

The best event of the night was undoubtedly the Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season Fireworks Spectacular. Now, I love fireworks in general (who doesn't?), and I try to catch Wishes at least once every time we visit. This show, however, blew every other firework display I ever seen out of the water. The Fourth of July should be very, very envious. The fireworks were orchestrated along with classic Christmas tunes, such as "I'll be home for Christmas" and "Trepak (Cossack Dance)" from the Nutcracker Suite, they even shot fireworks diagonally to form a Christmas tree shape during "O' Christmas Tree". At the beginning of the spectacular, Tinkerbell flies over the audience, and in the finale the fireworks are so bright the sky appears to switch back to daylight. This alone was worth the price of admission.
