    Hi again, thanks for your help. I have another question. On a day we are in the park and Mickey's Christmas party is going that night, we have to leave around 7. How late can I make a dinner reservation in the park? Can I make it at 7 and stay to eat?

    Hi, Jessica!

    What a wonderful time of year to be visiting Walt Disney World! All of the parks will be dressed up in their holiday finery, but you'll notice an extra bit of sparkle at Magic Kingdom during the Christmas season.

    Typically, Guests may make Advanced Dining Reservations at any Walt Disney World restaurant that is within a park up until park close. In other words, if you are seated prior to the park's closing, you may enjoy your meal as you normally would do so, no hurry!

    When I chaperone our school trip to WDW, I often book a dinner at The Hollywood Brown Derby just before Disney's Hollywood Studios closes. The result is a leisurely dinner inside a restaurant that is not nearly as crowded as it would have been earlier in the evening.

    Have a wonderful trip! Be sure to send more questions as you think of them; we love to help!
