    I am going to be attending MVMCP on Dec. 22 and I was lucky enough to get an ADR at CRT at 9:25 that night, but I am not sure if it is worth it, since it will take away from the party time. Opinions?

    Hi Suzy! This is tough as getting a reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table is hard to obtain.

    Personally, if you are going to purchase tickets for the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party I would not take a chunk of the time to eat especially at 9:25pm. You will likely miss both the early parade and also the special fireworks show. For most guests they come to enjoy the short lines at the attractions and the special entertainment that evening. If you can find a dining reservation starting at 4:15 until 7pm that would be the best option. The party itself does not start until 7pm but you are allowed into the park using your special event ticket as early as 4pm.

    I am afraid you will miss too much by taking this time to eat at a place where meals can take quite a while. I would try daily for a different time for a dining reservation even if it isn't Cinderella's Royal Table. Or enjoy the party and grab some quick service bites between the action.
