    Hello! We are attending an upcoming Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and plan to arrive at 4pm, using the party ticket. Can I purchases an individual lightning lane for Seven Dwarfs Mine on the Genie app for a return time after 4pm that day?

    Hey Howdy Hey Wes and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you for stopping by with your question on Individual Lightning Lane Entry purchases on the day of your special event! I would be happy to shed a little more light on this topic so you can prepare for an extra Magical vacation!

    With Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom, you have it right Wes, you will be able to get into the parks starting at 4:00 PM on the night of your event. When it comes to Individual Lightning Lane Entry purchases, you should have the ability to purchase them for the time you will be allowed into the parks until the park officially closes to the general public. 

    For some reason, if you are unable to experience Seven Dwarfs Mine Train before the party starts, you will still have the opportunity to do so during the party times. This attraction should still be available, pending weather and general operations, during the party and with reduced crowd levels, you should be able to experience it with a shorter wait. If you wanted to experience this attraction with even lower wait times, plan your ride for times during the shows or parades as most people will be waiting to experience them rather than attractions.

    If you did want to see Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas Parade and still have a shot at lower wait times for attractions, I would highly recommend getting a spot away from Main Street U.S.A. Look for a spot in Liberty Square around the Liberty Bell as the parade usually starts in Frontierland and makes its way towards Main Street U.S.A. as this is where the larger crowds will gather as well as in the front of Cinderella Castle. After the parade goes by, the walkway towards the Haunted Mansion or Fantasyland will take you behind the Castle so you can have a straight shot to get queued up for Seven Dwarfs while most people are still experiencing the parade. 

    Hopefully, these options will work out for you to have the best experience for your Magical celebration during the Christmas party. If you have any further questions, please feel free to stop back and let us know, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
