    I am a bit confused as to how the Very Merry Christmas party works. Is MK closed that day and only opens at 4, close before 4, or how do they know who has tickets and who doesn't if we purchase party tickets for the same day we want to be in the park?

    Hi Melissa,

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  Visiting during the holiday season is my all time favorite thing to do!  Seeing Magic Kingdom transformed into a winter wonderland and attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party puts me immediately into the Christmas spirit.

    Although the actual theme park hours for Magic Kingdom haven't been released yet, typically on a party night Magic Kingdom closes at 7:00 pm to its day Guests.  Party-goers who have purchased Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tickets may be admitted as early as 4:00 pm with their tickets and will be given party wristbands to identify them as party-goers.  Officially the party begins at 7:00 pm and only Guests with party wristbands may remain in the park.

    If you are visiting Magic Kingdom on the same day as you are attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, then you will need to obtain wristbands sometime after 4:00 pm but by 7:00 pm (be sure to bring your party tickets!)  Wristbands are distributed at the gate and also in a few locations inside of the park so you can ask a Cast Member where the closest location for wristbands is located.

    Thank you for submitting your question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Please let us know if you have any further vacation planning questions.  We are always here to help!
