    Hi, I booked the Crystal Palace for 5pm dinner on a night there is a MNSSHP, but we don't have tickets to the party, will that be an issue for dinner?

    Hi Andrea!

    So, you have plans to dine with Pooh and his friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood in a few months? How wonderful! I have always enjoyed dining with family at The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom Park. I so enjoy the interaction Guests can have with the characters there. (I'm a big Piglet fan.) Don't forget your camera and your autograph book for the occasion, and bring your appetite. They have a lovely buffet.

    Andrea, I have good news for you. On nights when Magic Kingdom Park hosts Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, the park is open to day Guests until 6 pm. Therefore, you will have no trouble accessing your 5 p.m. dining reservation before the party begins. Even if your meal extends beyond 6 p.m., don't worry. Enjoy dinner at your leisure and then exit Magic Kingdom Park when you have concluded your meal. 

    If you're not in a hurry to return to your hotel after dinner, may I recommend a monorail ride to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa? You simply have to see the enormous Christmas tree and life-size gingerbread house in the lobby there. It's a delightful way to end a magical day. 

    Do let us know if you need any additional information as your plans come together for your holiday trip. My friends and I here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel would be happy to help.

    Sending best wishes and pixie dust,
