    Booked a last minute Dec trip (5-9) and going to MK on the 6th. I was able to get a ADR for Crystal Palace @ 7:30pm. However, we do not plan to purchase MVMCP tickets. Will we be allowed to stay for our dinner if we get to the restaurant at 7pm?

    Hi Michelle!

    Wow...a Walt Disney World trip during the holidays AND dinner at The Crystal Palace! What could be better than that? I'm so excited for you.

    Guests who purchase tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party receive a wristband when they enter the Magic Kingdom that day. Only those with wristbands will be allowed by Cast Members to participate in the party's festivities. Guests such as you who have Advanced Dining Reservations will be allowed inside the Park for their dinner, of course, but will not be able to attend the party without a wristband. So, no worries! You will still be able to enjoy your wonderful dinner at The Crystal Palace that night.

    Thanks so much for dropping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Here's wishing you a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
