    If we buy the Very Merry Christmas Party ticket and come to the park at 2pm do we need a ticket in as well or is the party ticket covered?

    Hi Christine,

    Any time of year is a magical time of year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, but there’s something extra special about visiting during the holidays. I’m thrilled to hear that you’ll be able to experience Disney Very Merriest After Hours this year! With shorter waits for beloved attractions, complimentary seasonal snacks, plus special experiences like Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks and my very favorite parade, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, you’re going to head back home with a heart FULL of magical memories and Christmas joy!

    While the event itself runs from 9:00 PM – 1:00 AM, you’ll be able to enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7:00 PM with your Disney Very Merriest After Hours ticket. When my family enjoys an event like this, we like to sleep in, enjoy a late table-service breakfast, swim at our Disney Resort hotel, and take a nap in the afternoon before heading over to the park for the late-night fun. If you’d like to be able to enter Magic Kingdom Park even earlier, though, you’ll need to purchase a standard ticket for the day or use one of your days if you have a multi-day ticket. You’ll also need to make sure you have a Disney Park Pass reservation. If you’re just visiting with your Disney Very Merriest After Hours ticket, you won’t need to worry about also having a reservation.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Christine. However you choose to spend your day, I hope it’s truly magical!
