    Can you buy a Mickey's Christmas Party ticket if you buy a half day ticket?

    Hi there, Shannon!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am thrilled that you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  ANY visit to Walt Disney World Resort is special and memorable, but there is something extra magical about visiting during the holidays!  I love seeing all the holiday decorations throughout the theme parks as it really gets me in the holiday spirit!

    If you are considering going to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party during your visit then I highly recommend purchasing your ticket sooner than later as it has been known to sell out!  In fact, a couple years ago my family waited too long to get our tickets to another special event at Walt Disney World Resort and missed out on that opportunity….and to this day I am still not sure whether I was more disappointed than my boys.  So, take it from me and plan ahead!  Entrance to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party requires its own special-event ticket, so you technically do not need an admission ticket to Magic Kingdom Park to attend the party.  Your special-event ticket gives you access to the theme park as early as 4:00PM, which is a full three hours prior to the event starting!  This gives you extra time to enjoy the theme park before the Christmastime magic begins!

    Hopefully this helps answer your question and I hope you do decide to go to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party…you definitely won’t regret it!  I mean, when else are you guaranteed to see snow on Main Street, U.S.A.?!?!  

    Wishing you a magical and JOY-filled vacation, Shannon!  Please come back with any other questions you may have!
