    We will be going to Christmas party on Dec 4th, we have only been able to get a dinner reservation for 3 pm at The Plaza Restaurant and will not have park passes for that day, will we be able to enter park early enough to go to restaurant?

    Hi Diane,

    Unfortunately I don't think your plan is going to work. Typically, guests with only holiday party tickets have been let into the Magic Kingdom as early as 4:00pm. (The party officially starts at 7:00.) I have never heard of guests with just party tickets being allowed entry prior to 4:00. This means that you won't be able to make it inside for a 3:00 reservation.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd keep checking back to see if you can get a later table service reservation slot. If you can't, then try one of the wonderful counter service venues in the Magic Kingdom. My personal favorite is Columbia Harbor House, but they're all pretty great.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We're happy to help.
