    On Christmas Party nights (with party tickets) am I allowed to make a dining reservation for 7pm?

    Greetings, Patricia, and a warm welcome back to planDisney, we thank you for your loyalty!

    Disney Very Merriest After Hours is a delightful specially-ticketed, Christmas-themed event at Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park on select nights.

    Patricia, dining is one of my most favorite activities during my visits, and I am happy you are considering securing your dining reservation at the start time to this specially-ticketed event, so you'll be in time for Disney Very Merriest After Hours. You are welcome to make any available, select dining reservations 60-days in advance of your arrival via your My Disney Experience account, or your My Disney Experience app, and please keep in mind that entry to Magic Kingdom Park for this event begins at 7:00 PM ET. 

    May I suggest you rest up in preparation for this evening event, and even consider making your advanced dining reservation a little earlier outside of the theme park (to not use up a separate theme park admission), only because of the incredible complimentary treats during the event, and the specialty treats for purchase during the event? To be honest, Patricia, I usually skip table-service meals later in the day for such events, and instead, I enjoy a bountiful breakfast, such as one at 'Ohana, at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, for example!
    Disney Tidbits - have a Disney PhotoPass photographer snap memorable photos on Main Street, U.S.A. on your way out at the end of the event for fewer people in your background, and stop by shopDisney for any holiday gear to prepare for your visit. Also, look out for the special, large Peppermint Stick Markers where some delicious complimentary snacks will be offered. In the past, Guests enjoyed ice cream, popcorn, and select bottled beverages, Snickerdoodle cookies, and hot cocoa (subject to change).

    Patricia, it was my pleasure assisting you, and I look forward to being of any further assistance with your Disney vacation planning again soon!

    Best Disney Wishes ~ Jacqueline
