    We are coming to Disney World for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas on November 12, 2012. We are only able to get dinner reservations for 6:30pm but we know the Christmas events start at 7pm. Will we miss anything if we're still eating at 7pm?


    This is a great question. Unfortunately, my answer is "it depends". The party runs from 7 pm to midnight. If you can stay until midnight then I think you are fine. However, if you plan on leaving earlier than that then I really suggest either earlier. Generally, I recommend that guests finish eating before the party starts to maximize what you can do and see at the party and to get the most value. I will point out that you will probably miss the castle lightning ceremony which takes place before the party starts; that is not a big deal if you are going to be in the Magic Kingdom another day. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions!
