    Coming to Magic Kingdom Friday Nov 17, 2023. We will not be staying for the Christmas Party. Aware that day pass guests are to leave by 6pm. Character Dining at Crystal Palace let me make a 6:10pm Reservation. Is this okay to leave after our meal?

    Joanna-Mae! Welcome back to planDisney. I am so excited to be able to help you again. I've got great news for you about your Disney Dining Reservation at The Crystal Palace that begins after Magic Kingdom Park closes to Day Guests and before Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

    Guests who have reservations BEFORE Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party actually begins which is at 7:00 PM will be allowed to dine until that time. In fact, you may have a dining reservation up to the time the party actually begins. When you finish your meal Cast Members will guide you toward the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park for you to exit. So keep that 6:10 PM dining reservation and be sure to show up at least 10 minutes early.

    planDisney Pro Tip: I know you are not staying for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party but if you want to watch Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks you can outside of the theme park from the beaches of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and the Marnia at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. They are magnificent from both locations.

    Joanna-Mae, keep those questions coming to us. We are here to help share our personal experiences. If you have any follow-up questions please feel free to write me back directly.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
