    Hi! We are about 30 days out from our Disney vacation and just started booking FastPasses. Should we avoid going to Magic Kingdom on a day when we will get kicked out of the park at 6:00 due to Mickey's Christmas Party?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley. I'm so glad you sent me this great question!

     The holiday season is an extra magical time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. There's a flurry of fun to be had! With exclusive entertainment, unique Character experiences, and special yuletide treats, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one of my favorite holiday offerings. Magic Kingdom Park does close at 6:00 PM for regular daytime Guests on days that this special event is scheduled, so to make the most of your theme park admission, I recommend visiting on a day that the party isn't scheduled. In doing this, you'll get to enjoy a few more hours in the park! An evening at Magic Kingdom Park is my family's very favorite part of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We always get dinner from Casey's Corner, find a quiet spot to picnic, and then watch the unique nighttime magic come to life on Main Street, U.S.A. It's a childhood tradition that I treasure! You'll want to be sure to see Happily Ever After during your visit to Magic Kingdom Park. It's the most magical way to end the day.

     Do you know about the Candlelight Processional at the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays? This beautiful retelling of the Christmas story is a can't-miss experience during the holiday season!

     Thanks for stopping by, Ashley. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
