    Hello! We are dining at Be Our Guest the same night as a Christmas Party. Our dining reservation is at 4:30pm. Do we need to purchase Christmas Party tickets in order to keep our reservation. Thanks, Kristen J.

    Hello, Kristen!

    The holiday season is one of my favorite times to visit the Walt Disney World Resort! There is nothing better than being surrounded by the beautiful and festive decor and feeling the spirit of the season through the jolly Disney Cast Members. I love spending time at Magic Kingdom and soaking in all the holiday pixie dust especially on Main Street, U.S.A.

    I'm excited to hEAR you'll be visiting this holiday season and will be dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Beast's Castle! Be prepared for a royal feast fit for a king (or Beast!) when you arrive for your sit-down meal. There will be no need to cancel this coveted reservation because Magic Kingdom will not close for a couple more hours after your reservation. Guests attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party can enter the park at 4:00 p.m., but the official start to the party isn't until 7:00 p.m. 

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one reason my family loves to visit Magic Kingdom during the holiday season, so it is something to consider if you are visiting when the party is offered. Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, snow on Main Street, U.S.A., special character appearances, hot cocoa and cookies are just a few of the unique offerings available at this special event. Your family will enjoy a night full of enchantment at Magic Kingdom if you decide to purchase tickets. 

    Kristen, thank you for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your dining question. We hope you'll keep us in mind as you continue to make your magical plans for December.
