    We have dining reservations on our Epcot park day at 9:20pm during EMH's and are not staying on property. Will we be allowed entrance to an Epcot restaurant after 9pm as long as we are already in the park?

    Hello Tracy,
    It's so good to see you here, on the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love that you are bringing us your question about Extra Magic Hours
    It is always a great idea to show up at the restaurant several minutes prior to your advanced dining reservation time. That way, you will most likely be accommodated as soon as a table becomes available.

    You will certainly be allowed in to enjoy your meal; however, as you can imagine, attractions and other experiences will not be available to you or your family. After enjoying your delectable meal, I'm afraid you and your party will have to exit the Park and recharge yourselves for the next day. 
    I hope you already have a ticket for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party for your night of arrival (or any other night the party will be offered that week). Let me tell you that this is THE Christmas party you will not want to miss! The complimentary treats (cookies, eggnog, hot chocolate, etc.), the special breath-taking fireworks, Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks, special meet-and-greet opportunities, unique dining indulgences, the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, only offered during this amazing event, will make this night a truly unforgettable one! 
    Tracy, please come back to see us with more great questions as you finalize your plans for your trip! We will be right hEAR waiting to see you again!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
