    Good day, My family and I will be at WDW for Christmas 2020 and we are making plans from now. If I have dinner reservations at a Magic kingdom restaurant , would i be guaranteed entry into the park if closure is necessary due to large crowds?

    Hi Kandice!

    Thanks for reaching out to the Moms Panel! Christmastime at Disney is without question one of the most magical experiences imaginable! Sometimes my family and I feel like we're in the perfect Christmas movie, starring us, and Main Street U.S.A. is the perfect backdrop to our Winter Wonderland! :-)

    So I had to reach out to Guest Services on this one. The Guest Services Cast Member said if Magic Kingdom reaches crowd capacity on your Christmas visit to the theme park, she said you would still be allowed inside if you have dining reservations. What she said is you would likely be escorted to Guest Relations after park entry, and then Guest Relations will instruct from there. I asked if you would have to provide evidence to a Cast Member upon entry if you indeed had a Dining reservation, and she was unable to answer that part. The simplest answer is it appears you still get in! Yay!

    May you and yours have the merriest Christmas when you travel to Disney next year!
