    We having dinner at Crystal Palace at 4:40pm. We purchased tickets for the Very Merry Christmas Party and we're told we could enter the park at 4:00 Will this be enough time to make our way to Crystal Palace? Also, how long does dinner typically last?

    Hi Lyn!

         Happy Holidays!  While Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party won't begin until later, most people don't realize that you can enter the Magic Kingdom at 4:00 using only your party ticket.  You will have loads of time to make it over to the Crystal Palace - feel free to take your time.  Even though you have Advanced Dining Reservations at 4:40 PM, you most probably won't be seated immediately.  Once you are seated, you can start serving yourself from the buffet  right away.  In order to ensure that all of the characters stop by your table for a visit, plan on allowing around an hour to enjoy the fun.  Have a magical trip!

    Much pixie dust,
