    I’ll be visiting Magic Kingdom Dec 22nd. Do I need to buy a special event ticket for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party? If so, what can I do if online such tickets are sold out?

    Holiday Greetings, Yulissa!

    A warm welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for visiting us with your great question about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. You have chosen an incredible month to visit the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. The holidays are the most magical time of the year in "the World"!

    Yulissa, you do not need to buy a special event ticket for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in order to visit Magic Kingdom Park on December 22. However, you will need to exit the theme park before the official start of the party. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party begins at 7:00 p.m. ET.

    The official park hours for Magic Kingdom Park on December 22 are as follows: 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. with Extra Magic Hours from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 a.m.

    In other words, if you are a Disney Resort hotel Guest, it is possible for you to be in Magic Kingdom Park starting at 7:00 a.m. for Extra Magic Hours until the start of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party when you will be escorted out of the park by a friendly Cast Member if you do not have a party ticket. If you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will be able to enter Magic Kingdom Park at 8:00 a.m.

    Unfortunately, there is no way of purchasing Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tickets online once they have sold out. The parties taking place on the dates closest to Christmas Day always sell out quickly and rarely become available again. You may inquire about tickets once you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Yulissa, I wish you an unforgettable holiday vacation. If you have any additional questions, please jingle your way to the Moms Panel again.
