    Hi! I’m hoping you’ll be able to help. My family will be attending MVMCP and I’m wondering how the system knows to use your party ticket vs your regular parks tickets? I’m planning to get us in at 4pm but didn’t know if you’re supposed to tell the CM

    Hello, Michelle! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    I had the exact same experience when I arrived for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party last week, and I have great news to share. When Magic Kingdom Park starts welcoming party Guests at 4 p.m., the Cast Members are ready to make sure that the only ticket used is the one for the party. 

    Actually, the last time I used a Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket to enter Magic Kingdom Park before the party started, the Cast Member told me that the turnstiles used for party Guests were programmed to use party tickets exclusively.

    You can also talk to the Cast Member before tapping your MagicBand or Card, just to be sure. Let them know that you intend to use a Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party ticket instead of a regular Theme Park ticket, and they will help you in a second!

    I hope you and your family have the most wonderful time at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, Michelle! 

    My friend Anne Marie and I loved the live entertainment offered in Tomorrowland the last time we were there. My friends and I also loved the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. Watching it from Frontierland is super strategic if you want to make the most of your time at the party! 

    If you want more help before you hop on the sleigh to the Walt Disney World Resort, please, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle!

    We are Mickey's Helpful Elves at your service!

    May the magic be with you,
