    Hi how late do characters meet until (specifically Rapunzel and Flynn Rider) during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party? Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Ashley! It's the most wonderful time of the year at Walt Disney World Resort. I bet you're looking forward to the three M's: Mickey, Merry, and Magic!

    You're in for some festive fun at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! Make sure to pick up an event map on your way into the park, and it will be marked with icons showing where the holiday treats, PhotoPass, and Character Greeting locations are. More than 25 Disney pals meet throughout the park during the party, and many are dressed up in their holiday finery. 

    Rapunzel and Flynn Rider meet in Fantasyland at Princess Fairytale Hall with Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen, meaning you can see four characters simultaneously while only waiting in one queue. Princess Fairytale Hall doesn't open until close to 7:00 PM, and typically it stays open until the end of the party at midnight. For the shortest wait time, get in line before 6:30 PM, or go during Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, either at 8:30 PM or 11:00 PM. Sometimes, they will close the line at 11:30 PM, so I advise arriving before that. While you're there, ask Rapunzel if she has her frying pan nearby!

    I recommend catching Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show at 10:00 PM. We watched from the castle hub this week, and the projections are beautiful! If you have little ones in tow, let them take a nap before arriving so they can stay up for the exclusive entertainment (to be truthful, I needed an afternoon rest, too)! While the festivities don't officially begin until 7:00 PM, party Guests can arrive as early as 4:00 PM, and Cast Members will be handing out wristbands at the entrances.

    May your Disney days be merry and bright, Ashley!
