    What is the latest dining reservation I can make when MK closes at 6pm for MVMCP, if we don't have tickets? We have party tickets for another night, but would like to make dinner reservations as late as possible to maximize our MK park day.

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, April!

    I believe Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a “can’t be missed event.” To top it off, guests experience the holiday spirit and enjoy the event on select nights from November 8 through December 22. Count me in!

    You are correct; Magic Kingdom Park closes on the nights of the party at 6:00 PM for those guests who will not participate in the festivities. Depending on availability, you can make your advanced dining reservations up to 6:00 PM, and you will be able to enjoy your meal. Once you are done, cast members will assist you with arriving at the front of the theme park so you can exit. I suspect a 6:00 PM dining reservation on those nights could be hard to come by, so I recommend shooting for a 4:30 /5:00 PM reservation for the best chance of getting a table at your favorite restaurants. Also, reserve your dining as soon as the 60-day reservation window opens to optimize your chances of getting your desired reservation.

    We will be here if you need anything additional.

    Have a magical time!
