    If we are in Magic Kingdom the same day that the Christmas event takes place, do we happen to experience the same things than the ones who buy tickets for the event (snow in Main St.,etc) What's the difference? Does the Park closes earlier those nights

    Hi, Fernanda!  Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is a special ticket event, and the Magic Kingdom does close earlier on the evenings that the party takes place.  Guests that are there on a regular theme park ticket leave at park closing, and then the party festivities begin at 7 o'clock.  There is a slight chance you may see the snow on Main Street, but usually, the guests who have enjoyed the park during the day have already gone by the time the party is in full swing.  Your regular park pass will not allow access to the party or the party festivities, however, if you purchase a party ticket, you do not need to leave and re-enter.  You would be directed to a location where you would show your party pass in exchange for a party wrist band.

    My family usually attends the party, but we spend the day doing things like going to the pool or heading to Downtown Disney for some shopping.  I try to get my kids to take naps so they can stay up late and enjoy the party!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!  What a magical time of year to visit Walt Disney World!
