    We will be at Magic Kingdom on the day of a Very Merry Christmas Party but we are not buying party tickets. What is the latest time we can make a dinner reservation inside of Magic Kingdom? Is the cutoff at 6:00 pm or 7:00 pm?

    Hi Josh and welcome to planDisney!

    The holiday season is my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World!  The weather is cooler and I just love all of the beautiful decorations all around the theme parks, Disney Springs and at the Disney Resort hotels.  

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom Park officially starts at 7:00 PM, but I have seen dinner reservations available for up to 6:50 PM with a regular park ticket.  Once you are done with your meal, you will need to make your way to the exit of the park as Cast Members will be all around checking for party wristbands.  A hidden gem, and my daughter's favorite, is Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen in Adventureland.  The Brazilian Cheese Bread is an off-menu item and not to be missed!  My kids love their kids meals because they come with a delicious volcano cake.

    It looks like you'll be visiting towards the end of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.  I hope you have an EPCOT park day planned, because this festival is one of the best because you can taste your way around the "world" at the Global Marketplaces.  I can't wait to get my hands on the Filet Mignon in the Canada Pavilion and the Crème Brûlée in the France Pavilion.  They are always two of my favorites from this festival.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
