    We are going to Mickeys Very Merry Christmas party on Friday Dec. 17, no Magic Kingdom tickets during the day, and have reservations at Crystal Palace at 3:35 pm. Will this work or do I need to find another place to dine? Thanks!

    Hi Nicole,

    Unfortunately you will need to either change your reservations to 4:20, or choose another restaurant outside of the Magic Kingdom if you don't have tickets for that day. While the Party officially starts at 7:00pm, you gain early access with your tickets at 4:00pm. You need to check in at least 15 minutes early for a dining reservation and the Crystal Palace is located a 5 minute walk down Main Street, USA. Based on this, 4:20 or later would work. If you would prefer to dine earlier, you may wish to try a restaurant located in one of the monorail Resorts. I'd recommend 'Ohana in the Polynesian or Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary.

    You are going to love Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. If you do go in for early entrance, be sure to wander back to the beginning of Main Street around 7:00pm. The snow falling around you, while you stroll towards the Dream Light draped Cinderella Castle...it's spectacular.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
