    Can Mickey's Very Merry Christmas tickets be linked to Magic Bands?

    Hi Patricia! 

    I'm excited to hear you're planning to attend one of Walt Disney World Resort's most fun and festive special events - Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Held on select nights at Magic Kingdom Park, it's definitely the most magical way to celebrate the season. 

    Not only will Cinderella Castle be sparkling from top to bottom with twinkling lights, but the entire park will be decked out in Christmas decorations. Holiday treats will be offered throughout the park, from hot chocolate to apple cider, to warm pretzels shaped like snowmen. My family made it our goal to sample every Christmas treat at last year's party - I have no regrets about those calories!

    You are absolutely able to link your Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party tickets to your MagicBands. After you purchase your tickets, you can use the ticket number on your email confirmation to assign the tickets to members of your traveling party via My Disney Experience. The hard tickets should arrive in the mail prior to your party date, and I always suggest making sure to have them with you,  just in case. 

    Party guests will be allowed to enter the park at around 4PM with their valid party ticket. Make sure to use the specially marked party entrance (Cast Members will have signs to guide the way), to make sure your party ticket is scanned from your MagicBand. The actual start time for the festivities is 7:00 PM. I like to arrive early and grab a bite to eat (a small bite, to save room for the holiday treats!) or experience some favorite attractions before the party begins. 

    I hope this helps with your planning. Have a holly jolly good time at the party! - Diane W.
