    Hello moms, I made a dinner reservation at be our guest at 4:30pm. Considering that day will be a special ticketed event startig at 7pm until 1am, I want to ask, can I enter earlier that 7 to the park?

    Hi Jinna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you'll be on your way to Walt Disney World Resort so soon! Dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant is a highly sought-after dining reservation, and one that's hard to get. I do hope you're excited to dine in Beast's Castle and visit the forbidden West Wing. As a side note, if anyone in your dining party can't make it at the last minute, I'm sure I know a Moms Panelist or 40 who would love to fill in their place.

    While Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party starts at 7:00 P.M., Magic Kingdom Park is open from 9:00 A.M. until 6:00 P.M. on the days when the party is held. Since Be Our Guest Restaurant is located inside Magic Kingdom Park, a valid theme park admission ticket is required for entry to all seatings.

    If you are not planning on attending the holiday party on the same day as your reservation, you will still be able to dine with your regular theme park admission ticket as long as the reservation is before 6:00 P.M. If you are only planning on attending the party on this date, some holiday party guests have been able to enter as early as 4:00 P.M., however this is not a guarantee. You can try to change your reservation to a time after 7:00 P.M., or you can try to enter Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party early while showing your dining reservation confirmation to help your case.

    I hope you enjoy the rest of these holiday events and celebrations during your visit, Jinna, and We'll See You Real Soon!
