    Since MVMCP goers can enter the park at 4, can they purchase an ILL for TRON without having a day park ticket?

    Hi Mary! Welcome to planDisney!

    One of the best perks to attending Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is being able to enter Magic Kingdom at 4 PM. This extra time allows you to enjoy some of the non-party offerings before the event officially begins at 7 PM. This may include stopping in one of the many shops for a few merchandise items, grabbing a bite to eat, or riding some attractions.

    From my experience, you will not have the option to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane without having a linked Disney Park Pass reservation on this day. However, I would check your My Disney Experience App on the day of your visit to see if the option is available. If so, and you are staying in a Disney Resorts hotel during your stay, you can try to secure an Individual Lightning Lane beginning at 7 AM. Otherwise, you'll need to wait until the official park opening time to do so. With how popular this attraction has been since it opened, it may be difficult to secure a spot for the limited time available between 4-6 PM.

    Regardless, you'll still have the chance to ride TRON Lightcycle / Run during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. A Virtual Queue will open up at 6 PM specifically for Guests attending the party. You can join using your mobile app and secure a boarding group for this attraction. Once your boarding group is called, you'll typically have about one hour to get there.

    One of my favorite things to do at this special ticketed event is watching Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. The parade is absolutely magical, especially with snow falling from above on Main Street, U.S.A.

    Mary, I hope you have an amazing time during your visit! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
