    On the night we will go to MVMCP, we made reservations at BOG for 4:30. If Disney allows people to enter at 4, will we make it to our reservation? And, if security check-in is before park entrance, what time should we be there? Thanks for the help!

    Hi Charlene,

    I love your plan! I think you're in for a fantastic dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant and ending the evening with Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party sounds positively enchanting!

    Guests have been allowed into the park as early as 4 PM with a party ticket in past years, so assuming the schedule doesn't change for this year, you'll have plenty of time to get to your dining reservation. I recommend staying up to date with the Disney Parks Blog posts as the parties begin to make sure your timing works for this year's celebration.

    Once that is settled, I would aim to arrive at Magic Kingdom Park at around 3:45 PM, to allow time for going through security checks and obtaining your party wristband. That way, when Cast Members start allowing party Guests to enter the park, you'll just walk down Main Street, U.S.A. and right to Beast's castle in plenty of time for your reservation.

    I hope you have a wonderful holiday at Walt Disney World, Charlene. Hope to see you real soon!

    Andrea U.
