    Is there an option for a park hopper ticket that allows you to go to Epcot during the day and then Mickey Christmas at magic kingdom at night?

    Welcome to planDisney, Klatelyn. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is approaching and I see you're getting ready!

    While there isn't a Park Hopper Option that includes Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park, there is of course a way for you to experience EPCOT during the day and the party at night. To do so, simply purchase a theme park ticket for EPCOT and then a ticket for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on the same day. You'll be able to enjoy the different neighborhoods in EPCOT during the day and then hop over to Magic Kingdom Park for the ultimate holiday celebration!

    Did you know that while the party starts at 7 p.m., you can usually get into Magic Kingdom Park at 4 p.m. to get a few experiences done before the festivities officially start? I usually recommend doing this as some experiences aren't available during the party and there are so many party-exclusive activities you'll want to do, you'll likely be concentrating on those once 7 p.m. rolls around.

    And while most people associate this party and Magic Kingdom Park with the holidays, don't count out EPCOT. The EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays begins November 24, 2023, and runs until December 30, 2023. While Candlelight Processional certainly deserves the praise that it receives, the Holiday Storytellers around World Showcase are fun, interactive, and informative. I just love learning about different cultures and their holiday celebrations. Plus, I find you learn a lot about a culture through its food and the Holiday Kitchens throughout the park help you do just that!

    Klatelyn, you are certainly planning a magical and jolly visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I hope it's bright. I hope it's beautiful. And I hope it's full of joy. Make sure to stop, take a minute, and take it all in. Sometimes, being present in the moment is the greatest present you can receive.

    Please reach out with any questions. We're always here.

    Enjoy the sparkle,
