    I have paid ticket to the merry Christmas on 11/29. Do I need to make another park reservation, like I did for the regular park admittance?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Alise. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort next week! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure.

     A Disney vacation is always magical, but exceptionally so during the holiday season. With dazzling décor, festive entertainment, and seasonal treats, it's a fa-la-la-la-fabulous time to visit the theme parks!

     You're going to love experiencing the Disney Very Merriest After Hours event. It's truly the merriest way to celebrate the holidays! You ask a great question about the event. You do not need to make a Theme Park Reservation for Disney Very Merriest After Hours. All you need is your event ticket! With your event ticket, you can enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7:00 PM. This gives you some extra time to enjoy the park before the event officially begins! It's important to note that if you'd like to enter Magic Kingdom Park prior to 7:00 PM that day, you would need a Theme Park Ticket and a Theme Park Reservation for Magic Kingdom Park or a Theme Park Ticket with Park Hopper Option. 

     Did you know your Disney Very Merriest After Hours ticket includes complimentary popcorn, ice cream novelties, and select beverages from snack carts throughout the park? When Disney Very Merriest After Hours begins, be sure to grab an event guide. The guide lists event-exclusive entertainment schedules, jolly Character sightings, festive Disney PhotoPass opportunities, and the locations where you can find the snack carts. Your ticket also includes delicious snickerdoodle cookies and hot cocoa at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, Columbia Harbour House, Pinocchio Village Haus, and Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café. YUM!

     I hope this was helpful, Alise. I'm wishing you a magical (and merry!) visit to the Walt Disney World Resort this week!
