    I will have park days left, but planning on arriving at 4 for the special event, instead of using a park day. Do I need to do anything special to make sure I don't waste a park day & can I book fast passes after 4?

    Hi Jenni!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Based on your date of arrival, I'm assuming you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort to enjoy all the holiday fun at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!

    Just before you enter the park you should see a specific entrance for Guests visiting just for the party. If you visit these turnstiles, they are programmed to only scan for a Mickey Very Merry Christmas Party ticket so you won't have to worry about it accidentally removing one of the days off your 4 day ticket! If you can't find these entry ways just ask a friendly Cast Member prior to scanning your MagicBand and they should be able to point you in the right direction. 

    Please be aware that while you can certainly reserve FastPass+ you can only make them for the number of days you have tickets and My Disney Experience does not recognize a party ticket as a full park ticket. Since you'll have a 4 day ticket loaded in your account, you can only make 4 days worth of FastPass+ so if you make it on the party day you are blocking yourself from making reservations on another full day. 

    Please let us know if you have any other questions!
