    I have park reservations for magic kingdom on a day I did not realize is a special event night. Can I pay the extra difference for the event or do I have to purchase a while separate ticket?

    Hey, Chani! Welcome to planDisney.

    I bet you are counting down the days until you arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth. With all the merry music, seasonal snacks, and festive décor, there's nowhere I'd rather be during the Christmas season

    Chani, the special event happening at Magic Kingdom Park is Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This is a special ticketed event that requires a separate ticket. There are tickets available for December 15th for $189.00 plus tax and December 19th for $199.00 plus tax. I see that December 17th is currently sold out. Unfortunately, you are not able to pay the extra difference and "upgrade" your regular ticket. If you wish you attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party you'll have to purchase a separate ticket. I know that's not the answer you wanted to hear, Chani. If it makes you feel any better, usually, crowd levels at Magic Kingdom Park are much lower on special event days. In fact, the other theme parks will likely be busier than usual. Therefore, I would recommend you keep your park reservations at Magic Kingdom Park. I anticipate you being able to enjoy a fun-packed day with shorter wait times than usual. You'll then have a few hours in the evening to enjoy a nice meal at Disney Springs, an evening at the hotel pool, or even an early bedtime!

    I hope that's helpful, Chani. Please stop by planDisney again if you have any more questions. Have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
