    If we have park tickets on a very merry party night, can we dine after “park close”. For example, park close for non ticketed people is 7, can I book dining in the park at 7?

    Hi Ama and welcome to planDisney!

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is such a fun special event at Magic Kingdom Park!  I just love seeing all of the beautiful holiday decorations line Main Street U.S.A. and of course snacking on hot cocoa and cookies all night long.  The snickerdoodles are my favorite!

    The park hours have not been released yet for November, but typically Magic Kingdom closes to day Guests at 6:00 PM.  I spoke with a friendly Cast Member who confirmed that day Guests will not be accommodated for dining reservations that start at 7:00 PM or later, but anything before that is fine.  I've been checking out the dining reservations for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party nights and it looks like select restaurants have open reservations up until 6:50 PM , so that would be the latest you can make a dining reservation if you are not attending the party.  This could change for the Christmas party, but the two usually follow the same patterns.  If your meal concludes past the time the party starts, you will be directed to the exit when are you finished as any Guests without a party wristband have to leave.

    One of our favorite restaurants in Magic Kingdom Park is Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen in Adventureland.  I consider it a hidden gem with some really unique dishes.  Everything I've had there has been delicious!

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
