    We have a party of 3. 2 APs 1 non. We have Xmas party tickets for MK. We can get in at 4pm. I know I can buy Genie+ for us 2 APs but can I also buy Genie+ for our 1 person who only has the party ticket so that we can use it between 4 and 6?

    Welcome to planDisney, Kathy! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one of my favorite special events at Walt Disney World Resort, and we make a special trip to go every year. The nighttime spectacular, Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks, is my favorite fireworks show at Walt Disney World Resort so make sure to stick around until the end of the night so you can see it for yourself!

    Kathy, you've asked a great question about tickets, annual passes, and Party admission. Disney Genie+ service requires you to have regular admission to the Theme Parks. So, the members of your party with annual passes are eligible to purchase Disney Genie+ service and use it between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM on the day of the Party, but those who do not have regular admission and Disney Park Pass reservations are not able to use Disney Genie+. The great news is that you probably won't need it! Magic Kingdom Park tends to be a bit quieter on the days of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, so if you are able to get in right at 4:00 PM, you'll be able to take advantage of those typically lower wait times. I always recommend riding attractions between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM so you can devote those precious Party hours to the Christmas celebrations that are exclusive to the event!

    I hope this answers your question, Kathy, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
