    Planning to go November 2016. If you make a diner booking before the special event starts will you still be able to keep your booking or have to leave the park early on those special ticket dates?

    Hi Kaylyn,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for sending us your question!

    If you have dinner reservations inside a Disney Theme Park on an evening when a Special Ticketed Events is taking place, don't worry! You may certainly keep your dining reservation. Your party will be allowed to remain in the theme park until the end of your meal. Afterward, Cast Members will scan your family's MagicBands, Special Event tickets or check to see if you have wristbands for the Special Event in order to stay for the duration. If you do not, they will graciously escort you toward the exit of the theme park.

    Disney Mom Tip: Be sure to book advanced dining reservations 180 days prior to your visit. You can make reservations by calling (407) WDW-DINE (407-939-3463), booking directly online or via the My Disney Experience Mobile app.

    Wishing you an unforgettable vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort!
