    Hi... I am planning a trip in December and have 2 questions. One, I plan on purchasing tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Can I use Disney Gift Cards for this? And two, any idea when Candlelight Dining Packages will go on sale?

    Hey there, Erin! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so glad you stopped by to bring us your question!

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the holidays is an extra magical treat. With so many special holiday events to experience and getting to see the theme parks and resorts in all their holiday glory… swoon. I absolutely love to visit during Christmas!

    Erin, I’m happy to share that you can absolutely purchase your tickets for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party with your Disney Gift Card.  Disney Gift Cards are good for pretty much anything Disney. You can use them at all theme parks, Disney Merchandise locations, at the Disney Store online, Disney Cruise line and more.

    I’m excited you are planning to experience the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. That experience takes my breath away every time I get to see it. Schedules are usually released six months in advance, so those should be posting soon! I also recommend signing up for the Disney Parks Blog newsletter so you can receive the latest news and most up-to-date information about everything happening at Disney Parks.

    I hope you have a very merry visit this holiday season! Please be sure to come back and see us for any additional tips and planning advice. It’s our pleasure to help you plan a most magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See you real soon!
