    Hi please could you tell me what time we can enter the park on the Christmas with Mickey event please?

    Hello Sarah! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Get ready for some Holiday Cheer at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom. There is definitely extra Holiday Magic in the air when it begins to snow on Main Street, U.S.A. and Santa Claus come riding through on his sleigh during Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade.

    Before the scheduled Special Event festivities begin at 7pm, Guests taking part in Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party are welcome to enter Magic Kingdom early to get ready for all the fun. Guests are granted access to Magic Kingdom on their Special Event Tickets once Cast Members set-up and begin assigning Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party wristbands to Guests at the Main Ticket Gates.

    While there is not a set time for when Cast Members begin this process, historically Guests have been granted access as early as 4pm for previous Special Events. Whenever my family attends a Special Event that starts at 7pm, we arrive just before 5pm and are usually directed to the Special Event queue and granted access at that time.

    Usually, this extra time give us an opportunity for sit down Advanced Dining Reservations or time to enjoy a few attractions before the Special Event begins.

    Have a Very Merry Visit!
