    We have a 8:25PM reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table, will we miss the Minnie fireworks show during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Heidi!

    The holiday season is my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort. There's something about that extra bit of pixie dust that get sprinkled right around Christmas that makes it the perfect time of year for a magical family vacation. There's so much to see and do, so I'm happy to walk you through what to do if you think some of your plans may overlap.

    The schedule for the events of this year's Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party have not been announced yet, but going off of some of the things we know from previous Parties, I think you're going to have enough time to enjoy both your dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table as well as Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks. The show is brand new for this year so we don't know a lot about it just yet, but the fireworks spectacular has typically begun around 10:15 p.m. in years past so I expect it to begin at about the same time during your upcoming visit. Make sure to pick up a Party map when you arrive for the evening so you can see where and when to meet Disney Characters, take in Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, and of course, enjoy the new fireworks show. Dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table is a grand experience and can sometimes take up to two hours, but with the time you have you'll be able to have a lovely meal, meet some new royal friends, and finish just in time to catch the fireworks. Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks can be viewed from most locations around Magic Kingdom Park, so grab a great spot and enjoy the show!

    Have a magical day, Heidi!
