    I purchased tickets for mickeys very merry Christmas party. Can I enter the park at 4:00 pm.

    Hello Linda! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When celebrating the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort, there is nothing more festive and full of Christmas cheer than Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

    Guests with a Special Event Ticket for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party can enter Magic Kingdom earlier than the scheduled 7:00pm start time in order to properly prepare themselves for festivities. The time at which Guests can enter is not solidly set for exactly 4:00pm but rather when Cast Members open the special queues for Guests to enter Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

    In the past, Guests have been granted access to Magic Kingdom as early as 4:00pm, but there is no guarantee of being granted admittance until Cast Members open the Special Event queues.

    When my family visited Magic Kingdom for Mickey's Not-so-Scary Halloween Party, I was confident enough in our early admittance to book Advanced Dining Reservations at Be Our Guest Restaurant and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to prepare for the trick-or-treating fun.

    While I wouldn't recommend that you schedule anything for exactly 4:00pm, many Guests (including myself) plan for early entry into Magic Kingdom for Special Events. In my experience, I have never arrived later than 5:00pm and not been denied entry on a Special Event Ticket.

    Have a Very Merry Visit!
