    Read on other boards that people w/o wristbands are in the park during MVMCP.The park is supposed to close before the party, is there a check to make sure noone is in the park before they reopen or if you are there you can just stay? Is it worth the money?

    Hi Joanna,

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party begins at 7pm on select nights and runs until midnight.  This is a ticketed event, and all party goers are given a wristband to identify them as party guests.  At seven o'clock, only guests with wristbands are allowed onto attractions.  Everyone else is asked to leave the park.

    There are, unfortunately, some guests who have not purchased tickets that choose to stay for the entertainment.  It would be impossible to have cast members walking around asking people to show their wristbands.  So, yes, you can just stay, but it wouldn't be the right thing to do.

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is one of my favorite events, and I can't wait to take my family in December.  The wait time for attractions is minimal, the entertainment is festive, the decorations are beautiful (the castle is stunning and it even snows on Main Street), and the cookies & hot chocolate are a welcomed treat.  It's a great way to add some holiday flair to your magical vacation.

    Hope this helps.

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
