    We have reservation at restaurant during next christmas, we want to know what will happen it the park is full and close for new visitors. If we have park hopper tickets will it be possible to enter in the park if we have diner reservation

    Bonjour Annie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Walt Disney World Resort actually uses different “phases” for closures when it gets busy and those with Advanced Dining Reservations are most often guaranteed entry, unless the Disney Theme Park is truly at capacity, which has happened only a handful of times. That being said, sometimes the Parking Lots might fill up before the actual Disney Theme Park restricts entry, so keep that in mind if you happen to be driving. Since you are traveling at a busy time of yEAR, I suggest allowing yourself a good 90 minutes to 2 hours to “Park Hop” if that is your plan as Complimentary Resort Transportation can take a little longer when there are many people to transport and traffic can get congested as well.

    You will just LOVE being in the heart of the magic during the holiday season! I love the decorations around the entire Disney Resort! If you have time, try to stop by Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa to marvel at the grand Christmas tree and the life-sized gingerbread house! You can even purchase a shingle to snack on! 

    You and your family will be making magical memories before you know it! I’ve noticed that you are a fellow Canadian and that you are from Quebec, I wanted to point out that you can also visit us “en Français” over at la Tribune des mamans des parcs Disney!
