    Hi we have a reservation at the Royal Table a 6:55, I just realized it is the same night as Very Merry Christmas Parade, do I have to purchase tickets to the parade to enter? We are planning on spending the day at MK. Thanks

    Hi Andrew!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    I believe you are referring to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party which is a hard ticketed event in the Magic Kingdom on select nights.  The party runs from 7 pm until midnight.  The Magic Kingdom won't close to guests without party tickets until 7 pm, so you should be fine.  You just want to make sure you are at the restaurant long before 7 pm; in fact, I would recommend showing up at the restaurant at 6:30 pm at the latest.  After dinner, expect to be directed to the park exit; you really won't even be allowed to shop along the way like on a normal night when leaving the park.

    Enjoy planning your magical Disney vacation, and please write back with more questions!
