    I have reservations at Crystal palace for 7:45pm at the end of Nov, 2016 The park closes at 7pm. Do I need a special ticket to stay in the park past 7? The website says after 7 pm is a special ticketed event but I don't know what event that is. Thanks.

    Hi Victor,

    Greetings from a fellow Texan! I am thrilled you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your important question. It is our pleasure to assist guests with their planning.

    Most likely the special event happening toward the end of November is Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This special ticketed event occurs on select evenings from early November to just before Christmas. On those evenings, the park is closed to the general public and to remain in the parks for a 7:45pm reservation, you would need tickets to this event. If you choose not to purchase tickets for the party, you need to reschedule your reservations to Crystal Palace.

    If your budget allows, I would highly recommend considering this special holiday event. There is an exclusive parade that can only be seen during the party, a special fireworks spectacular with holiday themed music. There is complimentary cookies and hot cocoa and special character meet and greets, many of which the characters are in their holiday attire. Select attractions remain open for your enjoyment, too. It even "snows" on Main Street, USA! For more information or to purchase tickets, be sure to click on the link above.

    Have a magical trip and feel free to stop back by with more questions as your planning continues.
