    I have reservations at 8:15pm for Be Our Guest Restaurant on the same day as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. I am not planning on attending MVMCP. Am I okay to still go to my reservation at Be Our Guest even though the park will close at 6pm?

    Welcome to planDisney, Arianna! 

    I hope you're getting excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World resort trip. There's nothing quite like The Most Magical Place on Earth during the Christmas season. One of my favorite things to do is simply visit the Disney Resorts and enjoy the festive décor. The gingerbread houses in particular are spectacular. You can even purchase gingerbread to eat at some of the hotels. Did you know that each hotel uses a slightly different recipe? Here's a challenge: taste each one and discover which you think is tastiest!

    Arianna, since Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is a special ticketed event, only Guests with a ticket for the party are able to stay in Magic Kingdom Park past 6:00 PM. Some exceptions are made for those who have dining reservations around the 6:00 PM mark. However, since your dining reservation for Be Our Guest Restaurant is at 8:15 PM, I'm afraid this will be too late. You will be required to leave the park a long time before your reservation. Therefore, unfortunately, you'll have to cancel your dining reservation. I'm really sorry, Arianna. I know that's not the answer you wanted to hear. 

    Hopefully, you'll be able to find a dining reservation somewhere else that evening. Maybe try some of the fantastic restaurants at Disney Springs. If you can't find a table service restaurant, then there are some great quick-service restaurants to try. If you like burgers and milkshakes (made with gelato!), you can't go wrong with D-Luxe Burger. If you're in the mood for some Asian cuisine, Morimoto Asia Street Food is really tasty. Or if you just want to fill up on good ol' American BBQ, stop by The Polite Pig.

    I hope you have a wonderful time, Arianna. Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney.
