    I have a resort booked and tickets for the Christmas party only. I am able to link the party ticket to my hotel in order to make fast pass selections between the hours of 4-6?

    Hi, Carolyn! Get your tinsel ready and start practicing your jolliest "ho, ho, ho!" Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is the grandest seasonal celebration at Walt Disney World Resort. I have attended this event for the past several years and am looking forward to another visit this year. The part of the event that I am most looking forward to is the all-new nighttime spectacular, Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks. It, and of course, all the hot chocolate and cookies are sure to put us in a merry and bright mood!

    In previous years, there have been times that guests have been allowed to enter Magic Kingdom Park a bit early on the evening of the party. This has occasionally been as early as 4:00 p.m., but I know at times that it has been a bit later. When you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park, look for the entrance points that are designated for those with event tickets. Old Saint Nick and Mickey Mouse will give the go-ahead to Cast Members at the appropriate time to begin admitting attendees. Early entrance is always subject to change. Just in case you are allowed to enter early, you are welcome to make FastPass+ selections with the event ticket. If it does end up working out, then you can fit in a few of your favorite attractions before the fun begins! When I have done this, I usually start the first one earlier than 4:00 p.m., so that I can fit three in that two-hour timeframe.

    There is one thing to consider, though. You mentioned that you have tickets to the party only, but I just want to let you know of an issue in case you do decide to use a Disney Theme Park Ticket earlier that day. If you have FastPass+ selections set up on the same day that you are attending the party, then you will be unable to also make FastPass+ selections during the 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. timeframe. This is due to each guest's "three FastPass+ per day" limit.

    I hope this helps you plan the merriest of evenings, Carolyn! Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
