    I scored a 5:30pm ADR for CRT (yay!) on a MVMCP night, so we’ll be leaving the park about the time the party starts. We’re doing the party another night so won’t have tix. Will last-minute shopping on Main St. on the way out of the park be possible?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Pamela! 

    Hooray for such a pixie-dusted Advanced Dining Reservation! Cinderella’s Royal Table is one of the most coveted reservations to get, so I’d venture to guess this visit is already gearing up to be an extra magical one.

    Pamela, because cast members are working on welcoming party goers and helping escort non-party goers to exit the park in a timely manner, you likely won’t be able to enjoy last minute shopping that evening. I would suggest planning on shopping earlier that day or during the day you will be enjoying Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. 

    Don’t forget you can arrive a little before the party begins to enjoy the park and maybe get some of that shopping done. Once you see the Cast Members lined up in their holiday attire, guests with party tickets will be allowed to enter the park. So, plan accordingly and make the most of your very merry visit to the most magical place on earth!

    I hope you have the most holly, jolly vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season! Be sure to enjoy all the festivities happening at all four theme parks. It’s the most wonderful time of the yEAR to visit! 

    See ya real soon,
