    We are staying in a Disney hotel - Do we need to buy an event ticket as well as park entry ticket for Christmas Eve/ Day? Are there afternoon tickets for late arrival guests?

    Hi there, Antonia! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for setting aside the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    The Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort are right around the corner and so is your vacation! In the very near future, you will be enjoying all of the sights and sounds that ring in the most merriest season of the year!

    If you plan on visiting the theme parks on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, you will not need any special event tickets. In fact, the last day for the main holiday special event, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, is on December 22nd so tickets for this event will not be available for either of those days.

    In order to visit the parks on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, you will only need a general admission ticket. Currently, Mid-Day Magic Tickets are available but must be used on or before December 15th. If you are interested in this type of ticket, I would suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog. Even though the Mid-Day Magic Ticket is not currently being offered during your stay, you never know which unique offerings will be released and the Disney Parks Blog is the best place to find all the best, new information!

    I hope you have a magical time visiting Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season!
