    We are staying @ GFH & have dinner res.for 5:30@ Citrioces for Dec 16. We are going to MVMCP will we be late for the start of it. Should we just eat inside of the park & not keep our reservation there? Thank-you

    Hello Gail!

    I am happy you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about your dinner reservation at Citrico's.  We happen to really enjoy dining there Gail, and in my opinion, it is a great choice. This is what you should think about.  Your tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party will grant you entrance to Magic Kingdom Park after 4pm.  Although the party festivities will not begin until 7pm, you might like to enter the park early in order to visit some favorite attractions.  If that is not the case, and you are just looking for party festivities, you should be fine.  I recommend that you arrive at the restaurant 10-15 minutes in advance of your reservation time.  If you order quickly, an hour is a good amount of time to allow for a nice dining experience.  Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is just one stop away from Magic Kingdom Park via the Disney Monorail.  If you do not make it to the park right at 7pm, you should make it there shortly afterwards.  I hope this helps with your decision!

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
