    I am thinking of attending the MVMCP and I was wondering should we make dinner reservations for Crystal Palace the night of the party or should we not plan on having a sit down dinner during the party so we don't miss any of the activities? Thank you

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is a fantastic event featuring a special parade and fireworks show, a number of shows offered during the event only, special meet and greet opportunities with Mickey and his pals and even hot chocolate, cookies and a little snow. Of course, most attractions are also open for your enjoyment. We make a point to visit every year!

    Guests who have purchased a ticket to the Christmas Party will be able to enter the Magic Kingdom at 4pm on party day, while the actual party does not begin until 7pm. A family tradition of ours, is to make dinner reservations at Crystal Palace somewhere around 4:30 or 5:00 on that evening. This way we are able to enjoy a delicious dinner, visit with Pooh and his friends and still be finished in time to enjoy the start of the party. By choosing an earlier reservation, you will have plenty of time to eat without missing any of the party.

    Crystal Palace is one of our favorite Disney World restaurants. The buffet offers a great selection of salads, meats, sides and desserts and my boys love that they can choose their own food. You will need your energy to party late into the night so it is a great idea to fuel up before the party starts.
    Have a great time!
