    Hi moms and TIA- I just bought tickets for MVMCP dec. 2016 and was wondering if Be Our Guest restaurant will be open during the party and am I able to make ADR for it? Appreciate any info.

    Hi Bridgette!

    Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is one of my favorite extra ticket events. I love how this party really gets me feeling the spirit of the Holiday Season. My family especially loves spending time together on Main Street, U.S.A. while it snows with a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie in our hands. The Holiday Wishes fireworks display is absolutely beautiful and we love being in the Magic Kingdom park late into the evening for this event. My absolute favorite part of this party is Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Parade. There is something so magical about seeing the Toy Soldiers come to life right before your eyes and marching right in front of you.  I also love seeing Santa waving to us saying “Merry Christmas!”

    Be Our Guest Restaurant is typically open for the beginning part of the party (please note that this may not apply to every night of the parties.)  In the past you have been able to enter Magic Kingdom Park at 4:00 PM on party nights. Whenever I am attending one of the parties I try to make my dining reservations around 4:30 PM so that I have the rest of the night to enjoy all of the festivities. Dining Reservations can be made beginning 180 days prior to your arrival date. Once that 180 day mark approaches you will then be able to make your dining reservations and hopefully you will be able to reserve a spot at Be Our Guest Restaurant. Please note that this is a very popular dining location so reservations fill up quickly.

    I hope that you and your family have a magical time!
