    Have tickets to Mickey’s Christmas party at MK. We have park passes with a hopper. Starting our day at Epcot. If park hopping is full at 2pm what time are we guaranteed to get into MK for the party? Looking to make MK dinner reservations. Thanks

    Hi there, Bernie!

    I'm so excited to hEAR you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort in November. Not only will all four parks be celebrating the 50th Anniversary, but all the festive fun of the holidays will be happening too! What a wonderful time to be in The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    I'm thrilled you're planning to attend a Disney Very Merriest After Hours event during your vacation. This exclusive 4-hour event, held at Magic Kingdom Park on select nights from November 8 - December 21, is sure to be quite the jolly holiday experience! Event ticketholders will be admitted to Magic Kingdom as early as 7:00 PM on the day of their event, which allows for extra time to enjoy the park, grab a bite to eat, and see the all-new Disney Enchantment Nighttime Spectacular prior to the start of the After Hours event. 

    As for your ticket with the Park Hopper Option, I can tell you that as many times as I've visited recently, I've never had any issues with being able to hop to a second park due to capacity. I hope that you'll have the same experience! That being said, it's always recommended that Guests book in-park dining at the park where they have a guaranteed Disney Park Pass reservation. If you are able to enter Magic Kingdom Park earlier on that day, you can always try adding your party to the walk-up list at one of the Table Service restaurants via the My Disney Experience mobile app, once you arrive. Another option would be to book a dining reservation at one of the nearby resorts (Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, or Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa), then hop on the monorail to zip over to Magic Kingdom Park for the event!

    When scheduling your meal, keep in mind that your Disney Very Merriest After Hours ticket gives you access to all-you-care-to-enjoy ice cream novelties, popcorn, select beverages, and a seasonal treat throughout the evening. Make sure to save room for these goodies!

    I hope this helps with your planning and preparations for your magical vacation. Please come back and visit us here at planDisney if you have more questions before you arrive. We're happy to help!
