    I have tickets for Mickey’s Christmas Party but no regular theme park admission. My understanding is that we are allowed in as early as 4pm. If I book a reservation for dining at Tony’s a few mins before 4pm, will I still be allowed in earlier than 4pm?

    Hi there, Jacqueline. Welcome to planDisney

    I think you are absolutely going to love visiting the Walt Disney World Theme Parks during the holiday season. The parks are all dressed up in their holiday best and it is so festive and fun. I visit every year during the week of Christmas and I absolutely love it. 

    I'm excited to know that you'll be enjoying Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party one evening during your vacation. The party is really special and I know my family and I have always had a memorable time going to it. With your party ticket, you are allowed early entry starting at 4:00 p.m. You will not be allowed in any earlier with your party ticket, even if you have a dining reservation. If you'd like to enter Magic Kingdom Park earlier than that, you will need to have a standard theme park ticket for that day. If you'd like to visit another theme park that morning, I'd suggest purchasing a park hopper ticket. Make your park pass reservations for another theme park and then hop over to Magic Kingdom Park anytime after 2:00 p.m. when park hopping hours start. Then, you'll be inside of the park when it is time for your dining reservation. Alternatively, you can try to change your reservation time to after 4:00 p.m. That is the only surefire way to make sure that you'll be able to dine there without having a regular theme park ticket for that day.

    I hope this helps lay out your options, Jacqueline. If you have any other questions about this, please don't hesitate to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Happy holidays!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
