    Hi! We have tickets to mickeys very merry christmas party. do we book fast passes for rides that night? or is it first come, first serve and you just stand on a line (however long wait is) for the ride? Thank You.

    Welcome back, Lorraine, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    During Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party the FastPass+ service is not available to guests. But no worries! During this exclusive event, the wait times for attractions and shows are lower than a normal night at the Magic Kingdom. 

    If you want to have the FastPass+ service at the Magic Kingdom, you must purchase a regular park ticket. You can then select available FastPass+ attractions or shows for the day until the Christmas Party begins at 7pm. 

    Guests who only have the Christmas Party ticket will be granted entrance into the theme park at 4pm, but the FastPass+ service is still not available to you. My family usually enters at 4pm and enjoys dinner at one of the restaurants around the Magic Kingdom. We finish dining just in time to walk through some of the shops along Main Street U.S.A before the party begins at 7pm. You can also enjoy any of the attractions and shows without the FastPass+ service by waiting in the regular wait line. Some guests even begin to gather in the lines for those special holiday character meet and greets. They want to be one of the first to meet those characters who don't normally appear in the parks. After they've gotten their PhotoPass picture, they enjoy the rest of the evening by dining on the complimentary snacks throughout the park.

    Have a holly, jolly time at Walt Disney World! Please visit with us again if you have more holiday planning questions.
