    We have tickets to MVMCP on 12/16/18. Just got dining reservations for CRT at 10:45pm. Concerned as we are grandparents traveling with a 7 yr old princess fanatic! Should we arrive before reservation and what time do fireworks begin? First time @ disney!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lori!  What a merry celebration you have ahead of you! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is an amazingly festive evening of snowy fun.

    I always recommend that you check into your dining location about 10 minutes before your reservation is supposed to take place so Cast Members can guide you in. At Cinderella’s Royal Table you won’t want to miss your meeting with Cinderella herself! As for Holiday Wishes, the incredible fireworks display that evening, it usually takes place around 10pm, lasting around 15 minutes. Take your places around the Central Hub early enough to have your chosen view, and after the show is over, make your way past Cheshire Cat Cafe to the back of the Castle to check in for dinner. You’ll love chatting with your family about the magic you’ve just seen before dinner.

    Be sure to check the Times Guide as you enter for the party. The souvenir schedule will detail the parade (you won’t want to miss the earlier showing of the jolly event) times as well as confirm the fireworks show for you. If I can help you find more holiday fun for your first vacation, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
