    We have tickets and reservations into magic kingdom Already. If we want to attend the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party event, do we have to purchase separate tickets?

    Hiya Shawna,

    Welcome planDisney! There is no better time to visit Walt Disney World Resort than during the holidays. I love the holidays, and no one does it better than Walt Disney World Resort. The decorations are spectacular, and the entertainment enhances the season.

    Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is my most favorite part of the holiday season for sure! There is something about enjoying cocoa and watching the snow fall on Main Street, U.S.A. Speaking of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Guests wishing to attend this event must purchase a separate ticket. I recommend changing your existing Disney Park Pass Reservation to a different Theme Park (if available). With the separate ticket for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you can enter Magic Kingdom Park starting a 4 pm, so that leaves a lot of time to experience all that you wish to at the Theme Park. My family and I like to start our party day at EPCOT during the holiday season to experience the wonder of EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays. Then we take a midday break and nap at our resort hotel before heading to Magic Kingdom around 4 pm to enter the party!

    I hope my answer was helpful, Shawna, and you can modify your itinerary to enjoy Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party during your visit. Before I let you go, know that you will not be alone if you decide to take advantage of the 4 pm entry. Many people take advantage of this, so the lines to enter can be long. In my experience, if you hold off for 30-45 minutes, the line is less hectic, and your wait will be much more manageable. Please come back and see us if you need anything else.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
