    What time are we able to enter the park with our Christmas event tickets?

    Hi Holli,

    I'm thrilled to hear that you're planning to experience Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party this year. It's my very favorite special event of the entire year! I mean, complimentary snacks and treats? Short wait times for my favorite attractions? Special character meet and greets? Snow on Main Street, U.S.A.? Christmas-themed shows and dance parties? The all-new Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks show? And in my opinion, the very BEST part of the evening, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade? YES, PLEASE! Ohmygoodness, you're going to LOVE it!

    While the party officially kicks off at 7:00 p.m., Guests have historically been allowed entrance into Magic Kingdom Park with only a Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party ticket as early as 4:00 p.m. While these extra few hours are never guaranteed and are subject to change, you should be able to enjoy up to eight hours of magic and fun with only your special event ticket! In fact, if you link your special event ticket to your My Disney Experience account, it is possible that you may be able to make FastPass+ selections between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. if you haven't already used a regular theme park ticket to make FastPass+ selections for that day. 

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Holli, and please come back and see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation that leaves your heart FULL of Disney magic and Christmas joy!
