    Is Tony's restaurant open during MVMCP? Is it worth it to try to get a patio table for parade and firework viewing? How many table are on there patio? I don't want to take away from the party, but I am worried about the crowds. Thanks!

    Hi, Kristen!

    I checked for Advanced Dining Reservations at Tony's Town Square Restaurant on nights that Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is taking place at Magic Kingdom Park and the latest available reservation I've been able to find is for 6:50 p.m.

    While you can certainly ask for a patio table upon checking in at the restaurant, you may have to wait for one and that could take a long time depending on many different factors. For example, when the Guests sitting there were seated and how far into their meal they are. You really wouldn't be able to see the Fireworks from the restaurant, even the patio tables...maybe just the very tops. Also, the Parade and Fireworks typically take place quite a bit later into the Party, so you wouldn't want to waste valuable Party time hanging out in the restaurant. Please don't get me wrong, the atmosphere at Tony's Town Square Restaurant along with the food are quite awesome in my family's opinion, but if you really want to eat there, I would try it on another night of your vacation. There are so many fabulous things going on with this hard-ticketed Event that I'd hate for you to miss.

    One last note, there are only a certain number of tickets sold for each night of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. I have found that there are shorter wait times at most of the Attractions. I think you'll be real happy with the crowds on Party nights compared to when all Guests are in the Park.

    I sure hope this helps, Kristen. Thanks so much for writing in and please let us know if we can help with any other questions you have.

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
