    Visiting for Nov/Dec and we want Magic Kingdom with a regular ticket. Is it a good idea to go to the park the same days as the Christmas party, will we be getting less Magic hours? Will a Christmas ticket be a better option? Adults/teen visiting

    Hi Ana Beatriz and welcome to planDisney! I’m so excited to know you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for the Holidays! Thanks for sending us your question.

    Disney Very Merriest After Hours is going to be so fun! I have done the Christmas parties in the past and I always feel like they’re a great value. You will be able to enter the park as early as 7 p.m., even though the party starts at 9 p.m. Also, the event doesn’t end until 1 a.m., so if you arrive at 7 p.m., you still get a solid six hours at the park.

    I like these events a lot because there are a lot less guests in the park during these nights. Some snacks are included in the price of your ticket, you will get to see Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show! It really is my favorite way to welcome the Holiday season with my family.

    If you just want to visit the Magic Kingdom Park for the day, which will be absolutely incredible, try to choose a day when the party isn’t taking place, because you will have to leave early. 

    Ana Beatriz, I hope I’ve been helpful. If you need any more planning advice, you can always come back to visit us here or at planDisney en Español. ¡Siempre es nuestro placer ayudarte con tus planes!

    ¡Hasta pronto!
