    :santa: Where can I buy the tickets? When should I buy tickets?
    Tickets can be ordered by calling 407-W-DISNEY or purchase online, https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tickets/events/. Once you purchase tickets, they will be linked to yourMy Disney Experience account.

    Definitely purchase in advance of the party, especially if you plan to attend one of the last parties, or if there is a specific day you prefer to go.

    :santa: What time does MVMCP start? What time can I enter the park?

    MVMCP officially starts at 7pm. Guests may enter Magic Kingdom using their party tickets starting at 4pm. This practice is not officially advertised by Disney, but it has been exercised for many years and Cast Members will readily confirm this information. None of the party-specific M&Gs or treats will begin until 7pm, with a few M&G exceptions.

    New in 2018 – Earlier Entry for DVC Members
    This year, Members and their guests can enter Magic Kingdom park starting at 2:00 PM, which is 2 hours earlier than ever before! Simply present your valid Disney Vacation Club Membership Card and your event ticket at the main entrance touchpoints to take advantage of this benefit. The benefit is valid for the Member and up to 7 guests with tickets to this event (a total of 8 people).

    :santa: Do I need a wristband? What if I want to stay without one?
    Yes, a wristband is included in the cost of admission. All ticket holders for this event will be required to wear a wristband. You may pick-up your wristband and map of the party at designated locations in the MK.

    Once the party begins at 7pm, Cast Members begin looking for those who do not have wristbands to exit the park.

    MVMCP Ticket Holders have purchased tickets with "their money" for the party; if you do not have a ticket/wristband make your way to exit the gates by 7pm.

    As discussed on another thread, there are different color wristbands, so NO Double Dipping to attend another party. Oh, my! I'm already in the park. Do I have to exit and re-enter for MVMCP? No, there are checkpoints within the park to check-in and receive wristbands for MVMCP!

    Locations (Will Update When 2019 Info Released)
    Tortuga Tavern (Adventureland)
    Fantasy Faire (Fantasyland)
    Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor (Tomorrowland) - Near the Exit

    :santa: Are FP+ Reservations available during the party?

    No, there are no FP+ reservations in the park after 6 p.m., the closing time of Magic Kingdom to day guests.

    You can, however, make FP+ reservations using your party ticket for the 4-6:00pm time period (FP+ Selections should be booked between 3:30-6:00pm), before the party officially begins. The good news is that most attraction lines will be short enough during the party that you won’t miss FP+ reservations much. New for 2017 with the Magic Kingdom closing @ 6pm to day guests, FP+ will cease to be available after 5:30pm-6:00pm and the 15 minute late grace period will not be given; this is the same for 2018 too.

    When Can I Make FP+ Reservations?
    Staying at a Disney World Resort: 60D in Advance
    Staying at a Non-Disney Resort: 30D in Advance

    Please note, if you only purchased MVMCP tickets, your FP+ reservation is still based on resort check-in day (60D in Advance).

    :santa: Should I attend?
    Is MVMCP worth it? IMO it is most definitely worth the price at least once. I thoroughly enjoyed MVMCP, and we plan to attend 2 parties this year (fingers crossed for dates). It’s definitely worth it if your budget allows.

    There’s plenty of special entertainment, special decorations and lighting, and lots of unique character meet and greets.

    If you decide to attend MVMCP, make sure to purchase your tickets in advance, and use any available discounts (i.e. DVC, AP, etc,).

    Tickets are more expensive on the day of the party, and several nights each year sell out completely.

    :santa: Party Crowds
    MVMCP is a special ticket event with a limited amount of tickets sold. It has been discussed that more tickets are being sold as of late. However, due to Party Entertainment, crowds tend to be more concentrated around the events, especially the parade and fireworks. November party dates will almost always be less busy than December dates, and Tuesdays are usually less crowded than parties offered on other days of the week. Day of the week tends to matter as well, with Monday through Thursday evenings being less busy than the weekend events.


    :santa: Can I purchase Memory Maker for MVMCP ONLY?
    Yes, Disney PhotoPass now offers Memory Maker (MM) One Day (Disney PhotoPass Website Updated on 3/25/16).
    The Memory Maker Window begins at 6:00am EST on the day you use the 1D theme park admission with which MM is bundled at purchase or if MM was purchased separately, the date the photo selected on the MDE app, or of applicable, on MyDisneyPhotoPass.com when purchasing MM or when linking a previously purchased MM code to your Disney account and ends at 5:59am EST on the following day.(i.e. The 1D Memory Maker can be purchased in the app, after you have a photo loaded into your account, click on the photo, and you will get the option to purchase either the 30-day MM for $169, or the 1-day MM for $69).

    PhotoPass photographers will take Magic Shots during the party where you will pose and when you see the photos afterward, you'll see something magically inserted into the photo.
    Email: disneyphotopass_support@disneyworld.com or Call 407-560-4300

    Magic Shots
    Disney PhotoPass Photographers will be available to capture Special Holiday Themed Magic Shots at the Main Entrance, Town Square, Main Street, U.S.A., the Castle Hub and in front of The Haunted Mansion.
    (See Post #2)
    :santa: Are there any Dining Options?
    Dining is available at select counter service and snack locations throughout the park, but is very limited once the party begins. It’s probably wise to eat your main evening meal prior to attending the party.

    :santa: Snow on Main Street, U.S.A.
    This isn’t “real” snow, it is actually imitation snow. There is a “snowfall” on Main Street (Between Casey's Corner & the Emporium) before the parades and then at the end of the evening. There is also snow on Main Street after the fireworks. It can snow intermittently on Main Street, but there is not snow during A Frozen Holiday Wish or the Fireworks. There is also snow in Tomorrowland immediately following A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show.
    :santa: What are the times for Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade?
    Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade runs at 8:30pm and 11:00pm (2018).

    It has been discussed that the second parade is less crowded than the first. There are advantages and disadvantages to both depending on your party size/age and party plans.

    FYI: The parade route begins in Frontierland, follows the waterway until it reaches Liberty Square, crosses the Liberty Square bridge, circles Central Plaza in front of Cinderella's Castle, then heads down Main Street, U.S.A., where it ends next to Harmony Barbershop.
    :santa: What time is Holiday Wishes (Fireworks)?
    Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season is at 10:00pm on party nights (2018).

    Holiday Wishes is Exclusive to MVMCP.

    MVMCP Dining FAQ

    :santa: Can I make ADRs in the Magic Kingdom WITHOUT a party ticket?
    Yes, you can make your reservations up until 6:00pm. Please note you will be asked to leave the property as soon as your dining experience is complete. If you have not purchased a MVMCP ticket, you can purchase a same day ticket IF the party has not sold out.

    :santa: Should I eat in a Disney Restaurant while the party is going on? Will I miss something?

    This is subjective, and you will see conflicting opinions posted on various threads. Remember - you can enter the park at 4pm if you have purchased a MVMCP ticket. Most agree that you should eat either before, or during the 4-7pm time periods so you DO NOT waste time/miss the Christmas Festivities.

    Are the tickets refundable since you have to book so far in advance?

    Now that halloween tickets have gone on sale, when should we expect to see Christmas? March maybe?

    Disney will work with you on a case-by-case basis. Example, you change your plans, your tickets are probably yours. You have a death in the family, somebody cannot make it, your vacation dates change, they will work with you.
    Official policy is that one purchased that is it, but Disney has been known to review the situation and make a decision from there.

    Hmm, okay. So a 50-50 chance of a modification. Assuming there are still spaces open on another party night...

    The March/April timeframe has been the norm, with party dates and tickets for both MNSSHP and MVMCP released together.

    My guess is that with the “late fall” opening of GE, and the early release of free dining and MNSSHP tickets, Disney is doing their best to entice as many people as possible to book “early fall.” I would not expect to see MVMCP details any earlier than normal, and maybe even later,as they brace for huge crowds at the end of the year.

    Wish we weregoing again this year!

    My nephew got sick while at the resorts a couple of years ago. Disney refunded their tickets in full and even comped them the day they missed at the parks.

    Love the Christmas Party! We attended the first 2018 party (11/8) and I was surprised at how light the crowds seemed for a sold out party (cookie lines were quick and we didn't see a wait time above twenty minutes all night - except for Dwarfs, of course) until we went to the hub for Holiday Wishes and realized that's where everyone was all night, lol. Wall to wall people. We'll be visiting this year the week before Thanksgiving so definitely planning on going again. It's just such a fun time!

    I had to change my tickets from November to December due to a surgery. They had no problem doing it but I did have to pay the difference in price.
