    Hi, my family and I have booked a package with free dining for 3 days. I also bought tickets for the Christmas party. Will I be able to use fast pass during the party? And will I receive the free dining plan for that night? Thanks!

    Hi Johanna! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the Christmas season is one of the best times to visit in my opinion. There always seem to be just a little bit of extra Pixie Dust in the air. Seeing Cinderella Castle all lit up and looking at all of the beautiful decorations really gets me in the holiday spirit. Spending time arm in arm with your loved ones underneath the snow on Main Street U.S.A., really creates memories that will last a lifetime.

    Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is such a wonderful event. The hot cocoa, fireworks display, and Mickey’s One Upon a Christmastime Parade make for an unforgettable vacation. Since a limited number of tickets are sold for the party, FastPass+ has not been available for use. I have been to a couple of sold out events and never felt like the wait was too long for the attractions. I have even experienced Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Splash Mountain all in the same night…and I even managed to catch the fireworks and late parade.

    Your Disney Dining Plan credits are valid for the length of stay so if you will be attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party during the visit in which your dining plan is valid, then you will be able to use your credits. I always recommend foregoing a Table-Service meal during the party if you can help it just to allow yourself more time to experience all of the fun that the party has to offer!

    I hope that I have helped to answer your question!  Please come back and see us real soon!
