What Attractions Stay Open During Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party?

If you’re reading this article, then chances are you’ll be hitting up Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at some point over the next two months! For most visitors, the emphasis is certainly on enjoying all of the special events like the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade or Holiday Wishes, but did you know many of the classic attractions remain open exclusively for party guests? As a matter of fact, a nice perk of the Party is that because it’s an exclusive ticketed event, the lines for these rides are usually minimal.  So if you didn’t get to ride Peter Pan’s flight during the day because lines were 90 minutes long, now’s your chance.  Here’s a list of Magic Kingdom attractions and restaurants that should remain open during your visit.
