I have read that purchasing a ticket to this event gets you into the park at 4pm. Are other attractions at Magic Kingdom open during the party/ parade? Can we explore all of Magic Kingdom until closing? Is the castle open? Are there characters out in other areas to meet?
This is the first time at Disney for our family. We have three teenagers but they are not that into rides but want to experience the magic of Disney. Would attending this event be enough?
We will be in Orlando for 9 days. We were planning 2 days at Universal ( our kids are super excited about Harry Potter), one day at SeaWorld and one day at Disney and relaxing and other smaller attractions the other days.
We are considering going to the Mickey Party and then if they really wanted we could do another Disney day.
We would love any tips you may have!
