Dining Reservations Now Available during Holiday Parties at Magic Kingdom

Summer may have just begun, but here at Walt Disney World Resort, we’re already preparing for my favorite seasons – autumn and Christmas! Reservations open today for table-service dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant, Cinderella’s Royal Table and The Crystal Palace for times during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place select nights August 25 through November 1. And Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party happens select nights November 9 through December 22.

Reservations for the frightfully fun HalloWishes Dessert Party and festive Fireworks Holiday Dessert Party are also now available. The cost for either of these dessert parties is $79 plus tax per adults and $47 plus tax per child.

Reservations for either dining or dessert parties can be made by visiting or by calling 407-WDW-DINE. To make dining or dessert party reservations that take place during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, you must have a valid event ticket for that night.


  • Hello, is there any way that we can manage to get a reservation for Be Our Guest during Disney’s Merry Christmas Party on Nov 9th ?

    I’m taking my parents there, and I want to try and make this surprise for my mother. She always told me she have this dream of visiting the castle … imagine If I could get here to have dinner in it!

    Does Disney fairies still make some wishes come true? hehe, been spamming on the refresh button to find a time available for 6 at Be Our Guest on Nov 9th for like.. 10 days, no luck at all =x
    Gonna keep trying!

  • Wow bummed out went to book Fantasmic and Candlelight for Christmas week and I was told it was not available.

    These events are the highlight of our trip (during my birthday). It would be terrible if these get booked up because I’m too busy to continually try to book or log in here.

  • I would like to know when dining reservations will be available for the Candlelight Processional this December.

  • Update: After much fiddling around on my iPhone, I followed Kathy’s instructions and was finally able to get a dinner reservation at Be Our Guest. Thank you, Kathy!

  • Not a single slot available for dinner at Be Our Guest during Mickey’s Merry Christmas Party dates. Very disappointing!

  • The easiest way to check availability is to go to Disney’s website, click on “Things To Do”, then “All Dining”, put in your date, click Dinner & the number of people in your party. Scroll down to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party & it will show all available times for each restaurant & you can choose which is best. I booked mine yesterday & got Be Our Guest for 2 nights during the party. FYI…the availability does not show up on the My Disney Experience App! Had I not checked the website, I would have missed out. Last I checked, there were still time slots & dates for each of the 3 restaurants. Good luck to everyone! Can’t wait until October!!

  • FYI, some people may not be buying because the website shows it as “Schedule Unavailable” and may be under the assumption they can not purchase the ticket at this time which is not the case.

  • There are dates available for dining at both the Halloween & Christmas parties but each have their own page, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Dining & Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Dining. Go to those pages, under dining-make reservations, instead of the restaurant page. Similar to the Candlelight Processional (in past years, as it’s not open yet for this year), you go to that page & choose a restaurant then check for times. Hope this helps.

  • Just FYI guys, while the post says “Reservations open today for table-service dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant … during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party,” reservations for October opened (and as far as I know were filled up) in May.

  • Hmm… website is showing dinner at Crystal Palace as ending at 6PM on our party day (October 24), and won’t allow reservations after that. Is it better to call? Also, will there be counter service options for the parties still? Thank you!

  • So tempted to do Cinderella’s Castle for our honeymoon trip! But I think we want to spend as much time at the Halloween Party as possible. We did the Christmas party two years ago (right before my fiance had to go to basic training for the Air Force) and it was amazing!
