  • Three trips planned next year and of course none will coincide. I could move up our October dates, but not sure I’m willing to do early October just to get into MM.

    • My June dates didn’t correspond with any Moonlight Magic this time around.
      But I appreciate Disney releasing these dates earlier than in the past. Makes planning easier.

  • We’ve got a family trip planned next year with arrival on September 6th, so we’ll arrive early enough for a brief nap and then head to DHS for the party!

  • First time we will be there for one of these events. Very excited

  • Doesn’t match my dates :'(

  • Do we have to call Member Services to reserve tickets, or can we do it online?

    • Reservations can only be made via the Disney Vacation Club website.

  • I really liked the EPCOT Moonlight Magic in August of 2018 but the Animal Kingdom one in August of 2019 was terrible. They didn’t have any magnets like the Figment one they had for Epcot and there was very limited Moonlight Magic merch for purchase. I don’t know how anyone can eat that late at night! I gave away my food tickets and didn’t even eat any other free food.

    • Historically I believe it has been 9am, EST.

  • Can I book more than one event?

    • Yes! – There is no limit to the amount of events you can attend. The biggest difficulty becomes securing your spot.

  • I am a DVC member and have a reservation during the the during the January Moonlight event. I booked at Old Key West and my mom, brother and nieces have a reservation too but aren’t members. We have everything linked up will they allow them to come? I just don’t know how to tell my kids their cousins can’t make it. I also wasn’t sure if my husband and I count as one member or two.

    • Hey Melissa – Yes! Everyone linked to your reservation will be able to attend. Good luck with the reservation process!
