Default Moonlight Magic and FP+ Question

Hi Everyone!!

We have reservations to attend Moonlight magic on January 21 in AK. We don't plan on using a day from our hopper passes, but do plan on entering the park at 6pm. It is our first one so I had a few questions.

- Are you able to use the food voucher at anytime? Or just once the party offically starts?
- If we made FP reservations for between 6 pm and 8 pm, will we be able to use them if we aren't using a park day?
- The email states that there is "Early Event check in at the Vacation Planning Booth at the entrance of Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park will open at 12:00 PM.", do anyone know if this will be inside or outside of the park gates?
- Do you have any tips/recommendations for first timers?

We are very excited, this is the first time we have a trip that lines up with a Moonlight magic event!

Thank you!!

FastPass+ selections may only be reserved using valid theme park admission linked to a My Disney Experience account. Theme park admission must be used at the Main Entrance touchpoints for FastPass+ selections to be valid.

It's will be one (hard to find) ticket window OUTSIDE of the park.
In park check in locations will not be available until closer to 6 pm.

Curious, what food voucher? In the party description I see them mentioning "refreshments" but nothing about a food voucher. Did I just miss seeing that listed?

They issue meal vouchers (1 per guest) that you can redeem at any open quick service restaurant for an entree and non-alcoholic beverage.

They started using the meal vouchers with the Epcot MM event back in 2018.

At the Epcot event, it was just certain QS restaurants, not all of them. If I remember correctly it was just the one in the Land, Electric umbrella, UK Fish and Chips window and a couple of carts in WS.

At each MM event, the QS voucher could only be used at select locations.

As has been stated, you must have a valid theme park admission to be available to book a FP, AND you must use that admission at the park to use that FP.

If you are not planning on using a park admission on this day, you can't use FP, and DO NOT scan you MB when entering the park.

That's because most of the World Showcase is not open during the MM Event. Prior to park closing, the meal voucher could be used in many locations around the World Showcase.
