The park is open only to those guests who purchase the party tickets. There is a bit of a jam entering the park since it is only open 7pm-12am, but you can enter as early as 4pm with your party tickets to avoid the rush. We received event wristbands upon entering the two times my family attended the party and then the entire Magic Kingdom is open for your enjoyment. If you are going for the rides then you will luck out because there is no wait for majority of the rides once the party begins depending on the date of your party. At any date, your wait should not exceed 15 minutes for any given ride. You will find all the Disney Characters in their festive attire for the party (think loud holiday sweaters), as well as many party goers! There will be many more characters out to meet, greet, and take pictures and for autographs. You can expect to see all of the major Disney sport wristbands characters as well as Santa Claus Mrs. Claus, Scrooge McDuck- who is extremely rare during the rest of the year! What you do before and after the date destination can make or break the date, so mentally walk through the date ahead of time to be sure you have covered how you will get there - who will drive home or will you cab it?

BEIJING -- Chinese researchers have found a major quantitative trait locus (QTL) that can be used to cultivate high-manganese, low-cadmium rice, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) said in a statement Tuesday.
According to Qian Qian, chief expert and researcher in the field at CAAS, people often have an inadequate intake of manganese, an essential mineral in bone formation and the digestion of cholesterol, carbohydrates and protein.
Although the manganese content in rice grains can be increased via biological enhancement, this also increases the content of cadmium, a poisonous heavy metal, making the control of the elements in rice a major challenge, he said.
Researchers created a strain combined with a high-manganese strain and a low-manganese strain, and detected a major QTL via a high-density genetic map.
They found that the QTL contained a gene that regulated and controlled the absorption of manganese and had a significant drop in cadmium, improving the root system capability of absorbing manganese.
The research was subsidized by the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
