    Are you able to purchase Genie+ if you only have a special event ticket? If we are able to enter the park at 4pm and the party doesn’t start until 7pm can we purchase Genie+ and stack until the party starts?

    Hi Megan, welcome to planDisney!

    Special events like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party are great ways to plus a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Whether walking through a not-so-spooky fog or a snowfall on Main Street, U.S.A., Magic Kingdom Park immerses you in magical, seasonal storytelling.

    Guests with special event tickets are ineligible to purchase Disney Genie+ service on their event day, Megan. Attraction stacking will come naturally during the party with lower crowds and wait times for popular attractions. It's a smart plan to arrive as soon as your ticket allows, though, and my best tip for your bonus hours is to experience classic entertainment and attractions that are not available during the party such as Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress and Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room.

    It's also a good idea to fuel up with some food fuel before the sugar rush. Advance reservations for dining can be made online 60 days in advance. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can book for their entire length of stay 60 days before check-in. My family and I pre-partied at Steakhouse 71 in Disney's Contemporary Resort before Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party last fall, which is a convenient 10-minute walk from the entrance of Magic Kingdom Park.
