    If we already have a general admission ticket to Magic Kingdom, do we need to buy an additional ticket for the Not So Scary Mickey Mouse Halloween event?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Abby! Halloween time at the Walt Disney World Resort includes all sorts of spook-tacular fun. My family and I are already counting down the days until our fall trip and cannot wait for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! It's one of the best events all year, in my opinion!

    You will need to purchase separate admission for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. On the nights that feature this party at Magic Kingdom, guests with general admission get to enjoy the park until 7:00 p.m. at which time the park is reserved for the party. When my family and I attend, we purchase park tickets for all but the day we plan to attend the party, because we plan to spend that day at our resort or at Disney Springs and then use our party tickets to spend the evening at Magic Kingdom. Typically, those with Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party tickets can begin entering the park around 4:00 p.m., although other guests are still there at that time and the party doesn't officially kick off until 7:00 p.m.

    You'll not want to miss this fun night, Abby. While the Halloween decorations will be up all day, and you can certainly enjoy a fun and festive Halloween atmosphere with regular tickets during the day, it isn't until that night that the big Boo-To-You Halloween Parade takes place, trick-or-treating, special character Meet and Greets (my kids can't wait to meet Jack Skellington and Sally!), the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular show, the Happy HalloWishes Fireworks, and so much more! I do hope you'll be able to attend during your trip, Abby!

    Have so much fun planning!
