    We are attending a conference in September and are offered the opportunity to purchase an after 1pm or after 5pm ticket. If purchasing one of these, does that allow us to stay for the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party?

    Hey Howdy Hey Kristin and welcome to planDisney! 

    How exciting it is to have the opportunity to attend a conference close to, if not in, the Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you will have plenty of time to take advantage of these special-priced Theme Park Tickets. While they are super helpful in maximizing your time, they also do come with specific details. Let's review your access if you do purchase them. 

    While these ticket options will allow you access to the parks starting at certain times in the afternoon or evenings during your conference, this access still does come with limitations. During specially ticketed events such as Mickey's Not-So-Scarry Halloween party in Magic Kingdom, these events will still require a special ticket for the party specifically. The tickets you mention will typically not allow access to the party I am sorry to say. Considering the option of tickets, you might enquire if they have options available for discounted tickets to the Halloween party. It never hurts to ask! 

    During your trip, you still have so many other options for attending the parks in the evening. While Disney's Animal Kingdom tends to close earlier, EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios are great experiences at night. Being able to stroll around the World Showcase and relax and enjoy some great food and drinks is a nice way to unwind after a highly engaging conference. You will also be there in time to experience the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. This celebration makes EPCOT the destination you want to be in for all things seasonal food and drinks! 

    I hope you enjoy your conference as well as some time in the parks on your trip later this year. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach back out and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
