    We are attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party in October with a 3 and almost 5 year old. Can you tell us the attractions best suited for them and the best places to view the fireworks display and what time it starts? Thanks.

    Boo to YOU, Linda and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a ghoulishly good time, your little monsters will simply LOVE it! Happy HalloWishes Fireworks is a spectacular display and starts at 10:15 p.m. (subject to change and cancellation) most evenings during the event. I would suggest picking a spot on Main Street, U.S.A. at LEAST 20 minutes before the show. That being said, I have friends who watched from different areas throughout Magic Kingdom Park and enjoyed it (in front of Cinderella Castle, etc.)

    Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade is another “must-do” at the party! The parade is held twice during the party (at 8:30 p.m. and 11:15 p.m.-subject to change). I like to watch the second one as some Guests have already made their way home, but considering you have smaller monsters, the first viewing might be best! I like to watch in Frontierland myself!

    Other than this, take time to enjoy the “extras”, when I attend a Special Event, I rarely take-in many attractions as I am busy trying to experience the most of the party! This includes special Character Meet & Greet opportunities and Trick-or-Treating! Remember that Walt Disney World Resort does have a costume policy in place and it is important to take a moment to make sure that everyone in your ghostly gang is good to go!

    Hope my answer helps you with your plans and please don’t be “afraid” to come and visit us again soon!
