    What is the best time to arrive at MNSHP? Do they do something special at opening? Also, would you recommend eating dinner before or during? Thank you!!

    The best time to arrive at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, Carolina, is right at opening so that you don't miss a single moment of the fun!  There aren't any special shows at the entrance gate like there are at regular park opening.  That said, the festivities inside the park all kick to life right at 7:00 P.M., and continue throughout the evening.  When we visit, my family likes to eat an early dinner so that we don't have to "waste" precious party time eating nutritious dinner food when we could be gobbling up lots of trick-or-treat candy!  Enjoy your time at the party.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
