    Will Big Thunder Mountain be open during MNSSHP this year? I don't see it in the list of attractions that will be open.

    Hey, Lisa! Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is high on my family's must-do list each fall. It simply does not feel like fall until we have joined all the other Foolish Mortals to watch The Headless Horseman ride up Main Street, U.S.A. Of course, we do also love discovering the new treats at all of the Trick or Treat Stations!

    While there are so many party-specific activities going on throughout the evening, there are many attractions and shows that remain open for partygoers. The list of open attractions does seem to be missing your favorite one! However, keep an eye on that list in the coming months as it could change. I do remember going on quick rides through the wild west on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad during our last few visits to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, so I do hope it continues its run this year.

    In my experience, guests holding tickets for the party have been welcomed to enter Magic Kingdom Park early, usually around 4:00 p.m. You could head to the park early that day and hop on the wildest ride in the wilderness before the party even begins. If you link your party ticket to your My Disney Experience account and do not plan to make FastPass+ selections earlier in the day with your regular theme park tickets, you can make FastPass+ selections at Magic Kingdom Park with the party ticket for the time period before the party begins. When we attended Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this past year, we did just that and were able to experience our three favorite attractions with FastPass+ before the party began. It made for quite a magical Disney day!

    Thanks for stopping by, Lisa! Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventure this fall.
