    Hi! We booked dinner at MNSHP-Cinderella’s Castle because we could not find any other openings to dine at the Castle. It’s scheduled for 10/4/19 at 8:55pm. Will we be missing anything of the Party or be able to see anything from the Castle?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melanie!

    For so many guests, dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table is the single must-do, top priority thing that they have to experience when they're on vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, so I'm so excited to hear that you've snagged a reservation for your upcoming trip. I think it's a great idea to book your dinner during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and with some smart scheduling, you can still make time to see a lot of the things you'd like to see.

    The great thing about Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is that most of the special things that can only be seen there, like Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade, happen multiple times in the evening for guests who want to see and do as much as they can. Last year, the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular had showtimes as early as 7:40 p.m., so that would be a great show to try and see before dinner. Speaking of your royal meal, there isn't really a view of any of the entertainment or the fireworks from inside Cinderella Castle, so you might want to keep that in mind when you're planning your evening. There is usually only one fireworks show per night and it typically happens at 10:15 p.m., so make sure to keep an eye on the time while you're eating if the new fireworks spectacular at this year's Party is a must-see event for your family this year. We don't yet know the exact schedule of events for this year's Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and times and availability are subject to change so be sure to pick up a map as soon as you get to Magic Kingdom Park for all the details.

    Have a magical day, Melanie!
