    Bought our tickets to the MNSSHP on Sept 18th, what time do the fireworks start? Best place to see? Afraid we will be too tired to stay for them, it is our first day and we have to be at the airport at 4 am!! But what a great way to start our vacation.

    Hi Jone! 

    You are right, this is a great party to start off your vacation!  The fireworks will be at 9:30 that night, with parades at 8:15 and 10:30.  So, my suggestion would be to take a mid-afternoon nap when you get to your resort so you can kick off the vacation by staying at Magic Kingdom until they kick you out at midnight! 

    The Halloween Party is so much fun, and you definitely don't want to be tired during it.  Try taking a nap and then hitting Magic Kingdom refreshed and ready to party!  They candy at the trick or treat stations should help give you a sugar boost to make it through the night.  And a little tip:  Usually they will let people who have party tickets enter Magic Kingdom around 4 p.m., even though the party starts at 7.  You may ask a cast member when you get to Disney, but I have always done this in the past!  That will give you three extra hours to celebrate!

    I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you have any other questions leading up to your trip!
