    If you buy a ticket for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween 2022, how will rides and Genie+ work that evening? If you don't buy a park ticket that day can you still get Genie+ for the Halloween event (from 4pm to end)?

    Welcome to James, to planDisney!

    I am your host, your ghost host. We are less than halfway to Halloween, which means that spooky season is on its way. Soon you will be able to make final arrangements to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Mickey and his pals are planning a hauntingly good time for all who attend, including some spook-tacular nighttime entertainment. 

    Don’t lose your head over seeing the Headless Horseman before the start of Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade. You will see Mickey and Minnie all dressed up for the festivities. You may even see a few hitchhiking ghosts trying to follow you home. New this year is Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular! A fiendish, frenzy of fireworks featuring your favorite Disney villains. This pyrotechnic display is only shown during this event held on select nights from August 12 through October 31, 2022. 

    If you are a Guest that has purchased a ticket for this special event, you can enter the Magic Kingdom, before the party starts, as early as 4:00 PM. Genie+ only works for Guests with valid theme park admission and park pass reservation. A park pass reservation is not needed to attend the party because the spirits have made arrangements for all party guests to have a frightfully good time. Right now, we do not know if Guests attending the party will be able to make Genie+ selections, without a valid theme park ticket, during the early entry hours from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  Any Guest with a ticket that includes the Park Hopper Option would be able to make Genie+ selections until the park closes at 6:00 PM. Stay tuned to the My Disney Experience app or the Disney Parks Blog for updates.

    The spirits are shy, so only a limited number of tickets are available for each event. Due to the number of Guests in attendance, wait times for rides are considerably less than during the day. Genie+ will not be available during the party. You will find that you will be able to almost walk right on the select rides and attractions operating during the event. You may find that some attractions may have a spell cast giving them a Halloween twist. Tickets go on sale for Guests of Disney Resorts Collection Hotels on May 12th, all other Guests will be able to purchase tickets on May 18, 2022. 

    Let’s boo this,
