    Hi, we are coming to Disney this October and am so excited! I have just made reservations for Dinner with Cinderella but it is for 31/10. Dinner is at 19.30 - will we need a ticket to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party to be in the park?

    Hi, Emma!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel; we're so glad you sent this question!

    Your dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table is going to be so magical!

    Guests who are dining with an Advanced Dining Reservation are asked to arrive five minutes prior to reservation time, and those dining with Her Royal Highness should be sure to allow a little extra time to get to Cinderella Castle, especially on a busy night.

    You have made the perfect plan for your dinner on Halloween! Spend some time in the afternoon/early evening in Magic Kingdom so that you are already inside the park prior to its closing, getting to Fantasyland by 7:10/7:15.

    As guests of Magic Kingdom finish up a meal or a shopping transaction as the park closes and a ticketed event begins, Cast Members are happy to allow them to do so. However, they need a Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket to enter MK after 7 and are not allowed to enter any attractions after that time without a MNNSHP ticket.

    Because this party is always so popular, especially on Halloween, I would have advised you to be inside MK gates no later than 45 minutes prior to your dining reservation anyway, to stop for some spectacular, seasonal photos and linger over very special sights on your way to Cinderella Castle. If you are in the park earlier, even better. Look for PhotoPass Photographers to capture photos of your evening as you head to dinner, too. Enjoy!
