    Hi we coming for our first visit in October 24 and would love to what’s happing then for extras to book. When is this information usually released?

    Greetings Pippa! You are a great planner! Taking the time to prepare for your visit, well in advance, is an important key to a successful Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    With your visit planned for October 2024, the biggest event of the season is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! This spooktacularly special ticketed event is held on select nights in Magic Kingdom Park! It is one of my favorite events to attend at the Walt Disney World Resort! The park is decorated for Halloween, the characters are dressed in their costumes, Guests may dress in costumes, and there is trick-or-treating through the park for Guests of all ages! And if that isn’t enough to get you into the spirit of the season, there is also Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade which kicks off with the Headless Horseman making his ride down Main Street, U.S.A.! That moment is not to be missed! 

    Dates and ticket sales for the 2023 Halloween party were just released about a month ago. So, I anticipate dates and tickets for the 2024 party will be announced in April 2024. Here is a PRO TIP for you…Over the past two years, Guests with an existing Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation have been able to purchase their tickets a few days prior to Guests staying at hotels off-property. October is a very popular month for the party. Having a few extra days to purchase your tickets before the general public is very helpful!

    Pippa, because you got me into the Halloween spirit, I am going to share another treat with you! Guests with tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are usually allowed to enter Magic Kingdom Park at 4:00 PM even though the party doesn’t officially begin until 7:00 PM! That is three extra magical hours in the park! I always encourage Guests to take advantage of that party perk!

    Come on back to planDisney! We’re happy to provide any information to make your visit magical!

    Happy Planning!
