    We are considering attending the Halloween party. I currently have an ADR for Chef Mickey's (before the party). I am thinking about switching ADR to a restaurant in the Magic Kingdom because I am heard you are able to get into the party early?

    Hi there, Jonathon!
    Thanks for stopping by to visit with the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Be sure to pack your Halloween costume and the largest trick-or-treat bag you can find! You'll leave the party loaded with all sorts of treats!

    In the past, guests with tickets to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party have been allowed to enter the Magic Kingdom as early as 4pm. The party doesn't officially begin until around 7pm, so guests were able to enjoy the fall decorations and attractions and shows. FastPass+ isn't available during the Halloween Party unless you have a theme park ticket of the Magic Kingdom or an Annual Pass, but once the party begins the crowds will thin out and you'll be able to enjoy the attractions and shows with a minimal wait. 
    When it comes to your Advanced Dining Reservation at Chef Mickey's, I would suggest to keep that dining reservation, if possible, as it is a very popular character dining experience that is sometimes difficult to secure. If you've never experienced Chef Mickey's before, this is the perfect time. Maybe you can change your ADR time at Chef Mickey's to an earlier time so that you can get to the party earlier, if an early entrance time is offered for the party. Just keep checking the Disney website or your My Disney Experience app to see if additional times become available. Guests change their dining plans often and especially closer to their travel date.

    Jonathon, I hope this helps. If you have more questions, please stop by and visit with us again soon!
