    If we make a dining reservation before 3pm is it possible to enter the park early using the Halloween party ?

    Hi there, Paul! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Sounds like you have tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party and I could not be more excited for you! With this special event ticket, you are allowed to access both parks up to three hours before the start of the party. If you would like to visit the parks earlier in the day for a dining reservation or any other reason, a separate valid theme park ticket would be required. There are dining reservations available in Disneyland Park up to an hour before the party starts, so you could most certainly sit down for a meal during the three extra hours and be ready to go by the time the party starts. 

    Or you could enjoy a late lunch in the Downtown Disney District or at one of the restaurants in the Disneyland Resort Hotels before entering the parks. I particularly like Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria and Storytellers Café. If you are interested in an extra special experience with one of the most unique dining atmospheres at the Disneyland Resort, stop into Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel. This place is all sorts of fun and the food and drinks are an experience all on their own! Get there early to grab a table inside as reservations aren't accepted here. Or you can dine on the patio with great views of the pools. 

    I hope this helps. Have a fantastic time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
