    Our Disney trip is in October. Mickey's-not-so-scary party is a must! Can we go to a different park during the day and purchase the Not-So-Scary tickets for the evening, or must we stay at Magic Kingdom for that one day. We don't have park hopper!

    Hi Kathryn! I couldn’t agree more! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a MUST for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I’m glad you brought your question to planDisney!

    Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party begins at 7:00 PM. However, party ticketholders can enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:00 PM! You don’t need to purchase an additional ticket to spend your day at Magic Kingdom Park. Your party ticket will allow you to enter Magic Kingdom Park at 4:00 PM (or later), but not earlier in the day.

    Kathryn, you are welcome to purchase an admission ticket to visit any of the Disney Parks on the same day that you’ll be visiting Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. As a frequent party-goer, I will offer this PRO TIP…My family enjoys arriving early for the party (4:00 PM) and staying until the party is over at midnight. The party makes for a late night. We usually choose to spend that day sleeping in and enjoying the resort. We’ll even take an afternoon nap! Then we make our way over to Magic Kingdom Park for an evening of frightful fun at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

    One of my favorite parts of the Halloween party is meeting characters that you won't normally see at Magic Kingdom Park! For example, in previous years, including the 2023 Halloween party, Guests could meet all of the Seven Dwarfs! This is my favorite character meet-and-greet! Characters are subject to change, so check out details of the party once additional details are announced. 

    Dreams do come true!
