    will be at DW first week of Sept. Not planning to go to MNSSHP - if at MK that day what time do we need to leave without tix to MNSSHP? Is MK busier on those days or lighter until aft when people arrive for the party? Trying to get itinerary planned.THX

    Hi Rhonda,

    Parties such as Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party tend to start at 7pm, sometimes things do change so always check in the park the day you're there, so only those guests with party tickets are allowed to remain in the park after that time. You will find Cast Members (Disney employees) checking for wrist bands or appropriate party ID after that time.

    For the second part of your question I would definitely say that the parks tend to be quieter on party days. If I was there visiting and knew that the Magic Kingdom closed early one day during my stay due to a party I would not go there on that day, I would visit another park where I could get my "moneys worth" with a full park day! So if you're not worried about a full park day, viewing the fireworks or you're able to visit the MK on several days during your trip then a party day would be a great day to go as the crowds should be smaller.

    Have a great trip,
