    My family (2adults, 2 kids) is doing Alice in Wonderland themed costumes for the MNSSHP next week. We wanted to arrive early like 4 or 5 to enjoy some rides first, we have park tickets for the day. Will the adults be able to enter in costume early?

    Boo to You, Beth. Well, it looks like great minds think alike! My 10 year old daughter is dressing as the Queen of Hearts and I will be Alice in Wonderland when we run the Happy Haunted 5k at Walt Disney World later this month. I figured there was nothing more motivating than the "Queen" chasing after me while shouting "Off with her head!" during the race!

    One of my favorite suggestions for guests looking to save some money during their Fall Walt Disney World vacation is to save your full day tickets for a time when you can enjoy a theme park ALL day long. Then, spend the morning and early afternoon hours exploring your resort, fitting in a swim break and maybe even a nap, before attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party later that same evening.

    A less commonly known tidbit is that you can typically enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4pm on the day of your attendance at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! This is due to the fact that although the number of guests are limited for this special event, it would create some slow down at the entrance if everyone showed up right at the official party kick off time of 7pm. All party-goers are more than welcome to arrive and remain in costume anytime starting at 4pm!

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted trip this Fall! Please feel free to send more questions my way!
