    Can you get Fast Passes to the extra hours “not so scary Halloween party”?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jason!

    Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is definitely one of my favorite annual events at Walt Disney World Resort. While FastPass+ reservations are not available during this special event, in my experience they haven’t really been necessary. With a limited number of tickets sold for the Party, your wait times for some of your favorite Magic Kingdom Park attractions will typically be much lower than you would experience during the day.

    Although the Party doesn’t officially get underway until 7 p.m., with your Party ticket, you may enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4 p.m. I know some people have had success booking FastPass+ reservations during that 4-7 p.m. window (or up until the official Park closing time for day Guests), but that will only be an option if you have not made FastPass+ reservations for another Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park that day. 

    A couple of tips to help you get the most out of your Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party experience, Jason: first of all, stick around for the second viewing of Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade and enjoy the rides and attractions during the first Parade. You may also do the same for the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular. Secondly, I would recommend arriving at Magic Kingdom Park early if there’s a particular Character you would like to meet. The last time my family and I attended the Party, there was a long wait to meet Jack Skellington and Sally, but we were in line well before most. And thirdly, if you plan to enjoy a Table Service meal for dinner, I would recommend making your reservation no later than 5:30 p.m. so you’ll be finished in time for the official Party start time.

    Hopefully these tips will help you make the most out of your spooktacular visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Jason! Please let us know if there are any additional tips or recommendations we can provide.
