    Heading to Disney 10/6! On 10/7 we have ADR at Crystal Palace at 840. Park is open 9am-1am. How early can we enter? Is it bad that we will miss opening? We will also be at MK on 10/10. We are not staying for MNSSHP, will we see some of it from 4-7pm?

    Hi Andrea!  I would suggest arriving at Magic Kingdom for 8:00 a.m.  This will give you time to stroll casually down Main Street U.S.A. and take some nice pictures - including in front of the castle.  I wouldn't worry about missing the opening.  To me, being in the park before it opens is much more special!

    As far as being in the park for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, although guests attending the party can enter earlier than 7:00 p.m. at times, the party itself will not begin until 7:00.  You'll be asked to exit the park at 7:00 if you're not wearing a wristband so the party can begin.  If you have an opportunity to purchase a ticket for the party, I would highly recommend it.  It's a super fun party!  Have a great vacation!
