    Hello, My question is, we are arriving in Orlando 10/27-31 and we are going to be attending the Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and we have never been to this event nor at DW at this time and I was wondering what kind of crowds (if any) to expect if any?

    Hi Mila!  Just experienced Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this past Thursday and had a wonderful time!  Be sure and bring your costumes and get ready for a great night in the Magic Kingdom.

    Since you will most likely be attending on Halloween or close to it the crowds will pick up.  Halloween night will be the busiest for the party but also the most exciting and fun with the entire park.  You will find many places to trick or treat through-out the park and also great spots to get your picture taken.  Our favorites are the carriage outside of the Small World attraction or the carriage outside of the Haunted Mansion. 

    The parade is amazing that comes complete with the Headless Horseman riding down Main Street and the grave digger's dog walking along greeting the crowds.  The Halloween fireworks are as wonderful as all other Disney shows and to get a different perspective you might try watching from Fantasyland behind the castle!

    We have not found the parks to be very crowded.  EPCOT has been the busiest with the Food and Wine Festival taking place over there but that is especially during the weekend days and evenings.

    Have a great time!
