    Hey. I’m travelling from the UK and seen that magic kingdom is fully reserved on the 31st. Does this mean I can’t visit that park at all on that day. As was looking to do Hollywood studios and magic kingdom with the park hopper ticket. Any help? Thank You

    Hi Edmund, welcome to planDisney!

    Halloween season has already begun at Walt Disney World Resort. At Magic Kingdom Park, pre-order a taste of the season by using the My Disney Experience mobile app to place a mobile food and beverage order for a Mickey Pumpkin Apple or a Minnie Halloween Cupcake from the Main Street Confectionery. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, I enjoyed a Halloween Lunch Box Tart from Woody's Lunch Box last Halloween and am hoping it makes an appearance again this year. Candy corn is my favorite vegetable.  

    Valid admission, a theme park reservation for each park day, and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card) are currently required for theme park entry. The theme park reservation availability calendar currently shows that Magic Kingdom Park is not available on Monday, October 31. It's also important to note that Magic Kingdom Park closes at 6:00 p.m. that day due to the final Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party of the season. The Halloween party is a special event that requires a separate ticket.

    If you have a theme park reservation and enter Disney's Hollywood Studios first on October 31, Edmund, you should be able to use your ticket with the Park Hopper Option to "hop" to Magic Kingdom after park hopping hours begin at 2:00 p.m. On rare occasions, theme parks may fill to capacity and be temporarily closed for park hopping. If that's the case, you'll receive a push notification from your My Disney Experience mobile app. Based on my personal experience (see below), I don't think you have anything to worry about. You may even be able to snag a Magic Kingdom theme park reservation, after all. 

    Last year, theme park reservations for Magic Kingdom Park were unavailable for Halloween by the time my family purchased our park tickets. We made theme park reservations for Disney's Hollywood Studios, instead. Availability for Magic Kingdom Park appeared once or twice before our visit, but we chose to stick with Disney's Hollywood Studios and were not disappointed. My family of six Disney bounded as Toy Story characters and spent the day playing big in Toy Story Land and joining the Resistance in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. We, too, had tickets with the Park Hopper Option and were able to park hop over to Magic Kingdom after park hopping hours began at 2:00 p.m. We rode a couple of our must-do attractions, including Pirates of the Caribbean, and enjoyed a spooktacular snack before the park closed. 

    I hope you have a boo-tiful Halloween full of planDisney tricks and delicious treats.

    Choose magic,
