    We are hoping to go to Orlando in October. When does the Not so scary party schedule come out? I know it’s not every night. Is it on designated nights of the week? Also I was told that you can enter the park as early as at 4pm is this true? Thank you

    Hi Christina!

    October is a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World Resort! Not only is the Magic Kingdom decorated with Autumn touches, but Epcot is hosting the International Food and Wine Festival. It's a double win!

    Generally, dates for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are announced around the first week of April each year. Event tickets usually go on sale at the same time. There are usually a couple of parties per week. The parties will officially start at 7pm, but your ticket should allow you admission to the park earlier in the afternoon.

    Keep in mind that the most popular party dates often sell out in advance. Be sure to grab your first choice of dates early! The Disney Parks Blog is a great place to keep an eye on for the latest announcements on party dates, event details and even Halloween foodie treats!

    Over in Epcot, the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival will be in full swing as well. In 2020, the festival will celebrate its 25th Anniversary. I can't wait to see what special treats and events might be at this year's festival. Of course, the food booths and outdoor kitchens are pretty special themselves, so don't miss them!

    I hope you have a wonderful Fall trip!
