    My husband and I are visiting WDW from October 26th - November 2nd this year. We're booked in to Beach Club, but I would like to know do the Extended Evening Hours run as usual during the MNSSHP season, otherwise is it worth changing to a moderate?

    Hello Laura!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Halloween is a "spook"tacular time of year to visit with so many activities going on both inside and outside of the parks!  Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place on select evenings from August through October at Magic Kingdom Park.  At this special-ticketed event, you'll find trick-or-treating, seasonal entertainment, and some rare character sightings.  It's a bibbidi-bobbidi-BOOtiful way to spend the evening!  

    Of course, a great perk of staying at a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort in the Disney Resort Collection is Extended Evening Hours available on select nights and in select parks.  The schedule for Extended Evening Hours isn't typically released until 60 days ahead of your arrival and can be found listed with the theme park hours on the Walt Disney World Resort website.  While it's hard to predict which nights and parks may have extended hours, it's a good bet that Extended Evening Hours will not be available at Magic Kingdom on the same nights as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  However, you may find extended hours available at another park on those nights and/or at Magic Kingdom on a night when a party is not scheduled.  Once the hours are posted, you can start planning your days with a bit more detail and decide if you'd like to try and modify your resort choice at that time.

    Laura, I hope you choose to stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort as I think there is so much to love about this resort full of seaside charm in addition to the Extended Evening Hours benefit.  Stormalong Bay is among the best pools at Walt Disney World Resort with nearly 3 acres of fun!  It's also an easy walk to EPCOT and offers both convenient water transportation or a walking path to Disney's Hollywood Studios, making this an incredibly popular destination.  In addition, you'll find great dining in and near Beach Club.  Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast is a character dining experience featuring a breakfast buffet and some of your favorite characters at Cape May Café.  One of my favorite "hidden gems" is nearby at Disney's Yacht Club Resort - Ale & Compass Restaurant.  The New England Seafood Pot Pie is delicious!  

    Whether you choose to remain at Beach Club or explore another resort, I hope you enjoy a wonderful visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!  If you have any other planning questions, please stop by to see us again here at planDisney - we're all ears!
