    Hi there! I'll be a 1st timer in October for our anniversary, which is Halloween. How quickly do the Party tickets usually sell out for 10/31, as I imagine it is rather popular for that event and I want to ensure we get our tickets. Thanks!

    There is something extra fun about answering a question for a first-time visitor to the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for bringing your question to planDisney, Jennifer! 

    Congratulations on your upcoming anniversary! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party sounds like the most incredible way to celebrate your special day! From Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade to trick-or-treating around Magic Kingdom Park, you are going to have such an amazing visit!

    You are correct, the Halloween party is incredibly popular! Especially on Halloween night. Traditionally, the first night of the party (in August) and Halloween night are usually two of the first dates to sell out. But you came to the right place for some good advice on securing your tickets.

    Last year, Guests with existing reservations could purchase party tickets before the general public. Those advance tickets went on sale on April 27, 2023. Tickets for the general public went on sale a few days later on May 1, 2023. So, my best advice for being one of the first to secure tickets would be to have an existing reservation and purchase your tickets on the first day that tickets become available! Ticket sale dates will be announced on the Walt Disney World Resort website and on the Disney Parks Blog! My guess is that we should be hearing some news about the spooky party very soon!

    Jennifer, an important party tip is that you can get into Magic Kingdom Park using your party ticket before the event begins! Pary ticketholders can traditionally enter the park at 4:00 PM even though the party doesn’t begin until 7:00 PM. I always encourage Guests to take advantage of that great party perk! Also, since this is your first visit, I’ve linked a special video that I filmed with my co-planDisney panelist, Elaine! The video is filled with “first-timer” tips!

    Of course, you and your special someone should also request a “First Time Visit” and “Anniversary” button upon your arrival! These complimentary buttons can be picked up at your resort hotel or in any of the four Disney Parks!

    Dreams do come true!
