    I'm visiting WDW this September. As Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is held on select nights, I'm wondering if the regular afternoon parade (Festival of Fantasy) und fireworks show (Happily Ever After) is presented during that time?

    Welcome to planDisney, Peter. Walt Disney World in September is a wonder, the summer crowds and heat are cooling down, and the Halloween-themed decor is a delight to behold - who doesn't love a Mickey Pumpkin? 

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is running on 13 evenings during September - you can check the schedule to see how this coincides with your trip. On such dates, Guests holding Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party Tickets can enter Magic Kingdom Park after 4 pm. You'll need a standard valid ticket and Park Pass Reservation to enter before 4 pm. Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular, a frightfully fun fireworks display, replaces Happily Ever After on the evenings of the Party. Although the confirmed timings of the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade for September are yet to be released, at the moment it runs twice a day, at 12 and 3 pm. I envisage this remaining consistent during your time at Walt Disney World.

    If you are not a ticket holder for the special event, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and would like to enjoy a full day at Magic Kingdom Park, you may like to book a Park Pass Reservation for another date when no Party event is scheduled.  In the meantime, you could enjoy a day at EPCOT, where the International Food & Wine Festival will be in full swing. The variety of fun choices at Walt Disney World means you can enjoy many diverse and unique magical days on your adventure!

    Peter, I hope this information helps, and please accept all my best wishes for an enchanting trip to Walt Disney World. I would love to help if you need anything further, Louise.
