    We have kids 3 & 5 going and planning on attending the Not So Scary Halloween Party, but trying to decide which park to visit the morning of the party? Will go back to rest before the evening begins, but not sure which park is not so exhausting?

    My advice to you would be to altogether skip going to a theme park on the morning of the party, especially since your kiddos are so young. 

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party won't even begin until 7 pm and it will continue until midnight.  If you plan to stay for all, or most of the party it will certainly make for a late night and you'll want to be sure your kids are well rested for the big event.  I know it's tempting to cram as much fun and excitement you can into your vacation, but doing so (especially in the heat and humidity) is a sure way to exhaust all the members of your party, and that's never fun.

    You might consider spending the day by your resort pool instead of heading to a park.  Mid-afternoon naps are a good idea too. 

    If you insist on going to a park I really don't think any one in particular is less exhausting than the other.  Touring at a slower pace and attempting to visit just a few attractions will be the best way to conserve energy and prepare for an exciting night.

    Honestly, there are enough fun and surprises in store during the Halloween Party that you shouldn't feel the need to plan too much more for that day.  Have a spooktacular time!
