    Hi ! Leavng 10/3, staying at CSR w/ DD's 15 & 11. Hve MNSSHP tix 10/6 w/ dinnr booked at 5:00 at Kona. Should we try to make dinnr earlr to take advt of park rides or leave as is? Also 10day forecst show t-storms, should we b worried of show gettng can

    Hi, Rosa!  I was just at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this past weekend and just loved it!   The parade is not to be missed and the fireworks are amazing!

    With a ticket to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, you can actually enter the park at 4:00 p.m. even though the party does not officially start until 7:00 p.m.   So if you want to squeeze in as much ride time as possible, you can skip your reservation and get into the park and dive into the fun!

    But if you do this, be sure to make alternate dining arrangements ahead of time.   Dining locations in the Magic Kingdom will be booked at or near capacity, so you might need to use counter service restaurants.  Or, you can try to get your Kona reservation earlier if possible.

    If you keep your reservation as-is, you will still be in the park by 7:00 p.m., the official start time of the party, giving you 5 full hours of Halloween Magic!   So just decide how you want to spend your evening.

    As for the weather, if it is severe, shows and parades may be shortened or cancelled for the safety of everyone, including guests and cast members.   Just take your rain ponchos and make the best of it!   Sending some pixie dust your way for some perfect Disney weather.  Enjoy your vacation and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
