    Looking forward to a Not So Scary party soon. I am an AP and the people coming with me are not. Can I pick up wristbands for other people in my group earlier in the day? Could they then use any Magic Kingdom entrance and skip the big line at 4 pm? Thanks!

    Boo-To-You, Andrew!  Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this spooktacular question!

    It's officially spooky season at Walt Disney World ResortMickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is currently taking place on select nights at Magic Kingdom Park, and from what I've heard so far about this year's event, it sounds like a frightfully fun time!  I'm planning to attend the party later this season with some of my fellow planDisney panelists.  We're busy planning our costumes and looking over the Foodie Guide to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2023 to decide on our must-have treats.  I can't wait to try the Witches Cold Brew!

    It's very thoughtful of you to offer to pick up the party wristbands for the other Guests in your group, but unfortunately, that won't be possible.  Cast Members can only distribute one wristband per Guest when each person scans in for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  On party evenings, Magic Kingdom Park leaves a few gates open from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for Guests visiting with regular theme park tickets.  They will open a separate set of gates at 4:00 p.m. for Guests arriving for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  Your friends will need to scan in at the Magic Kingdom Park gates when they arrive, and if they don't have a regular daytime ticket, they will need to enter through one of the lines designated for party Guests.  Once they have scanned in, they can pick up a party wristband from one of the Cast Members stationed just inside the park gates.

    Many Guests arrive for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party right around 4:00 p.m., but in my experience, entering the park is always an efficient process that moves along quite quickly.  There will be several entrance gates open for Guests arriving for the party, and there will be lots of Cast Members distributing wristbands.  Your group will be inside Magic Kingdom Park and ready for a ghoulishly good time faster than you can say, "Boo-To-You!"

    As you get ready for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, be sure to check out our planDisney top tips for this event, and if you have any other questions, please visit us again.  Happy Halloween!
