    We are looking into getting tickets for a night at the "NOT SO SCARY HALLOWEEN PARTY" what time does the park close for not party guests and reopen for event ticket holders? if we are already in the park do we have to leave and reenter?

    Hi, Whitney!  The theme park remains open the entire transition time, so if you decide to go into the park that day using a regular ticket, you do not have to leave and re-enter.  There will be locations inside the theme park where you can exchange your tickets for the wristbands that will allow you to enjoy the Halloween party festivities.  

    The park closes to day guests at 7 PM, which is when the Halloween party begins.  It is a very organized changeover to party events, with cast members setting up trick or treat stations and getting their party face on as other cast members are ushering out day guests.  

    This is one of my all time favorite events at Walt Disney World, and I hope your family has a wonderful time!
