    Luv the panel! I have an ADR at 7:30p in MK during MNSSHP, if I enter the park early will I be able to stay for my ADR? Or will I be required to leave the park at 7pm. I don't have hard tickets for the party, I only have regular park tickets for that day.

    The park closes to day guests at 7 pm on Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party days, Xavier.  As part of the closure, Cast Members actually "sweep" the park and direct non-party goers towards the exit.  In this case, your dining reservation occurs thirty minutes too late.  If your reservation was for 7:00, you'd be permitted to enter the restaurant at park closing and dine to your heart's content.  My concern is that when Cast Members come around to clear out day guests, your late dining reservation might not be a valid reason to stay for a party that other guests have paid to attend.  I'd hate to see you "lose" your reservation.  Is it possible to obtain an earlier reservation time?  If not, I would probably opt to dine elsewhere, if it were me, so as not to risk it.  I hope that helps!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
