    With MNSSHP dates released, do you know whether extra hours for MK will continue to be on Wednesday nights. In October the party dates are Tuesday 1st and Thursday 3rd. Will they keep the late night at MK on Wednesday 2nd or move it to HS?

    Hi there, Amanda. Welcome to our little corner of the internet. We're so happy you found us!

    Okay. So I looked into my mirror and said, "Magic Mirror, on the wall, what will the hours be for Extended Evening Theme Park Entry in October 2024?" Unfortunately, I didn't get an answer. Although he did say that someone named Amanda was the fairest of them all. Good to know, but not helpful with the question at hand.

    So I moved on to asking Madame Leota from the Haunted Mansion. She heard me and called out, "Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat; call in the extended hours, wherever they’re at." She even asked the spirits to rap on a table and demanded it was time to respond. You see, she wanted to get an answer from somewhere beyond. And you know what? I did hear the rapping on the table, which means they know, but unfortunately, they wouldn't share. I have a sneaking suspicion they would have told me if I joined them to become the 1,000th ghost living in their mansion! Sneaky, sneaky!

    I even went to Maleficent, who I always invite to each and every birthday party. I figured that even though she might not be able to tell the future, she could definitely cast a wicked spell that might help. And while she tried to tempt me to buy a spinning wheel with an extra sharp spindle for some unknown reason, she could not be bothered to cast a spell that would reveal the hours for October. She was just too busy. Something about a forest of thorns and skies on a fog of doom. Honestly, I'm not sure it was a good idea to summon her.

    But alas, my friend, we will not know the theme park hours or when the Extended Evening Theme Park Entry benefit will be offered to Guests of Deluxe Resort Hotels and Deluxe Villas until the hours are posted on the Hours & Events Calendar. These are not usually posted until 60 days ahead of time and are subject to change. So keep checking back as your vacation draws nearer and your dates are 60 days away.

    Now I have to ask: how excited are you for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party? Between the usual offerings, the new costumes for Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, and some of the other brand-new offerings coming to the party this year, it's bound to be a scream! I hope you trick-or-treat to your heart's content, sing and dance along with all of the fun entertainment, and meet all of your favorite villains and characters! I would tell you to ask them about the calendar, but by the time you're meeting them, you’ll already know! Ooh, maybe I should have visited Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog. After all, he’s got friends on the other side. Oh well, next time!

    Amanda, I wish you the best time on your not-so-spooky visit. If you have any other questions, I'm dying to answer them!
