    If you only have the MNSSHP ticket and arrive at 4pm, can you buy genie + for 4pm-7pm when the party actually starts? I know you can’t buy it for the party.. but want to see if I can get it for the 3hrs before.

    Welcome to planDisney, Amanda! I'm so glad to be able to answer a question for someone from my home province of Ontario today. I'm excited to hear that you plan to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year! I'm going in October, and I can't wait to put on my costume and go trick-or-treating around Magic Kingdom Park.

    While your ticket for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party does get you entrance into Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:00 PM, it cannot be used with Disney Genie+ service. If you have a regular day ticket, however, or a ticket with the Park Hopper Option, you will be able to secure Lightning Lane selections during that time if you choose to do so. I find that the Theme Park tends to be a bit quieter on days when there's a Party since it closes early to regular guests, so I have typically been able to get in quite a few attractions between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM while I'm waiting for the spooky fun to begin. Remember, there's also a special opportunity to join the Virtual Queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run at 6:00 PM exclusively for Party guests, so that's a great opportunity to secure your spot on an attraction for later in the evening. It's an extra special experience to enter the Grid after dark!

    I hope this answers your question, Amanda, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
