    We are a month away from making our FP reservations. We are also going to Mickey’s Halloween party but won’t be at MK that day. I read that you can make FP reservations between 4-7pm. Is this true? If so, do I do that as normal on the app?

    Boo to you, Kayleigh!

    You're going to have a spook-tacular time at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I've also done exactly what you're wanting to do with FastPass+ selections during the overlapping hours of day guests and party guests - so I'm happy to help. 

    You can make FastPass+ selections during the hours that party guests are allowed into the park before it officially closes. However, there are a few caveats to consider.

    • 6:00pm is usually the last FastPass+ time available for the day as there is a one-hour arrival window. With the park closing to day guests at 7pm, the last FastPass+ times are going to be between 5:45pm - 6:00pm. In my experience booking FastPass+ during "party" overlap, I usually only get in one, maybe two attractions using a FastPass+ reservation.

    • Guests must have valid theme park admission linked to their My Disney Experience Account to make FastPass+ selections. Special event tickets are ineligible. This means, if you're only attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and will not be visiting any other theme parks, you will not be able to make FastPass+ reservations.

    • If you have valid theme park admission linked to your My Disney Experience Account, you can reserve FastPass+ options between 4-7pm, BUT, there's a catch; guests can make three FastPass+ reservations, per day, at the same theme park for the number of days worth of valid theme park admission they have available. So if you were to have a three-day admission ticket and you made FastPass+ reservations at Magic Kingdom on the day you attended the party, while it would not charge you one of your ticket days, if would take up one of your FastPass+ days. I hope that makes sense :)
