    On night we can go to MNSSHP, we have dinner ADRs for Chef Mickey's. We can't get Chef M ADRs for any other night, but we can get ADRs for Garden Grill the following night (same day as our breakfast ADRs at Hollywood&Vine). Skip MNSSHP or change ADRs?

    Hi Jill!

    You didn't say exactly what time your Advanced Dining Reservation is for, but Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party will be from 7:00 pm to midnight.  Historically speaking, guests with party tickets were allowed to enter the Magic Kingdom at 4:00 that day (of course, guests can just use a Magic Your Way ticket and enter the park at park opening, but guests without party tickets will have to leave at 7:00 pm). 

    The party is my favorite hard ticketed event.  My personal recommendation is to definitely have dinner and be at the Magic Kingdom no later than 7:00 pm.  If your ADR at Chef Mickey's is around 5:00, then I suggest going to dinner there and then heading to the Magic Kingdom.  But if your ADR is later than 5:00 pm, then I suggest skipping it and just heading to the party!  The party is a lot of fun!

    Good luck with your decision!
