    We are going to the Not So Scary Halloween Party soon and I was wondering if there is a way to get everything done (meeting all the characters, parade, fireworks, shows, trick or treating, etc)

    Hi Mark!

    If you stay at the party the whole time, from 7pm to midnight, then you will have no problems getting it all done except meeting all of the characters.  There are a lot of special character meet and greets.  i think meeting all of them will, in some sense, come down to luck.  It depends on how many other guests want to meet the characters as well!  Also, I'm assuming that you are only doing the special party events and not going on any attractions!  If you start to go on attractions (and it will be tempting because the lines will be low) then I think you can't do everything!

    Pick up a party map and guide when you first enter the Magic Kingdom that night.  You'll want to pay attention to the show schedule so that you don't miss the Villains Mix and Mingle show in front of the Castle.  Also, there will be two showings of the Boo To You parade; the second parade will generally be a lot less crowded.

    Good luck and have a magical time!
