    I noticed that MNSSHP is happening on August 24th this year and was wondering if the park will be as decorated then as it is in late fall? Also are fast passes available during the Halloween party?

    Hi Brendan, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question! 

    I absolutely love seeing the way in which Magic Kingdom Park (and even some of the other Theme Parks and Resorts) get decorated for the various seasons! While I don’t know exactly when the Parks will get their fall decor, I remember that they started appearing pretty early last year, right before the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Because this year’s first Party is scheduled for August 17th, there’s a good chance that fall will start appearing at Magic Kingdom Park (at least in terms of decorations) at around that time.

    In past years, FastPass+ service wasn’t offered during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and I haven’t heard anything about that changing this year. The good news is that the standby lines get shorter as the night goes on, as there are typically fewer people at Magic Kingdom Park during these Special Events and that those who are there are often enjoying special entertainment options and treats, rather than the Park’s attractions.

    Have a Magical Day,
