    We are going to be in Orlando October 26-29 for a wedding. We have 1 day to go to Disney, Sun Oct 27. This is only time spouse will be there, 7 yo & I go once a year. So MNSSHP or MK shortened day (both not an option)? Rides are our top priority.

    Welcome, Barbara!

    I'm so glad to hear that you'll be able to squeeze in a little bit of Disney magic when you're in Orlando for the wedding. Whenever my family and I are anywhere near Orlando or Anaheim, we make sure we add in at least a day or two to visit the Disney Parks. We can't possibly be that close and not enjoy some time there!

    While I love Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and have enjoyed attending it the past two years, if you only have one day and rides are your top priority, I'd probably suggest skipping the Halloween party to enjoy a fuller day in the parks. Have you considered getting a Park Hopper ticket so that you can visit Magic Kingdom all day and then when it's time for guests without party tickets to leave, you can make your way over to either Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom? If it were my family, that's what we'd do.

    If you plan your time well and take advantage of pre-booking your FastPass+ selections for the must-do attractions at Magic Kingdom, you can then head to another park to round out the evening. Another option if the budget doesn't allow for adding on the Park Hopper option, is to enjoy Magic Kingdom from opening until it closes for the Halloween party, and then head over to Disney Springs to enjoy browsing and exploring that fun area. Maybe make dining reservations for a favorite spot and enjoy a leisurely end to the day!

    I hope those suggestions helps as you continue to plan this exciting day, Barbara!
