    Hi I plan on taking a quick mommy and me trip in September, the day we get there I want to do MNSSHP. What is the latest I need to be at the park for the party? Is there a way to store my stuff at the hotel before check in and how late can I check in?

    Welcome, Foolish Mortal! A Mommy-and-Me trip for a spirited celebration has my ghoulish heart all atwitter. Thank you, Ashlee, for coming to planDisney with this question and including us in your ghostly shenanigans.

    Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is the perfect event to create memories for a lifetime. In previous years, the party has gone from 7 pm until Cinderella's clock strikes midnight, ending the ball. Guests with tickets were able to enter Magic Kingdom Park at 4 pm to get the party started early. This year's event has not yet been announced, but the timing has been consistent year-to-year.

    The evening is devilishly delightful with characters in costume, Hocus Pocus on the Cinderella Castle stage, and even a few of my favorite attractions coming alive with special tricks and treats. You will be allowed entry to the party at any time with a ticket. I would recommend getting there as early as possible, and at least by 8 pm, to make sure you have enough time to enjoy it all without feeling pressured to squeeze it all in quickly.

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can check into your room using Direct-to-Room service on your My Disney Experience App before you arrive. You'll be checked in and notified when your room is ready. You are welcome to stop by your resort and leave your bags with Bell Services, and your bags will be delivered to your room when Cast Members have it ready for your vacation. 

    Did you know Halfway to Halloween is lurking around the corner? For a shriek peek at Disney's plans for this boo-tiful holiday, keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog's Halloween page. I would expect some news about this year's event will materialize at the end of April.

    Please come back to planDisney with any other questions that may be haunting you. We're dying to help.

    Happy Haunting!
