    Hello!! We are planning to attend MNSSHP in October. We are not staying on site (BOO!) but wondered, if I buy my tickets for the party 30 days prior to arrival, will I be allowed to use FastPass+? Thanks!

    Hello Candice,

    I really liked your clever "Boo" reference in your question that inquires about Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.    You have gotten me in the party spirit!

    During most special events, such as Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, the FastPass+ system is not utilized.  These special after hours parties have a limited number of party tickets for sale and therefore the crowds are much lower.  That is one of the reasons my family loves them so much!

    Candice you won't have to worry about making FastPass+ selections, but you should consider purchasing your tickets in advance to ensure the party on the date in which you would like to attend doesn't sell out.  Not all parties sell out, but there is no guarantee either way.

    Here is a tip for you on party night:  Arrive to the Magic Kingdom well before the start of the party to gain entrance before the majority of party-goers arrive at 7:00 p.m.  In the recent past, party-goers have been allowed entrance to the Magic Kingdom anytime after 4:00 p.m. with their party ticket.  Although the exact time of 4:00 p.m. early entrance is subject to change, you should be able to enter on party night sometime before 7:00 p.m. with your party tickets.

    Thank you for your question Candice and "Boo to You!"
