    We're planning a trip for mid-October with our 4 year old twin grand-daughter's. Is the Halloween party really worth the extra admission costs and what time is the fireworks? Can we just watch them from the Polynesian? Thanks.

    Hi Debbie,

    MNSSHP is a blast & I think its worth the $ especially if you've never been. If you're planning an Oct. trip, I'd put this on my must do list.

    It is a special ticketed event so MK will not be as crowded which shortens lines & makes it easier to maneuver the park. Everyone (including adults) is encouraged to dress up. You'll be boarding rides so keep that in mind when selecting costumes. 

    MK will be decked out in Halloween decorations. When you enter, be sure to pick up a MNSSHP Guide Map. You'll each be given a Trick-or-Treat bag (or bring your own). There will be several locations throughout the park where you can T-o-T (locations will be marked on the Guide Map). There will be several character M&G locations around the park. The characters dress up for Halloween too! PhotoPass Photographers will be located throughout the park.

    Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade is awesome & is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. & 10:30 p.m. (its easier to get a good spot for the 2nd parade). The Happy HalloWishes fireworks are scheduled for 9:30 p.m. Not every attraction is open during MNSSHP - but the most popular ones will be - check the Guide Map for a list.

    Last year there were a couple of character dance party locations & a Disney Villains Mix & Mingle in front of Cinderella Castle. Alice & Mad Hatter's Treat Party was along the back path b/t Toontown & Tomorrowland. These will be listed on the Guide Map.

    You will be able to see the fireworks from the Polynesian but there is so much more to this event other than the fireworks & inside the Magic Kingdom is where I'd want to be. If you decide to go, make it a low key day & plan for a long nap before heading out to the MK for MNSSHP. Wishing you magical Halloween memories :-) Allison
