    Planning our 1st WDW trip for 9/2-9/8 and hope to attend the TBA Mickey Halloween party. I was wondering how I will know which park I will be in 180 days in advance to make dinner reservations, if I don’t know which day I’ll be at MK for the Mickey party.

    Dear Ramona,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great planning question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    It can be a bit challenging to plan for your trip and for your Advanced Dining Reservations when the dates for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party have not yet been released! I recommend that you go ahead and make all of the Advanced Dining Reservations that you would like, and then adjust them once you hear which of your dates would be potential party nights. 

    Here's a Moms Panel tip for you: You can actually arrive at 4pm on party nights, to maximize your time at the party! That is subject to change, of course.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
