    Have plans to be in Disney 10/31. Can you explain the park hours and the special events happening ?

    How ya doin' Illiana and welcome to planDisney!

    This is Halloween, everybody scream! Spooky Season has hit a fever pitch at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Pumpkin spice and actual pumpkins have taken over the place and everyone's running amuck, amuck, amuck. Since you have plans to be in the place where the magic happens, I'm happy to give you the rundown on the Halloween happenings.

    On October 31st, Magic Kingdom Park will be hosting the penultimate evening of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This special ticketed event will begin at 7 PM sharp so Guests without a ticket to the party will have from 9 AM until 6 PM to frolic before they have to exit the park. Guests who were lucky enough to grab a ticket before they all sold out will have a night of frightful eating, ghoulish trick or treating, and rare meeting-and-greeting to enjoy. In addition, there are special entertainment experiences like the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular and Mickey's Boo-To-You Halloween Parade. At the stroke of midnight, it'll all be over so Jack Skellington can get the place ready for his other favorite holiday, Christmas!

    EPCOT will be open from 9 AM to 9 PM for regular day Guests with Extended Evening Theme Park Hours for Guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts and other select hotels until 11 PM. I always advise Park Hopping to this park at 2 PM if you have a morning at Magic Kingdom Park and no tickets to that evening's party. The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is in full effect and you can catch Harmonious for a spectacular evening finisher.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is open from 9 AM to 9 PM for all Guests with an additional 30 minutes of Early Theme Park Entry starting at 8:30 AM for Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection hotels of every tier.  

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park will be following the same Early Theme Park Entry time and guidelines as Disney's Hollywood Studios and closing at 7 PM.

    Pro-tip: If you purchased your Theme Park Ticket with a Park Hopper Option, you can enter your second park of the day starting at 2 PM if that park is not at capacity.

    Illiana, I hope I've been able to clear up any confusion. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
