    I purchased tickets to Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Event. I know this starts at 4PM. Do I need to purchase separate tickets if I want to access the park at opening time of 9AM?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Shannon. I'm so excited to hear you have plans to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! I just enjoyed this spooktacular event a few weeks ago. I know you'll have a frightfully good time, just like I did!

     You ask a great question about your event ticket. If you would like to enter Magic Kingdom Park any earlier than 4:00 PM on the evening you have a ticket for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, you'll need to purchase a Theme Park Ticket and make a Theme Park Reservation for Magic Kingdom Park for that same date. 

     If I'm attending an after-hours type of event in the theme parks, I try to lay low the day of the event. There is SO much to see and do at an after-hours event like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, so I try to have my energy conserved beforehand. Not to mention, the event goes late into the evening! On the day of an after-hours party, I relax at my Disney Resort hotel (usually by the pool!). Then, I head to the theme park at 4:00 PM with my event ticket. I use the time before the party officially starts to grab a meal and explore the theme park. Then, when the party officially begins, I'm ready to experience event exclusives!

     I hope this was helpful, Shannon. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about the Walt Disney World Resort!
