    I have a reservation at Jungle Navigation at 7:10 pm. Magic Kingdom will close at 6 on the day in question. I do not have tickets to the Halloween Celebration that evening. Do I just wait in the park for my reservation?

    Hi Tina!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! On select evenings in the fall, Magic Kingdom hosts Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, where Guests can enjoy tricks and treats throughout the theme park. This specially ticketed event allows Guests to enjoy the party's exclusive offerings, as well as the attractions and dining in Magic Kingdom, during their special night in the park. While the party begins at 7:00 p.m., the theme park closes at 6:00 p.m. for Guests with standard theme parks who don't also have party tickets. After 6:00 p.m., all Guests without a ticket to that evening's party will be directed to the park's exits and won't be able to enjoy the park's attractions, entertainment, or dining.

    So unfortunately, since dining reservations do not include park admission and you don't have a party ticket, you won't be able to enjoy a 7:10 p.m. reservation at Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen. Don't worry, though, because you can still end your Magic Kingdom day with a tropical evening. You could either look for a reservation at Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen before 6:00 p.m. or if you would prefer a later meal, you can plan on enjoying dinner outside of Magic Kingdom.

    I recommend that you travel to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort to dine at one of its fantastic restaurants. 'Ohana is a fantastic choice because it offers a tasty meal that includes one of my favorite desserts, 'Ohana Bread Pudding. After your meal, I recommend that you make your way downstairs to Trader Sam's Grog Grotto for some fantastic beverages. You might recognize the namesake of this bar and you'll be sure to love the puns and pixie dust sprinkled in this little hideaway!

    Let us know if you have additional questions as your vacation approaches. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
