    I have reservations in October. I was hoping to go to the Halloween party. If I don’t do a park that day, I was wondering what time we would be allowed into the park?

    Boo to you, Linda!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this frightfully fun question!

    Autumn is one of my favorite times to fall into magic at Walt Disney World Resort, and I'm so excited to hEAR that you're planning to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!  I absolutely love this event, and I'm sure that you will agree that it is a ghoulishly good time.

    I think it is a really good plan to forego visiting one of the theme parks on the day that you will be attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  You will want to take full advantage of all that the party has to offer, and that can often mean a late night.  When I have tickets for a nighttime special event, I like to sleep in and spend the day relaxing by the pool at my Walt Disney World Resort Hotel so that I am well-rested when it's time to head over to the party. 

    During previous yEARs, guests were admitted to Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:00 p.m. with their ticket to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  This is a great time to grab a bite to eat or experience a few attractions before the trick-or-treating and party-exclusive entertainment begins.  As it gets closer to the fall season, be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news about this yEAR's Halloween festivities.

    Linda, you won't want to miss my favorite part of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey's Boo-To-You Halloween Parade.  If you can catch the second performance of this bewitching parade, it will often be less crowded than the earlier performance.  For more helpful Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tips, check out our Disney Parks Moms Panel "Moms Views."
