    Seriously no Halloween party dates released until May? That is way past my 180 day window to make reservations for eating. Really wanted our first night there to be the MNSSHP. Should I just guess as to when the party is or wait.. any ideas?? help

    Hi Jone,


    I love going to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, and my entire family dresses up as well! I would make sure that you see the special Parade as the Headless Horseman actually rides through the Magic Kingdom!  The fireworks are amazing as well.  Plus, who doesn't like Trick-or-Treating at the happiest place in the whole world?


    I can understand your frustration with not having the dates for the party.   I do not think you will need to wait until May for the dates to be out as I recently talked with a Cast Member about this, and she thought that the dates will be available in March.   Last year, the party begin September 13 and was every Tuesday and Friday throughout September and more days in October.  What I would recommend doing is making Advanced Dining Reservations for all the days you will be on vacation.  Once Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party dates are available, you can cancel any reservations that interfere with this party.  This way you can take advantage of the 180 days prior to your vacation and ensure that you will be dining where you want to be.  Please send me a follow up question if I can help you further, Jone.  Have a magical vacation!
