    We are staying at the Polynesian in Oct. If I make dinner reservations for a Character Meal in the MK during one of the nights when the Halloween festivities are taking place, can we get into the park without purchasing the additional tickets.

    Hello, Wendell!

    Character dining experiences are always on my family's must-do list. If you plan to make a dining reservation during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, then you must purchase a ticket to the event. Guests who do not have an event ticket must leave the Magic Kingdom when the party starts at 7 P.M. My advice is to make your character dining reservation around 5 P.M. if you do not plan to stay for Mickey's party. That way you have plenty of time to enjoy your meal and character interactions before it is time for non-party Guests to leave the theme park.  

    I hope this helps with your planning. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance as your plan your October visit. 

    Happy Planning!
