    We have tickets to MNSSHP on 10/30 and dinner reservations at The Crystal Palace @ 7pm. Will we have time to finish, without being rushed, in time to catch the first parade? I'm not sure what time the parade starts. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Kraig,

    You are going to have so much fun at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party - it's my family's absolute favourite Special Event at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Although the exact details have not yet been released for this year as of yet, I can tell you that last year, Mickey's "Boo-To-You" Halloween Parade took place at 8:35 PM and 11:15 PM. The Parade typically begins in Frontierland and ends by the park entrance.

    I expect that being so close to Halloween itself, October 30, 2016 will probably be one of the busier dates to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

    I personally think that so long as you arrive at The Crystal Palace 15 minutes prior to the time of your 7:00 PM Advance Dining Reservation, you will have plenty of time to enjoy your meal (without being rushed) before finding a spot to watch Mickey's "Boo-To-You" Halloween Parade.

    Main Street U.S.A will most probably be lined by guests already waiting for the parade when you exit the restaurant. Because of this, I would recommend looking for a spot to watch the parade from around the hub area as you enter the Magic Kingdom Park. (If Main Street U.S.A is jam packed with people, I would suggest that you walk through the shops to reach the hub area as opposed to battling through the crowds.)

    Wishing you a spooktacular trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
