    We have tickets for MNSSHP October 2019. Would it be better to have an early dinner before the party starts or dine around 7pm so we can finish dinner and see the first parade at 9:15? I just want to make sure we don’t miss a thing!

    Hi Lori! Thanks so much for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    During Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party in years past, guests with a Party ticket were allowed entrance into the MagicKingdom at 4pm. FastPass+ wasn't available unless you had a theme park ticket for the Magic Kingdom or an Annual Pass. We're hoping that Mickey will spread a little pixie dust this year and allow his friends and fans the chance to start the party early. 

    I would suggest that you have an early dinner, somewhere between 4pm and 5pm so that you can be in the Magic Kingdom when the Party begins. This would allow you to enjoy your meal and the Party in its entirety. Experiencing the low crowds during this exclusive event is always something I look forward to. Ride lines will be low, and the treat-or-treat trails will be waiting for you. By arriving at the park at the start of the party, you can enjoy the sights and smells of Halloween before the Boo to You Parade and the other holiday events. 

    If the theme park opens at 4pm, you can even reserve Advanced Dining inside the Magic Kingdom, allowing you to walk out of the restaurant ready to be "not so scared." Be sure to check back here with us to verify if early access will be granted for guests during this year's event. 

    Lori here's to a frightfully, fun night for you and your family. Please stop by and visit with us again if you have more questions! 

    Happy planning,
