    Visiting Disney World Sept. 1-9, 2020. I'd like to do one of the Halloween parties, but it's Labor Day weekend. Prefer the Friday night, but we could also do Monday. How much more crowded can we expect Friday to be, especially in Sept?

    Hi there, Lynette! I am so happy that you came back to see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I hope that you are ready to have a wickedly good time at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade and the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular are can not miss attractions. Throw in trick or treating, exclusive meet and greets with some rare characters, and low wait times for popular attractions, and you are set for a night full of frightful fun!

    Lynette, I always recommend booking the party for Monday. This is because any local Halloween-fans will probably pick a weekend night to visit the festivities. Add a holiday in the mix, and I would guess that you will have higher crowds on Friday than you will on Monday. 

    Lynette, if going to the Halloween Party on Friday works better with your schedule, you will still be able to have an amazing time! The number of tickets sold for each Halloween Party are limited, so crowds will still be lower than on a typical park day. 

    If you are looking to visit the Magic Kingdom during the day, I would also suggest that you go on a day that a Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is scheduled. Even though the park closes a bit earlier for the party and you will not be able to catch Happily Ever After, crowds are typically much lower those days. In fact, the last time that my family visited the Magic Kingdom on a party day, we got to ride almost every ride in the park before we had to stop for lunch!

    Whichever day that you chose to visit Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, I just know you will have a great time. Don't forget to purchase your tickets in advance to get the special pre-purchase price and to be sure that they don't sell out!

    Boo to you!
