    If I am visiting Magic Kingdom on the day it is hosting MNSSHP, but I don’t plan to attend the party, what is the latest dinner reservation time I will be allowed to make for Be Our Guest?

    Hi Danica! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! Fall is my favorite time at Magic Kingdom Park. This pumpkin-spiced gal loves the theme- carved pumpkins throughout Main Street U.S.A. and fall foliage colors. Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM. This means day guests without party tickets will be asked to exit the park at the official park closing time. Historically, this has been at 6:00 PM. You should plan on making your dining reservation at or before closing.

    Here is my insider's tip as to why I like your plan. Many guests will not make a Disney Park Pass Reservation on Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party dates because of the early closing. Last year, I enjoyed two such days without party tickets. I was able to do my wish list of attractions and sneak in some treats all before 3:00 PM. Personally, I think if you schedule an early evening dinner at the park closing, you will have a great Magic Kingdom Park day plan.

    Alternatively, if you do decide to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, your party ticket allows entry into Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:00 PM. With the party going on until midnight, you could choose a late afternoon to nighttime visit that would include trick-or-treating, Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular, and Mickey's Boo-To-You Parade.

    Keeping it Magical,
