    I was wondering how would I go about booking a one night stay at a hotel with park tickets as we are visiting in October and are not staying in Orlando

    Hi Jordan, welcome to planDisney. Let's try and get your short stay at Walt Disney World sorted. 

    First, accommodation. There are many benefits to staying at a Disney Resort hotel, and from a quick search, I can see good availability for your desired dates. You just need to decide which Disney Resort hotel best suits your needs. Is closeness to Magic Kingdom Park important? Then I recommend any of the Monorail Resorts, such as Disney's Contemporary Resort. Or if budget-friendly is a top priority, I recommend Disney's Pop Century Resort.  

    Seven-day tickets are the lowest available on the United Kingdom website. Hakuna Matata, it means no worries, as alternative options are available. If pre-booking is a must, you can buy as little as 2-day tickets from the European site (in euros). Please know the standard tickets available do not include Park Hopper (available as an optional upgrade). 

    The second option is to buy single-day or shorter-dated tickets for Walt Disney World in the United States. Prices are subject to change and will vary depending on the Park you visit, the date, and various optional add-ons such as a Park Hopper Option. If you choose this option, I recommend buying tickets in the States online or by calling Guest Services as soon as you arrive rather than at the Main Entrance Ticket Booths, so there is no availability disappointment at the gate.

    If there is some flexibility in your dates, you could book Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This special event (separately ticketed) runs on select nights in October, offering experiences such as Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade and spellbinding overlays on some rides at the Magic Kingdom Park. You can usually enter the Park as early as 4 pm on the day of your ticket.

    I hope this information helps, Jordan, and whichever option you choose, I know you will enjoy an enchanting time at the Most Magical Place on Earth. I'm dropping in a video of tips for Disney first-timers, created with fabulous panelists Elaine and Jonathan. It's worth a watch to get the most out of your day. Enjoy every moment, Louise.
