Am I Able to Book FastPasses for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off this Friday (August 16th). This spooktacular seasonal event is brimming with Halloween delights including trick-or-treating, a Hocus-Pocus-themed stage show, a parade featuring many of your favorite Happy Haunts, special Halloween touches on Magic Kingdom attractions, character meet and greets, and the ALL NEW evening fireworks display hosted by non-other than Jack Skellington. When it comes to attending the party, the question I get as MOST OFTEN is whether or not guest attending the party can book FastPass reservations.
The answer is: NO (for the most part).
As you may already know, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special ticketed event that kicks off nightly around 7pm. Your party ticket serves as your theme park admission ticket and will allow you to gain access to the Magic Kingdom from 4pm. At around 6pm, Disney Cast Members will cordon off the areas and start shifting guests without a party ticket toward the exits of the park.
If you have a valid theme park ticket and are already at Magic Kingdom that day, it is possible to use FastPasses during that grey area between 4-6 pm. However, the system is automatically set up to not offer FastPass tickets during party hours.
If I don’t have regular theme park admission tickets only a party ticket, can I book FastPasses from 4-6? Not really. Even if you could squeeze in the ODD singular FastPass (which is all you could do really with the time allotted) the Disney system doesn’t allow you to do so. Last year I had several clients who booked the odd FastPass only to find that it was eventually dropped by the system. This is due to the fact that though your party ticket gives you PM access to the Magic Kingdom it is different from a standard admission ticket and with that comes restrictions.
So that means I’ll be waiting in long lines for attractions? Nope! One of the great things about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is that attendance is capped to keep crowds at a reasonable level. This means that though you will encounter lines for the attractions that remain open, they should be minimal compared to earlier in the day – thus eliminating the need for FastPasses.
And what rides they are! Did you know that during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween parade guests can enjoy special Halloween-themed versions of your favorite attractions? This includes riding Space Mountain in complete darkness while set to a spooky Halloween soundtrack. You also won’t want to miss the Pirates of the Caribbean which will feature a crew of LIVE pirates joining in on the fun!
