Walt Disney World is becoming a very popular place to travel despite the ongoing pandemic. With safety guidelines set in place and some restrictions being lifted like temperature screening, many Disney Guests are excited to travel and are planning ahead. So far, Guests are planning as far as October, and we noticed Disney World park pass dates that were filling up pretty quickly!
Park Passes for October
With Walt Disney World celebrating its 50th Anniversary coming October 1 this year, many Guests are reserving their Park Passes way in advance to ensure they have a chance to celebrate alongside Mickey and Minnie! We happened to notice that Guests are excited to celebrate Halloween this year at Walt Disney World Resort and are already booking Park Passes for the parks.
As we can see, October 31 Park Pass reservations are filling up quickly as Theme Park Ticket Holders snagged up Magic Kingdom right away. Disney Guests may be planning ahead in hopes of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party returning to Magic Kingdom! If you’re planning to visit during Halloween, Guests can still book Disney’s Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. We do recommend booking as quickly as possible since Galaxy’s Edge has become a super popular land to visit!
Select Resort Hotels for October
The Park Pass Reservation Calendar has been the new system Disney has provided to ensure theme park capacity is monitored. Disney park pass recommends checking the calendar before purchasing a Ticket as desired dates may be unavailable. Once Guests decide which day they plan to visit their specific Disney theme park, Disney states that Guests should make a reservation immediately after they purchase a ticket. Check the official website for more information.
Right now, Select Resort Hotels are also booked for October 31 for Magic Kingdom. Disney Resort Guests who are planning to visit on Halloween night and staying in a Disney Resort still have a chance for the remaining three Disney theme parks.
Annual Passholders for October
If you’re an Annual Passholder and you wish to celebrate Halloween, you’re in luck. All four Disney Parks are still available to book a reservation! We recommend you reserve your Park Pass now as these dates will change soon.
As we can see, the only two dates that are filled are October 1 and 2 for Annual Passholders. Guests who plan on visiting on October 1 for Walt Disney World’s birthday still have a chance to celebrate in Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Furthermore, on October 2, our beloved Disney park, Magic Kingdom is completely filled.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Currently, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party experience is not available and Disney has not announced when they are bringing back this popular event. For those who have not experienced this spooktacular celebration, MNSSHP parties usually begin around mid-August and run through the first week of November. This event is held at Magic Kingdom after the park closes, from 7 p.m. to midnight and Guests can enter as early as 4 p.m.
Children and Disney adults can dress up and trick or treat from land to land. Mickey and friends also get to dress up and exclusive Disney Characters come out to play including Jack and Sally from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. This event also includes a fireworks show called Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular, special Disney Halloween dining options, snacks, and much more. Check Inside the Magic soon for more information when this Halloween party returns and Disney’s official website for details on this special event.
