Special Touring Tips -- Some Spoilers

Everyone, kids and adults alike, is welcome to dress in costume. Costumes must be "kid-friendly". Masks are ok as long as vision is not obscured. Dressing as a Disney character is permitted, but guests may not pose for photos or sign autographs as that character.

New in 2010, guests may enter the park (in costume) using their party ticket three hours before the party begins and enjoy the regular park activities until the party starts. Please note that there is a separate set of turnstiles for party guests to use - these are the ones all the way over on the right side. Guests must get a wristband upon entering the park - these will be checked multiple times during the party, especially at the beginning.

A special "Mickey's Halloween Party" guide map is available at the turnstiles, which gives the times of the fireworks and parade, as well as the locations of the treat stations and character greeting areas. Guests should also pick up a treat bag upon entering the park. There will be 8 Hide-and-Go-Treat Trails with about 50 treat stations. In addition to a variety of chocolates and other candies, healthy treat options include apple slices, carrots, raisins, and fruit crisps.

Most of the park is accessible, except for Toontown and Tom Sawyer Island, with most attractions operating, including Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and Haunted Mansion Holiday. These dining locations will be open:
Blue Ribbon Bakery
Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor
Plaza Inn
Refreshment Corner
Royal Street Veranda
The Golden Horseshoe
Stage Door Cafe
Bengal Barbecue
Tomorrowland Terrace

A number of popcorn, pretzel, churro, and drink carts are also open during the party.

The only way to see the Halloween Screams fireworks is to attend one of the Mickey's Halloween Parties - the fireworks will be displayed only on party nights. The fireworks will be shown at 9:30 p.m. on all party nights.

Mickey's Costume Party is the new character cavalcade which includes several floats, including a Haunted Castle Float, plus Disney characters wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. There's new spooky (but fun) music that will have guests dancing and even howling along. The cavalcade runs on the usual parade route twice on each party night - at 8:15 and 10:15 p.m. on Tuesdays, and at 8:15 and 10:30 p.m. on Fridays and on Halloween night.

There are character greeting areas throughout the park, with a backdrop and a Disney PhotoPass photographer. PhotoPass photographers will also be available in several areas throughout the park to photograph guests.
