Magic Kingdom has 2 VERY popular restaurants and reservations to visit these spots can be tough to find.
We’re talking, of course, about Be Our Guest Restaurant and Cinderella Royal Table. While getting a reservation to these spots can already be tough, it’s about to get a little bit more tricky for daytime guests (and perhaps a little bit easier for an exclusive group of guests) to grab a seat there!
From August 12th through October 31st, 2022, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will be offered in Magic Kingdom. As part of the festivities, guests with a ticket to the party can enjoy some party-exclusive treats, go trick-or-treating, catch some party-exclusive fireworks, a special parade and stage show, and more.
On party nights, Magic Kingdom will generally close early — at around 6PM. That can cause a few complications if you’re trying to eat at some of this park’s most popular spots.
First, it means you’ll generally have LESS time during the day to eat there. While Magic Kingdom will be opening early on some party days, it still means that daytime guests will be competing for likely less reservation spots at these restaurants, particularly when it comes to dinner reservations.
But there’s another thing to know about these spots. Be Our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table will actually remain open during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. If you’re hoping to eat there during your time at the party (assuming you’ve got a ticket to attend the party), you can start to make reservations on August 9th.
Note that the dining experiences at Be Our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table are a separate cost and not included in the price of the Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket. Since you’ll only be competing against those with party tickets for reservations, it could give you a better chance to dine at one of these spots.
So if you’re traveling to Magic Kingdom on a Not-So-Scary Halloween Party date, make sure to book your dining reservations at Be Our Guest or Cinderella’s Royal Table (for regular park hours) as soon as you can, and mark your calendars for August 9th if you’re hoping to get a reservation for these spots during the party hours.
Keep in mind that you MUST have a Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket to dine in Magic Kingdom during party hours.
Remember that aside from potentially getting a reservation at these spots, party guests can trick-or-treat around Magic Kingdom for FREE (it’s included in the cost of the ticket). There will also be specialty snacks available for purchase during the party.
Not going to the Halloween party? No stress. You can still get many Halloween snacks during the day in Magic Kingdom! Plus, you can click here to buy Disney Halloween merchandise online (including NEW ears!).
