  • Will there be complimentary bottled soft drinks/water, ice cream novelties and popcorn like other after hours events?

  • When do Halloween fireworks dessert party tickets go on sale or for Reservations I really want to get them?

  • Why does Disney world not have the same shows and attractions as Disneyland does? It is disappointing to Coco or Oogie Boogie Bash is not apart of the Orlando event.

  • Will there be complimentary popcorn, ice cream, soda and water?

  • How do you get tickets? Call I or via the w site site? Thank you

  • (LAURA) You don’t have to have a regular park reservation to attend the Halloween party. Since its a limited capacity event, park pass reservations wont be necessary. You can always call Disney to make sure that no changes were made closer to your desired event date.

  • Im so excited! Opening night is while we are there. Ive always wanted to experience Halloween at Disney but as a teacher its hard to take time off at the beginning of the school year. Thank you Disney!!!

  • What time can you enter the park with your ticket ?

  • How early can we enter the park for this event?

  • Does anyone know if you have to have a park ticket and park reservation on the night of the ticketed party? Or would this be considered an exception to those needs?

  • If making hotel reservations for night of party will you be directed as to how to get the tickets early?

  • Will we get the free popcorn, Mickey ice cream bars, and drinks like we did at Boo Bash last year?

  • So excited! I’m happy to celebrate Halloween in August!

  • Question: Which specific Walt Disney World Resort hotels are considered to be “select”?

  • August 12th? So we’re doing Halloween in Summer. Seems awful early.
