Be Our Guest before MNSSHP?

Would it be a bad idea to have a 4-4:30pm (depending on what time we are allowed in for the Halloween party) ADR for Be Our Guest on the night that we are attending MNSSHP? Would we miss too much of the festivities? We have another full day planned at MK, but I think we are doing CRT for breakfast or lunch and then we want to do the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party that night. We REALLY want to try Be Our Guest, though. What would you suggest: 4-4:30pm ADR on night of Halloween party (we will NOT have park tickets this day) or skip the dessert party and do Be Our Guest on our full MK day?

ETA: The day of the party would be Halloween if that matters

I have no opinion on the Dessert Party (never done it), but seems like either way you want to do it is fine.

I normally recommend eating your evening meal in MK and well before the 7:00p MNSSHP starts--doesn't matter where. This maximizes your limited time at the party and even allows you to get in a long queue for a character M&G (such as Seven Dwarves or Princesses/Princes) before the party starts if that's your thing.

(And no reason to think the standard 4:00p party admission will change this year.)

Thank you! Do you know what time they allow Halloween party guests in? Would I be ok with a 4 or should I try for 4:15-4:30?

ETA: Just saw that you added they allow guests in at 4. I'll go for 4:15-4:30. Thanks!!

They consistently open the gates for party-goers at 4:00, and even a few minutes before on occasion.

Halloween is a Wed. and we are planning CRT on a Sat. But thanks for the idea, I'll make sure I don't plan a breakfast for Thurs.!

About the dessert party, that's disappointing. I've heard good things about it, but granted I haven't talked to many people.
