It has been reported you CAN get in at 4:00 this year...

See this post...

It was on another board on the DIS - he asked a MK Guest Services CM - which is about as good as you get, I think.

Also at Disneyland they have an area called Big Thunder Ranch. In this area they had a man who carved real pumpkins into all sorts of unbelievable Disney characters.

Disney online communications response to special event admittance

Here's the email I received today. I had submitted a question via disneyworld.com asking if I could arrive at 4pm and expect to be admitted to MK with my MNSSHP special event ticket in time for a 4:45pm ADR.

========================

While we appreciate your interest, our Theme Parks offer Special Ticket
Events (such as the list below) during the year which requires separate
admission tickets. Magic Your Way Tickets are not valid for these
events; however you are more than welcome to use them during the day of
the event until 7:00 pm when the park will close.

Guests holding a special event ticket are able to enter the park for
their special event any time after 7:00 pm.

Guests who have entered the Theme Park using a Magic Your Way ticket and
have also purchased Special event tickets for the same day may return to
the main entrance or designated locations in the park to have the
special event admission media swiped anytime after 4pm. You will receive
a wristband, which will serve as proof of admission for the event later
that evening.

Once they have swiped your event ticket and you have received a
wristband, you may stay in the park at regular park closing to enjoy the
event, while guests without wristbands will be told the park has closed
for the day and will be asked to leave the park. Designated locations
for wristband distribution are indicated by signage, or you may ask a
Cast Member for directions to these locations.

Some events we are currently selling that require special admission
ticket, and follow the above guidelines, include:

Night of Joy
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party
Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

That's the way that I read it, we are planning to go to the park until that evening in time for our reservations for Pirates League. I don't want to use a park day for less than two hours of being in the park before the party starts. We are going to Pirates League because of MNSSHP. Oh well, rules are rules -- I will still check with the people at the gate before we go in just in case.

I think that while that is the "official response" it won't be any different than years past. I's like the whole online ADR thing where people were able to book at 190 days, Disney knew about it and didn't stop it, but they weren't going to let anyone do that over the phone. They know it happens, and they can't publicly say it's fine, but they know logically they can't stop it. We will see after the first party!

i think this is a canned response-- and the one we would get if we called and asked. You can call 5 different times--get 5 different people with 5 different responses.

Last year the rumor was the same thing--and people were still able to get in the park at 4pm. (many people waited until 7pm)

So contrary to the official email response I posted yesterday -- which is what we want to hear, right -- I found this report to be interesting/amusing.

For the recent Last Tour to Endor special event, this author said "This event ran from 8 PM till 1 AM. However, the special event ticket did allow you to enter Hollywood Studios starting at 4 PM."

I really don't think we're going to know one way or the other until the parties start and people report back with what time they were allowed in.

Thankfully our MK day is the day of the party so I'll already be there. It just means changing into my costume in the bathroom.

So here's a question that may have already been asked but...

My plan for our MNSSHP night was to sleep in, stay at the hotel, play in the pool, etc. Then we have an ADR at 5:20 at Chef Mickey's. I really didn't care about not being able to get into the party until 7:00 because we probably wouldn't be there until then anyway. However now I am worried about the lines and all the people getting their wristbands and such right at 7:00 and that cutting into my party time. So assuming the rumor is true...

If I have 5-day park passes (for 4 people), it would cost me $12 to add on a day and have 6-day park passes. So is it worth the $12 to go to the park earlier and get my wristbands and such. Would I then be able to by-pass the entry line and all the people getting their ticket scanned and wristband? Is this going to be a long line if we are all waiting until 7:00? I should also mention I have a super impatient husband and I plan to get in line first for the 7 dwarfs. What do you all think? Or does this even make sense?

Perhaps.... but I wouldn't do anything until after the first party to see exactly when they are letting guests in.

Can I add a day once I get there? If so, then maybe that is what I will do if the rumor turns out to be true.

Yes, check the ticket FAQ sticky on page 1 of this board, but I believe you have 14 days after first use to upgrade.

We are going Sept 25th. In the past we have gone in a 4pm, not a problem. We went into the Xmas party last year at 4 also, again not a problem.

So excited, this is my favorite party!
