Disney World Crowd Calendar October 2017

October 2016 Disney World Crowd Calendar and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party dates

Earlier this morning I announced the October 2016 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party dates on my Facebook wall.  I’ve got those dates included here as well as the October 2016 Disney World Crowd Calendar is ready!

Expected dates for October 2016 Halloween Parties are October 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 30, 31.  Each is marked on the Crowd Calendar along with Extra Magic Hours and such.

Halloween Party tickets went on sale April 8 last year, but they also announced dates for Halloween and Christmas Party were announced in February also.

Disney has not yet provided any Wishes or Main Street Electrical Parade info for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom is showing 5pm closings with no info on Rivers of Light.  No need to worry!  All that stuff will come in later updates.  Basically, this info is just for people to be aware of 7PM Magic Kingdom closings (Parties) and Extra Magic Hours.  All the other stuff will get filled in later.  MSEP and regular WISHES are never performed on 7PM closing dates as parties have their own parade and fireworks.  Click on the Crowd Calendar info below for more details.

  1. We are planning to book Cali Grill on Sat Oct 1 during Wishes (if we can get a res). I see Wishes schedule isn’t up yet. Is there a chance that there is no Wishes that night? Or do they run Wishes (or some other/ special firework show) every night and they just haven’t decided on a time yet? Thank you so much!

  2. Thank you! I have been hoping to hear about the MNSSHP! I am hoping to get a reservation for the Pirates & Pals boat ride. Turns out that the night I had planned to try for the reservation is a party night. Do you know if they still have the boat ride and just watch the Halloween fireworks instead? Sorry – pretty much a newbie here. I’ve learned a ton from your site. Thanks again!

      1. Thanks,Thia! We actually did this during our one trip to Disney back in 2014. Going again this Oct and my daughter immediately asked if we could do the boat ride again. Wonderful time. We actually had our twins dressed up at the Pirates League then did the Pirates & Pals event that night. What a wonderful memory. I’ll never forget it. At one point my daughter was squeezing her eyes shut during Wishes. I asked why she wasn’t watching the show and she said “I’m wishing this night would never end.” I knew right then it was a trip worth every penny and I knew we had to get back! SO happy to be going this Oct!

  3. Thanks! Always so useful posts. We are going Sept 14-18 and plan to attend the Friday 16th party. When should we purchase tickets? Although not the first party, will it be more crowded in the first week? Also, Any idea why the Magic Kingdom restaurants dinner hours in September are only 4-6 pm? I called Disney Dining and cast member said it was due to the Halloween Party dates not being set. Now the dates are set, but dining is still restricted online and by phone.

    1. Disney is notoriously behind on things. Eventually dining will open correctly. First week of parties is usually light, but buy in advance to avoid sell outs
