    Newbie for Halloween Party on actual Halloween Oct 31 - Dinner reservations or not?

    I have a question for seasoned Halloween party-goers. My family is going to our first Halloween Party on Halloween Oct 31. Not sure what to expect in terms of crowds. Should we expect "touringPlans" crowd levels of 9 or 10? Should we make dinner reservations if they're available or just eat on the fly? Any tips for first-timers (things to do and not to do)?

    There probably won't be TS reservations available during the party itself unless a dining package is offered (which hasn't happened yet). When the party was at DL, there was a dining package offered at BB, but nothing has been announced for DCA this year. DCA will want non-ticketed party guests out of the park before the party starts, so TS reservations will stop earlier than usual on party nights. If you want a later TS reservation, you'll need to look at DL or DTD. Otherwise, plan on CS meals. We usually plan on a later lunch, more substantial than usual, to tide us over through the early party hours, then grab a hearty snack at a CS location later on. Don't skip a meal, dine on candy, then go looking for food late during the party when your whole group is starving and lines are long. Hanger is ugly -- we've seen guests ripping on CMs when they couldn't get served quickly enough or when TS places weren't open. Plan ahead, know the menus so that you know where you can get things people in your group will eat (look over the menus on the DLR website), be proactive! This is a PARTY, not a drag -- being prepared will help make it as fun as possible for you and the other guests around you!

    Thanks for the great advice! A larger lunch early in the day followed by snacks during the evening (chance to do more mobile orders than usual) sounds like a great plan. I will be sure to schedule a big protein breakfast the morning after to counteract all that candy! Thanks again, tea4two!

    We usually bring a few protein bars, too, or some trail mix to munch in lines, just to balance out all the sugar during the party and to keep us going without crashing. There are usually bags of apple slices or mini carrots available at treat trails, so you can bring some cheese and crackers/peanut butter and crackers to go with those to keep the energy levels up, too. And make sure that everyone drinks plenty of water!
