Disney announced the dates for the parties a little while back, but we have been waiting for the tickets to go on sale. Good news, tickets are now available for purchase on the website!
These parties are some of the most popular events on Disney property. Both are really fun to attend, but most people will have a favorite between the two.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
The Halloween party lets guests trick-or-treat around the Magic Kingdom, meet characters that are rare to be seen in the parks (like Jack Skellington, Sally, Lotso, etc.), and the parade and fireworks show are really fun too. Plus, there is a special stage show. If you decide to trick-or-treat around the park you will leave with a ton of candy. The cast members give out handfuls of candy.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
Disney is known for their theming and decorations, especially during Christmas. The Christmas party at the Magic Kingdom is a pretty magical one which includes snow on Main Street U.S.A., a special parade, a special projection show on the castle, special fireworks, and more.

The ticket prices for the parties will vary, depending on the date you are going. The closer you get to Halloween or Christmas, the more expensive the tickets will be.
Something to look for at these parties are the free drinks and treats. Each year Disney will have food and drinks available at different locations during the party. The locations will be marked on the party maps. The maps are available around the park and at the entrance, so make sure you pick one up so you know where to go for the free treats. Also, keep an eye out for special merchandise that is only sold during the parties.
During the parties certain rides will be open and the wait times will be less, because there are fewer people in the park. We took the opportunity at the Christmas party to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. The wait was about a half hour or so, which is good for that ride.
Both parties are a lot of fun. It’s nice to have fewer people in the park, though if the party sells out it can still feel crowded. There is a lot to do during each party, so I recommend figuring out what is most important for your group to do during the party. For instance, it’s hard to fit everything in during the Halloween party, so it’s best to decide if you want to trick-or-treat, ride rides, or meet characters before you go to the party. The time goes by pretty fast and you don’t want to miss out on the stuff you really want to do.
Are you planning to attend one of the parties this year?
