A very common question that I get from people traveling to Walt Disney World during either Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is "Is it worth the money?"
The answer is YES! I have never got the pleasure of experiencing Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party but I have experienced Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and it was a blast! There was something so magical about seeing the kids (and the characters!) dressed up and getting to trick or treat in the Magic Kingdom! Is there anywhere else in the world that is better to trick or treat?
I can't wait to go to Walt Disney World during the holidays so that I can experience Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. It has been a dream of mine forever to see Walt Disney World at Christmas time, I have watched that parade on my Disney Christmas Sing Along since I was a very little girl and to see it in person would be a dream come true.
Some people also ask me what these two parties include.
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party includes the special Castle Dream Lights on Cinderella Castle, Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade, the Holiday Wishes Fireworks, A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show, Celebrate the Season Show, Character meet and greets (The characters are dressed in holiday gear), Character dance parties (this is great character interaction, not just standing in line to meet them), complimentary hot cocoa and cookies, magical snow fall on Main street and last but not least, most rides are open! Because this party is limited to a certain amount of people the ride lines aren't too long, especially because people are busy with all the fun party stuff!
Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party is a non-scary Halloween party that features Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween parade and Hallowishes fireworks display as well as trick-or-treating throughout the park. There is no shortage of character interaction here either and they are all dressed in their cute Halloween costumes! They have dance parties as well. The Boo-To-You parade is not to be missed! The Headless Horseman rounds out the parade and is really a site to see! You will get TONS of candy as well!
One tip that I have for people is to buy one less day on your park tickets and then just spend the day that you are going to the party at your resort pool or Downtown Disney and go into the party at about 4:00, that way you aren't paying double for admission.
