Want to Party at Walt Disney World? Buy Your Tickets (Now on Sale)!

I just wanted to post a quick reminder that as of today, May 1st, tickets for Walt Disney World’s (“WDW”) very popular holiday parties, Mickey’s Not Scary Halloween Party (“MNSSHP”) and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (“MVMCP”), are now officially on sale and can be purchased on the Disney website (see links below) or by phone at (407) WDISNEY.

Party Time!

These parties are “hard ticket events;” i.e. they require a separate ticket for entry to the party as it is not included with your regular park admission.

However, certain party nights offer a discount on the admission ticket for advance purchases, available to everyone; Annual Passholders (“APs”), who can purchase up to 4 discounted tickets; and Disney Vacation Club (“DVC”) members, who can buy up to 6 discounted tickets. There are usually discounts available for military personnel as well, and I would suggest calling Disney directly for purchasing these tickets.

What Will You Be?

I also want to make mention that all adults, as well as children, are welcome to attend the parties in full costume — with a few caveats: 1) You cannot impersonate any of the characters and 2) costumes cannot be “obtrusive or offensive;” i.e. no full face masks, no items that would encumber you on a ride, and nothing too risque, etc. Obviously utilizing your best judgment — and remembering that you are in Walt Disney World! — is your best gauge for choosing a costume. :-P

See? Adults can dress up too!

Also, remember to keep in mind the time of year you will be attending either party. Florida weather can be especially unpredictable; September and October can be hot and humid to mild or rainy whereas November and December can be hot, mild, or downright cold!

DH and I like to use festive accessories to get into the holiday spirit instead of full-fledged costumes. Themed t-shirts and/or make-up, headwear, jewelry, etc. doesn’t expend a lot of space should we decide not to wear them, or, if we do use them, they’re more comfortable if, for example, the weather decides not to cooperate.

A good planning tool for trying to decide what party night you might want to attend is the historical weather data (use “Kissimmee, FL” for your search) for that date. This should give you a better idea of what would make an appropriate costume to ensure you will enjoy the evening comfortably! (Just make sure you double-check the weather forecast before heading down on your trip — so you can make any adjustments as needed.)

Also, remember that this doesn’t just apply to MNSSHP. Many folks dress festively — think jingle bells to reindeer or Santa hats! — for MVMCP as well! ;-)

What are good suggestions for grown-up (but family-friendly!) costumes?

DH and I will be attending one of this year’s MNSSHP, and we’re really excited because it’s been awhile since our last one! While we’ve been fortunate enough to attend the last couple MVMCPs, MNSSHP really is our favorite! I mean who doesn’t love “free” (ignoring the whole “cost of the ticket” thing!) candy? YUM!

Which party will you be attending?

Good luck getting tickets for your trip this year if you’re lucky enough to be visiting in the autumn! Tickets don’t usually sell out as soon as they go on sale, but keep in mind that those parties — the ones scheduled closer to the actual holidays — are the busier party nights and have a higher potential to eventually sell out (read: “Premium Nights”)! :-D

So, until next time…

    Hi there! Nice to meet you. That's a nice name. Oh, interesting; that sounds like a fun job. You're from where? Really? No, I'm kidding...really? How do you spell that?? Oooh, me? I'm Kelly. I am a full-time Disney daydreamer, planner, and, now, blogger. In the *real* world, somewhere near Detroit, MI, I tend to be be ever busy solving life's daily conundrums, serving up vacation planning advice, or simply somehow saving the day (aren't we all?). As for my love of Disney, I share that with my DH, as well as our furry "kids;" although, perhaps, they don't love it quite as much as we do! In any event, since our "little ones" can't accompany us to Walt Disney World each year, we have discovered so many of the fun and wonderful experiences available to us adult-only travelers -- and I am so thrilled to share all of this with you! ** So, last time, you'll never believe what they had...
