YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS!!! It is totally worth it! This year will be our 8th year in a row, and we wouldn't miss it. IMO, it is the best special event at WDW (I did the MVMCP this year for the first time and while it was nice, it can't hold a candle to MNSSHP). If you really want to get into it and dress in a costume, it is even more fun! There is trick or treating, a FANTASTIC parade (and normally I am not a parade person), special fireworks, special characters, and just an all around fun-spooky feeling at MK in the dark for Halloween. Also, even if the party is sold out (like ours was in 2012), the crowds are not bad at all. We waited in line no more than 15 minutes for any ride (and we did almost everything). The candy lines can look long, but they move continuously, so we always had less than a 5 minute wait in those too. Enjoy! I hope you decide to go.

This was out third year to do the MNSSHP. Even in a down pour, we still loved it. Remember this is a hard ticket and is in addition to regular tickets even annual passes. It is well worth the added cost.

We loved it. Besides being a cool experience seeing adults running around in costume, the parade was spectacular and the fireworks and light show played out against the castle was unbelievable. We definitely thought it was worth the extra money.

I'm not a parade person either but MNSSHP is my absolute fav parade ever!!! It's also one of the rare occasions you can see all the Dwarfs out at once & nothing compares to riding HM during a party night!!!!

While it was fun I wouldn't do it ever year but it's a must try event if you've never been before!

We think it's totally worth it and always go and see it whenever we're down at Disney at that time of the year.

We love it and the reason we go to WDW in the fall! Aprox $60pp I estimate this year. There is always the chance for rain but you take your chances!
I believe its the best castle fireworks Disney has, love the evil characters -nicely decorated all over-get take pics-etc

We loved it! My husband and I have been twice. It's so much fun! I recommend seeing the second parade because it's less crowds. We didn't ride any rides because we wanted to see all the characters, the Villians show in front of the castle, make sure to get your photo taken by the Haunted Mansion, there's so much to do! Have fun planning!

Absolutely worth it! Remember even though the ticket says 7pm to midnight you can get in the park as early as 4pm for this event. You will recieve a wristband & this will only allow Halloween guests to ride, enter dance parties, get candy or even see characters. Thats their way of making sure regular park guest leave at 6 so lines become shorter. Its an awesome.... awesome event not to be missed!

I was really on the fence about it. It was me DH, DD18 and DS9. I am so glad we did it. It was so much fun!! We've decided to do it again this year.

We dressed up in costumes, did the 2nd parade (awesome!!!), trick or treat stations, saw the fireworks and we did rides we hadn't done before. It was well worth the extra funds.
