Disney Seasonal / Holiday Events

disney halloweenSpending a holiday at Disney World can make your trip even more magical.  Disney definitely goes all out with additional theming and events for park-goers during specific times of the year.  By far our favorite time of the year to visit Disney is October.  Not only are the crowds lighter, prices lower, and weather cooler but we LOVE going to Disney during the Halloween season.  This gives us a chance to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party held at the Magic Kingdom.  This event is held after the park closes (7:00 PM) and requires a separate ticket to attend.  Tickets are limited and during peak times it will sell out.  Most of the attractions remain open during the ‘party’ and you are allowed to wear a costume.  You get to trick or treat at special stations throughout the park, mingle with lots of sinister characters and enjoy a special parade and fireworks show!  More info and ticket information can be found here:

Tip – If you have little ones (ages 5 and under) then this event may not be for you.  It begins relatively late at night and some kids are just too tired to get through it.  It also has some content that may be scary to kids.  Viewer discretion…

Tip – Most of the seasonal/holiday events are expensive to attend.  If you are on a tight budget we recommend staying away from these events and concentrating on other ‘free’ forms of entertainment offered by Disney.

    I guess you didn’t know that if you have a ticket for either the Halloween Party or Christmas Party you can actually enter the park as early as 4pm, without a regular park ticket. Making attending the party actually cheaper than going to the Magic Kingdom. It’s a good way to save a little money (about $25 a person I think) if you’re going to be there for a few days given that the wait times are usually much shorter so you can cover more ground these nights.

    Thanks for the tip – I did not know that! When I have gone to the MNSSP or X-mas Party we have always gone to Magic Kingdom for the day first and stayed for the party. Maybe next time we will just go at 4:00!
