Tickets – For those unfamiliar with Disney parties, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a hard-ticketed event. You’ll need more than just your park admission if you plan on trick-or-treating your way down Main Street. Though this year’s ticket prices haven’t been announced just yet, last year’s price tag of $72-105 for adults and $67-100 for children 3-9 should give you a pretty good idea of how much you’ll need to budget. (Children under 3 are free.)

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – Spend a Wintry evening enjoying this blend of Disney magic with classic Christmas traditions. Watch the snow fall down Main Street no matter the temperature and see jolly Old St. Nick as part of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade. Wind down your evening by snuggling up with some cookies and hot cocoa while taking in special Christmas versions of  Magic Kingdom’s nighttime fireworks display. Nobody does Christmas quite like Disney and with special holiday touches around every corner,  you’ll be singing carols in no time.
