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.

Tickets – Like the Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the Christmas party takes place from 7pm – 12am. Tickets must be purchased separately from park admission. Though costs for this year have not yet been released the prices for 2016 were $86- $99 for adults and $81-94 for children aged 3-9 ( Children under 3 are free.) Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party may add of bit of weight to your Disney budget but with so many holiday festivities jam-packed into one special evening it’s a worthy addition to any Disney World vacation.
