    My daughter (2.5), husband, and I will be traveling to WDW 9/24-9/28. Would my 2.5 year old get much out of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party? What activities does the party entail? I keep debating about whether its worth the extra cost. Thanks!

    Hi, Lena!

    I am loving this question because my family and I just had a huge discussion on this topic!  I first took my kids to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party when my kids were 2 and 5.   I have to be honest, they really did not enjoy it at all at that age.   While there really is nothing scary at the party, but for some reason they found the fog machines, the parade, and the characters in Halloween costumes to be overwhelming.  It is funny to them now, at ages 12 and 9 they can't believe they made us leave after 1 hour!

    Now, that said, I am sure there are plenty of families with young kids who love the trick-or-treating and all the fall fun.  There is also a special fireworks display, dance parties, and a stage show with the villains.  If your princess is a night owl, loves Halloween, and you can squeeze it into your budget, you might want to give it a try.  If you have any doubts, leave this for something to enjoy in a few years when you can party and trick-or-treat until midnight!

    Whatever you decide, have a great vacation and Happy Halloween!
