    Hi Erin! Taking my boyfriend on his 1st trip to WDW (it's my 25th) 9/25-10/02. I've never been to Mickey's Halloween Party but, I'm sure I'd love it. Do you think at 30 yr old man would enjoy it or should we skip it? Thanks!

    When I've been at the Magic Kingdom nighttime parties, there are always plenty of grown men there that look like they're having a great time. And I can certainly tell you that this 40-something mom had spooktacular fun when I went to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party last year. Let me tell you some of the Party events that kids of all ages (even 30 year old men) might enjoy:

    - The vast majority of the park's rides will be open. Because the number Party tickets is limited, there are usually greatly reduced lines for the rides. I was able to walk onto Buzz Lightyear three times in a row.

    - Special Halloween-themed parade and fireworks

    - Unlimited trick-or-treating (with goood candy). Where else does a grown-up get to gather a sack full of treats?

    - The people watching is incredible. Many guests where interesting and elaborate costumes.

    - There are character meet-and-greets with characters who do not otherwise visit the parks -- particularly villains.

    - Special party-only merchandise is for sale.

    - Free face painting (hey, I think it's cool)

    I say you should tell your boyfriend to relax and take his best girl to the party!
