    If we come for Halloween next year, how soon can we buy tickets for the Mickey trick or treat party? I have heard they sell out and I do not want to miss them

    Hey Howdy Hey Marge, 

    I am so excited to have you stop back at planDisney with your question. Planning Walt Disney World Resort vacations in the last few months of the calendar are my favorite. Not only do I get to escape the inevitable cold weather that creeps into the midwest around that time, but it also means I can visit the theme parks and Disney Resorts during the holidays. It truly is the most wonderful time of the yEAR! 

    I can understand wanting to time a visit to hit both the Halloween festivities and the start of the Christmas season. The good news is, there is a short window where you can enjoy both if you are not limited to specific travel dates on your own schedule. My suggestion would be to select the day before Halloween as your arrival date and plan on at least a week's stay. While we are a little early for any announcement on whether Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take place next year, if it sticks to past timing, you would be able to enjoy the party, and all the bootiful decorations, on Halloween night. Then, and this is again assuming that Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will return, you should be able to join in on the merriment of the first holiday party before heading back home. 

    Should the parties not occur next year, or you prefer not to attend, you will still be able to enjoy the fall decorations, entertainment and treats for a day or two before Mickey Mouse's elves show up and begin decking Main Street U.S.A. While an early November visit will mean that not all of the lights will be strung or the halls decked yet, you will be able to enjoy the beginning steps of the Christmas holiday season  with Magic Kingdom typically going first, followed by the remaining theme parks, then the Disney Resorts and Disney Springs. The longer you can extend your stay into November, the more of the holiday merriment you will be able to enjoy. 

    As a reminder, the Halloween and Christmas parties are special ticket events that occur at Magic Kingdom and are extremely popular. Therefore, once dates are announced, I strongly suggest purchasing tickets if you wish to join the festivities. Most dates sell out well in advance - especially Halloween night itself. I hope this helps you squeeze in as much spooktacular fun and holiday joy that you possibly can. If I can assist with any additional planning questions, please stop back and see me

    Hope to see ya real soon,
