    I'm planning to purchase tickets for Mickey's Halloween Party, however wondering if my daugter age 4 will enjoy this or is she too small. Also can you buy costumes there or should we bring them? Are they expensive to buy/ Thanks

    Hi Jill!

    That's a very hard question.  The party doesn't start until 7pm and runs until midnight.  For some children, that's very late and they won't have that much time at the party before they fall asleep.  For others, with a good nap, they can stay up for most of the party.  It really depends on your daughter, and your budget to determine if it's worth it.

    The first parade is generally around 8:30 and the fireworks is generally around 9:15.  Both the parade and the fireworks show are special for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party; you will only see them at the party.  A lot of families leave after the first parade or the fireworks.

    There are princess dresses / costumes sold throughout Walt Disney World.  If your daughter wants to be a Disney princess then you could wait, though my recommendation is to come to Walt Disney World with a costume in hand.  It will probably be less expensive to pick up a costume outside of the parks.

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
