    Is the "Mickeys Not so Scarey" worth spending the extra money on? I am 3 children and I am already spending a ton of money.

    Hi, Kacy! The Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a not-to-be-missed event!  The Magic Kingdom is decked out in its Halloween finest - including ghosts on Main Street, U.S.A. Characters sport their costumes, too.  Guests of all ages attend in costume, but it isn't required.  Because the number of Guests is limited, you can ride almost every attraction during the party time frame, especially if you follow my family's lead and skip the Trick-or-treat locations.  You don't need to have a regular theme park ticket to get into the Magic Kingdom during party hours. One of my favorite tips is that even though Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party officially begins at 7:00 P.M., you can enter the Magic Kingdom as early as 4:00 P.M. using just your party admission ticket.  More fun for your dollar!  


    HalloWishes is the holiday-themed fireworks presentation that you can only see on party nights.  The Boo-to-You parade is one of my family's favorites. Watch for the Haunted Mansion Cast Members; they are my favorite part.  For the last few years, there has been a special treat if you find a spot in Liberty Square just prior to the parade.  Mr. Knickerbocker tells "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."  It ends just as the parade is off to a galloping start.  I don't want to give exact details here, but it is amazing.  Check the website here to watch for the dates to be released.  In years past, there has been an advance purchase discount for most nights, so take advantage of that if you can. Happy haunting!
