    Going to MNNSHP for first time. Do you know how many tickets are sold each night?

    Hi Jaynee,

    Disney does not release official numbers for park capacity or the number of tickets sold for specific events. That being said, there are a number of educated guesses out there, so this is what I'm sharing. 

    Most estimates say that the maximum number of tickets sold for each night of the Magic Kingdom parties (Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party) is about 30,000. Contrast this with an estimated maximum capacity of the Magic Kingdom in the range of 80,000 to 100,000.

    With less than half the number of guests in the park than on a busy day, the parties are substantially less crowded than you might experience at other times. There is rarely a wait for rides during the parties. Also note that some nights of the parties do sell out. The actual night of Halloween typically sells out a few weeks in advance. If you're sure you want to go to the party, you should plan to buy your tickets early.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
