    How old is too old for MNSSHP? My husband, myself and my 17 year old daughter will be visiting during September and are wondering if this would be something we would be interested in.

    Hi Julene,
    Thanks for the great question! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Alright, let me be really honest with you...I'm a thirty-something mom with Annual Passes to the Walt Disney World Resort...and I paid to go Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) three times last year. It's that good! Here are my favorite parts:

    *Seeing guests of all ages dressed up in creative and fun costumes. Many are not expensive or elaborate but very imaginative. One of my favorites from last year: a party of seven wearing white t-shirts with the days of the week on the back and 3-D shark hats. Can you guess what they were? Shark Week. It was great!

    *Mickey's "Boo To You" Halloween Parade-one of the best parades the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer, full of villains, spooks and characters dressed up for Halloween.

    *Minimal crowds-this special event has only a limited number of tickets. What does this mean for you? Shorter lines and less waiting! I rode Big Thunder Mountain Railroad three times in a row last year (in the dark, which is my favorite)!

    *Trick-or-treating is really fun and you get TONS of candy! I think my family of four logged in about ten pounds from our visit last year. We bring drawstring backpacks to help carry around our loot. Even if you just hit a few hot spots (the areas around Splash Mountain and the trail between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland are great high-density areas), you'll have a lot of sweet treats to enjoy all night long.

    *And finally, my favorite...Happy HalloWishes, quite possibly the best fireworks display of the year!

    Julene, if any of this sounds appealing to you, I would suggest attending the party. It's a lot of fun and I think you and your daughter might have a really good time. 

    Best HalloWishes,
    Amy B.
