    If I have a park ticket during a special event, do I also need a special event ticket to attend?

    Hi Elizabeth, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for sending us your great question.  My family and I always enjoy attending Special Events at Walt Disney World Resort, it gives us extra time to enjoy the Theme Park! 

    Special Events such as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and Disney After Hours do require a separate Special Event Ticket even if you have a Theme Park Ticket for that day.  Special Events typically have much smaller crowds and special experiences which is why a separate ticket is needed.  I do find the Special Events to be worthwhile, my family loves the VIP feel to the evenings and we look forward to the Special Events during our visits to Walt Disney World Resort.  Special Event Tickets can be purchased online or by calling (407) 939-5277.

    I hope you have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort, Elizabeth.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
