    Hi! I am planning a 2 week vacation and trying to check if its possible to attend both (MNSSHP and MVMCP). If I'm right, if I do the last Halloween party, it could be possible, right? Also, I would like to know how does it work! Thanx!

    Hi Nathalia,

    You are correct. If the parties are scheduled as they have been in the past, you should be able to plan your visit to attend both Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. The 2013 dates have not been announced yet, but in 2012, the last Halloween party was on Nov. 2 and the first Christmas party was on Nov. 9.

    That time of year is fascinating at Walt Disney World, particularly at Magic Kingdom, site of both special parties. The Halloween decorations disappear and the Christmas decorations appear almost overnight, as if by magic.

    Both parties are similar in set-up, though different in theme. On party days, Magic Kingdom closes early to guests without tickets to the party. Each party includes special parades, fireworks and themed activities such as trick-or-treating or snow on Main Street.

    One of the best highlights: admission is limited. So there are smaller crowds and shorter lines for rides and attractions.

    I expect the schedules to be announced any day now. Last year, tickets to both parties went on sale on May 1. You can keep an eye on the websites linked above or on the Disney Parks Blog for the announcement. Or check back with us here at the Moms Panel.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you. Enjoy your visit!
