    How do you purchase a special ticket event if you already have a ticket in combination with a Disney resort hotel?

    Hi, Emily!

    Thanks so much for sending this great question about Special Event Tickets at Walt Disney World

    There are so many magical opportunities to enjoy something different throughout the year at Walt Disney World, with Special Events that feature entertainment, nighttime spectaculars, and character appearances that you just can't find at any other time in the theme parks. Getting a glimpse of the fun is easy, too!

    On the Walt Disney World website, hover over "Parks & Tickets", then click on "Special Event Tickets". There, you can click on an event that interests you and make your purchase. If you had a certain party in mind that is not yet listed, check back a little later, as tickets will not be available until all of the fun dates and details have been finalized. 

    For instance, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party truly transforms Magic Kingdom Park into a Halloween haven that's...well...not so scary! If you're a fan of certain Disney Halloween characters, this is the party for you. When I visited, Jack Skellington and Sally were the highlight of my night. And Haunted Mansion during a Halloween Party? Ghoulishly ghastly.

    We're also fans of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, where the lights, music--and "SNOW" on Main Street, USA--put everyone right into the holiday spirit. There is nothing quite like it anywhere else in the World! (You can even tell Santa what you wish for...so be good, for goodness sake.)

    Once you purchase your Special Event ticket, you can link that in your My Disney Experience account. Then, once you open that account online, or open your My Disney Experience mobile app, you'll see that special ticket listed under "My Plans" and on your Calendar, too.

    Happy planning, Emily! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them; we love to help!
