    ? re: MNSSHP - it will cost my family of 4 over $200 for this event on top of what we are already spending. DD is 12 and DS is 7 - if we don't do it this year we might miss our chance. Besides trick or treating, what makes this event worth the cost?

    Hi Carol Ann,

    I know the idea of spending extra on an already expensive vacation can make you really stop and think, "Is it really worth it?"  I've asked myself this question many times when traveling to Walt Disney World; I have to say that usually I am quite pleased whenever I have made the decision to splurge on a "special" activity.  It's almost always worth the extra expense.

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is a great event.  Yes, your children will be able to score in the candy department, but you could go to your local Target and get tons of candy for the amount you are paying. 

    When you go to the Halloween party, you'll feel as though you are a part of something special.  The lines to your favorite attractions will be smaller because of the lower crowds.  There is a special parade and fireworks display.  Also, you'll get to see your favorite characters dressed in their Halloween costumes, and you'll have the opportunity to see many of your favorite villains as well.  There is often a special villain show that takes place several times during the party.  Overall, it's a great night, and I think your children are at the age where they can stay for the entire party without getting over tired.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
