    Hello, when is it suspected that the Christmas party will start in 2024? I’m only staying for 2 weeks and was hoping to go to both Not so Scary and the Christmas party. Thanks!

    Hey there Rebecca and welcome to planDisney. I am so glad you stopped by with this question about visiting the "place where dreams come true" for both Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Being able to book a holiday that captures Mickey and his crew dressing up for both Halloween and Christmas is truly magical and I am green with envy about your trip.

    If Special Event ticket sales are similar in 2024 as they were this year then you should expect tickets for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party to be announced in April and go on sale in May while tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will go on sale in late June or July. Release dates may vary if you are staying on the property or not. I recommend you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more information as it gets closer to the dates.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular and Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show are enchanted pyrotechnic. I think Tinker Bell has something to do with their sparkle. A suggestion; the view down Main Street, U.S.A., is just as good as those directly in front of Cinderella Castle so no need to rush to the front to see the show. My favorite spot is on the road between Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and Casey's Corner.

    Rebecca, your trip next year will truly be spectacular. Please feel free to drop by planDisney for more tips or write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
