    Do you think the Not So Scary Halloween Party is worth doing? We are 2 older adults wondering if we should spend the money.

    Hey Sherry!

    I can sum up my answer in one word: ABSOLUTELY! The special holiday parties are a great time to tour the Magic Kingdom with low crowds and meet characters who aren't normally available for meet 'n' greets. As an added bonus for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party: You can ONLY see Mickey's "Boo-To-You" Halloween Parade and Happy HalloWishes fireworks during the party. It is not offered any other time unlike Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and Holiday Wishes which are offered everyday during Christmas Week after the parties have ended.

    If you look at it from a purely monetary aspect, I feel the holiday parties offer a much bigger 'bang for your buck'. What many people don't know is you can actually enter the Magic Kingdom at 4:00 p.m. with your party ticket giving you an extra three hours. Due to the low crowd levels, this will give you a total of eight hours to experience exponentially more of the attractions then you can on a normal day with normal crowd levels.

    I don't know about you but there is something extra *MAGICAL* about visiting the parks when the crowds are light. If you have any more questions about the special holiday parties or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
