    Thinking of attending the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party in October.  Will a 13 and 16 year old enjoy this event or is it geared for younger childen?

    Hi, Donna!  I wanted to answer your question because I am traveling without my 18 year old daughter right now, and I just got a text message from her asking when our Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween tickets are for, because she wants to make sure to put it on her calendar so she doesn't miss it due to school activities!

    The best thing about the party is that the crowds are very manageable, and we always feel like we can do more rides than during a normal park day.  We have done Splash Mountain multiple times in one evening and Big Thunder Mountain a few times as well.

    The kids - even the 18 year old and the big kid that resembles the guy standing next to me in all of my wedding pictures - love the trick or treating.  They give everyone a treat bag, and I think it's the one time my oldest doesn't feel like she has to act all grown up and sophisticated.  She gets absolutely giddy over a bag of trick or treat candy.

    My oldest doesn't care if she sees the parade or not, but she loves the ride of the Headless Horseman that takes place before the parade.  And she likes the fireworks.

    I think for teenagers, it's a fun evening of endless rides combined with the joy of candy.  They can even dress in costume if they want, and they will see other people from children to adult in costume.

    Have a great trip!
