    I am trying to decide if it is worth taking my 3 and 2 year old to the MNSSHP and leave after the parade so they are not up too late. Is it worth taking them at this age? or is it better to make sure they get a good night sleep?

    Hi Melissa,

    I totally understand wanting to get the most out of our vacations, and experience as much as we possibly can, however I would suggest waiting on the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this time.  First of all, I'm with you...a good nights sleep goes a long way when at Walt Disney World, secondly you will have to buy admission for yourself and the three year old, Id take the money you save and buy a few extra souvenirs! 

    The party is great, but until they are old enough to appreciate the candy and the added opportunity to ride main attractions, it might be best to wait.  At this age, they won't know what they are missing if you skip it!

    Hope this helps!
