There are several ways to buy tickets for the events but the best place to start online is Anyone planning to go to both this year?


  • @ Thomas Smith

    Is there any word on what is going to be done with the special commemorative MNSSHP pins that will be released this year? My wife and I went to the Party on 10/31/08 and she was able to pick up all of the various pins that were offered; we went last year on 10/23/09 and all of the available pin designs save one were sold out.

    We were told that the pins (and other event merchandise) were put out on the night of the first Party in early September and were kept out for anyone to purchase — instead of being event exclusives sold only during the selected dates, guests who did not actually attend the Party could snap these up whenever; the 2008 pins (which were readily available) went out only on the nights with a Party on schedule.

    It didn’t seem right that guests visiting in October (especially that close to Halloween) wouldn’t even have a shot at them. I understand the nature of limited edition collectibles, and what sort of logistical nightmare is involved in boxing & unboxing the merchandise before and after each Party, but I feel that these should have been made available to the people who paid the extra money to attend the MNSSHP event first, with any remaining stock after the last night then being released to the general public.

    Have there been any discussions about what this year’s policy will be?

  • @ Johanne from QC

    My wife and I visited WDW right after Christmas in 2007, and we were able to catch the MVMCP’s “Once Upon a Christmas” parade during an afternoon trip to the Magic Kingdom (I think it was 12/29/07). It’s obviously not the same as attending the Party and getting the overall experience, but if your interest is in the parade, then yes, you can catch it without having to attend the event.

  • @ Alejandro from Nuevo Leon:

    Both the Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Very Merry Christmas Party are separate “hard ticket” events — your Magic Your Way tickets WILL NOT cover the cost of admission to either of these. You would need to purchase Party tickets for the date(s) that you would like to attend, and then make sure that you have these tickets with you on the night of the event.

  • Why are the Halloween parties starting so late this year? They started at the beginning of September in 07 08 and 09. Next year we were hoping THE MNSSHP WILL START AGAIN EARLY SEPT…PLEASE!!!!! In fact i can only remember the party always in ealry Sept..
    We have gone every year , but this year cause we leave on the 11th 🙁 MNSSHP
    Please bring it back early next year!

  • we will be in Disney for a very brief stay on Nov 18 and Nov 19 – both have MVMCP. Think I would like to purchase tickets at DTD on the 18th for the 19th (in case there is bad weather). What are the chances of Firday November 19th being a sell out?

  • So – whats with Disneyland?

  • We have our tix for MNSSHP & this year our son’s family planned their vacation for part of the time we’ll be there. It will be their first time at the Halloween party, can’t wait!

  • I for one am glad that Disney is starting MNSSHP later in September. We typically visit WDW over Labor day week for our wedding anniversary, a time I still consider to be summer. Last year we were there by Aug 29th and thought for sure we would find MK in all it’s summer glory, only to be disappointed to find Halloween decorations already up. I really don’t understand why anyone would want to celebrate Halloween in September. I love Halloween but the month of October is a long enough time to celebrate it.

  • I attended the Christmas Party last year, so this year decided to see the Halloween one instead. I hear it’s a little more fun than the Christmas Party, so I’m pretty excited!

  • Hi! We are going to Disney on the September dates. We already have the Magic Your Way Tickets. Do we still have to buy the additional tickets to the Party?

  • Do the tickets for the Christmas party sell out? We’re planning to go the 19th but didn’t know if we should purchase tickets this early or if we have the opportunity to wait a while. Thanks!

  • we have been twice to MNSSHP, they are the best!! i am over forty and i love trick or treating with mickey!!

  • We have dinner reservations on September 18 at 6:50 at Liberty Tree Tavern. Will we still be able to eat at that time without purchasing tickets to the Halloween party?

  • Is there any DVC member discount?

  • When will Disneyland’s Halloween parties be posted?

  • Anyone know when the tickets go on sale for Halloween at disneyland? i heard a rumor it will be in the park and not California adventure

  • A separate ticket is needed for the Not so scary Halloween event. And YES!!! they will absolutely sell out for the 31st. I have been the last two years, and always go on Halloween. Its ALWAYS sold out. They put there signs out by the ticketing booths that say “sold out for this event”. I’d definitely recommend buying them WAY early!

  • Does anyone know if there is a difference in MVMCP on the dates you cannot get advance ticket purchase price?

  • Our family will be in Disney World for the halloween party. We have purchased park hopper passes. Will we have to purchase a separate ticket for the Not So Scary Halloween Party on Oct 31?

  • Does anyone know if the tickets sell out on Oct. 31st? Since there is no discount for advanced purchase, I would rather wait till that day to purchase just in case someone is sick or people are too tired. Thank you. Stacy

  • Have tried to order for both parties but will not allow me. I live in the UK. Has told me billing address will not allow? Why can I not do it as I have in previous years. Have purchased at passholder rates. This is not showing. Will they.

  • When will the passholder rates and dates be announced for these two parties?

  • My husband and I plan to take our 3 y/o son to both the Halloween and Christmas party this year! My husband and I attended the Christmas party last year and had a blast, and really want to check out the Halloween party too! This year we feel that our son is finally old enough to join us. We’re going to have so much fun!!

  • I got tickets for MICKEY NOT SO SCARY HALLOWEEN. This is her first time and I lost track for me. I got them for my 40th birthday and I can’t wait to show her fun TRICK OR TREATING WITH MICKEY

  • We are flying to Orlando from San Diego on the 20th of December. So there will be no Christmas Party that week Tom?

    • Hmmm…Sunday, 12/19 is the latest date –

  • Agree with Jason, would love to see the Halloween parties start in the begining of September as well or even last week of August. My family attended the Halloween party last year and it was great. Have been to the X-mas pary as well and it is great. This year we are using our DVC membership to attend the X-Mas party in and parks in mid December. Can’t wait!!!

  • Why hasn’t Disney posted the park hours for December yet? We will be setting up the Advanced Dining here in a couple of weeks and would like to know which parks are doing the Extra magic hours.

  • very disappointed there won’t be a Halloween Party the week of labor day this year like there was in the past. We booked our vacation that week specifically to go to the Halloween Party. It would have been our first time getting to go. 🙁

  • Can someone help me and let me know why ticket prices have not been released for select dates? I will be going to Disney on October with friend and wanted to go on the 28th, is there a reason we can’t buy in advance yet? Thanks for any help

    • Hi Josh…yes, you can buy tickets for the 28th now. Here’s the direct link:

  • We are planning on being in the park one of the weeks in December. We have regular theme park tickets but may not be getting the Party tickets (not sure we will have the extra $$). Does that mean that our days in the park will be cut short since the party starts at 7? (will we have to leave the park when the party starts?) or is the party just zoned off to one section of the park?

    • Hi Sherri…The park closes promptly at 7pm. There’s a short period of transition with the Guests. If you have dinner reservations, restaurant Cast will escort you out of the park (but the experience will not be cut short).

  • Speaking of tickets. Any new info on the rumor of monthly payments fr annual passes? I’m holdin off on my renewal as long as I can in order for the announcement to be made!!! Please Disney make he announcement!!!! Lol

  • When will they release dates and line up for Candlelight Processional?

    • Checking on this, Sammie. We’ll post that info here on the blog too.

  • Hi, we’re going to be at WDW on dec 20. thru dec. 27. We were told that we don’t need to buy those special ticket for “Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party” that from the 23rd to 31th we’re able to see that parade for free (with the day pass).
    Can you told me if it’s true or not ?
    Thank you

  • Does anyone know what the difference between the Christmas & Halloween Party is? I have been to the Halloween party for the last 3 years. I would like to go to the Christmas one this year. 🙂

  • Will we be getting the dates for Disneyland soon, too?

  • Do you have to also purchase a ticket to the theme park in order to attend? Or is the party ticket sufficient?

    • Hi Jessica…the party ticket is sufficient.

  • Just purchased our tickets yesterday for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. So excited! My husband and I haven’t been in over 10 years and it’s our boys (3 &1) first trip! Looking forward to it!

  • I’d love to go to both, unfortunatelly as I’m from Portugal I’m just going to Mickey’s Very Mery Xmas Party. I Went last year and loved it, is this year going to be the same or will it have some changes?

  • Why are the Halloween parties starting so late this year? They started at the beginning of September in 08 and 09. Next year we were hoping to come to WDW in september for the Halloween party, but we have to leave on the 12th. Are the parties likely to start late next year too?
    Went to MNSSHP last year and loved it! What fun!
