  • when will disneyland announce their party dates

  • Any idea when ADR will be extended for MNSSHP?? I have called twice a day since the tickets went on sale and no one seems to know when this will happen!! We are going on September 1st so it is less than 90 days away!!!

  • Tickets are now on sale! Just purchased mine 🙂 sooo happy!

  • Im soooo excited. Can hardly wait to purchase the tickets!!!
    Tick tock tick tock…”just watching the hours tick by” 🙂

  • “Tickets are scheduled to go on sale in early May.” When is “Early May?”

  • Hi, does anyone have any idea when MVMCP tickets will be on sale i bought mine for last year on 5th May 2016 so was hoping they would be on sale now.

  • May be they will post ticket in the morning for parry will see.

  • Wait… when this was first posted, the first Mickeys Christmas Party was on 11/08 and now it is showing 11/09?!?! I booked my trip to go to both parties but now will be missing the Christmas party. What happened?

  • How much are the tickets usually to both parties?

  • So excited to see the dates. I have 15 very excited children and 14 very excited adults just waiting for the tickets to go on sale. I’ll keep watching!!

  • Are these the dates for November 2018 party? This will be my first time in the parks outside the summer and I am SO excited for the Halloween party. When will tickets go on sale?

  • We are so excited for the Halloween event cant wait to get tickets

  • Would love to know Disneyland dates, why do those always come so much later?

  • Hi, any idea when the MVMCP tickets will go on sale? This will be our first time attending at Christmas. We are so excited!!!

  • Frustrated as well about the November 1st date and the fact that the Christmas party dates first were posted as the first one on December 8th and then changed to the 9th. Makes planning a trip so far in advance (due to DVC 7 & 11 month mark and dining at 180 days) beyond frustrating.

  • Going to MVMCP (second time) on December 15! So excited!

  • I;m kinda bummed the they added Halloween the day after Halloween which pushes the christmas party back further. Thats longer I have to book my stay if I want to attend both parties which cots me more 🙁

  • Thank you so much for letting us know about these dates. Do you happen to know if Club Villian will be back again at Hollywood Studios this year, and if so what dates?

  • when will the Disneyland dates get released?

  • Susan, It mentions tickets go on sale early May for the Halloween Party. 😀

  • Very exciting but #help!

    Tried to make ADR during MNSSHP but all Table Service restaurants only have inventory available until early park close. No reservations are available during the Special Ticketed Event.

    I connected with three different cast members over the phone and neither of them had any indication on when dining will be available.

    By when and how do you recommend I go about trying to secure a reservation at BoG? It would be amazing to have an audience with The Beast himself during MNSSHP

  • Hi. When do the MNSSHP Tickets go on sale?

  • Can’t wait to go to the Christmas Party. This will be my third time and it gets better every year. My son has seen it twice and I can’t wait for my daughter to see it. Her first trip is this November.

  • I am so excited! Been waiting for this info since the first of the year! Can’t wait to attend our first Halloween party in early October!

  • I’m so, so excited!!!! I’ve been checking every day! My family is coming for Thanksgiving and can’t wait to go to the Christmas party!

  • YES! Been waiting for this post since January! Can’t wait to attend my first Christmas Party!
