It’s Time to Party by Laurie Schaerer

Can you believe the dates for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Part7 2015 have been announced?! I get excited just thinking about attending.

What? You’ve never been to one of the Holiday Parties at Magic Kingdom? Well, we need to talk. I’ve been to both, and I definitely recommend…….either one. They’re both so different, but they do both require purchasing a party ticket for each member of your family.
Let’s start with (MNSSHP). If you plan a Walt Disney World vacation between certain dates in Sept and Oct, you can attend MMNSSHP on select nights in Magic Kingdom. (As a bonus, EPCOT is also hosting the International Food and Wine Festival during this time). The parks and resorts are all dressed up in fall finery to add to the festive feeling. The Party events begin at 7:00 p.m. and last until 12. Kids of all ages can come in costume, and collect Halloween goodies from different locations in Magic Kingdom . The Boo to You Parade gives Disney’s Villain’s a chance to party in the streets with The Headless Horseman leading the way. Then hang onto your spot for Hallowishes Fireworks. That’s a treat in itself. This party is scary good fun.

Now, do you prefer the sights and sounds of Christmas? Then Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) might be just what you need. Around the second week of November, Walt Disney World transforms, almost overnight, from fall fun to winter wonderland. (Another highlight of this season is Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). Like MNSSHP, the fun begins at 7:00 p.m. and lasts until 12:00 a.m. Snow in Florida? Well, it does on Main Street during MVMCP. Grab a cup of hot chocolate and some warm cookies from select locations and enjoy watching the snowfall. Disney Characters are decked out in their Christmas finest for Mickey’s Once Upon a Time Christmas Parade. Since it is Christmas, you know Santa’s bound to show up, too. It’s hard to find a time when Cinderella Castle looks more beautiful than when she’s dressed up for Holiday Wishes Fireworks Show.

You just can’t go wrong with either choice you make. However, just to make sure, why don’t you try Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party next year. I’m sure the folks at Disney won’t mind.
