What’s the best bang for you buck? A full day at Magic Kingdom, MNSSHP or MVMCP?
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) are great ways to see the magic of the holidays. However, the tickets to these events are not included in your regular theme park admission.
Therefore, a family looking to enjoy the parks on days that surround the party need to decide if it’s worth it to spend a day at the park and leave early, attend the evening party from 4 until midnight, or go on a different day even if it’s more crowded.
First, the tickets to the special event parties went up in price this year. Tickets range in price from $72 to $95 depending which dates you select. For the purpose of comparison, we are using an average date for MNSSHP (September 30th), which is $79 for adults and $74 for children. This brings the cost to $325.90 for a family of 4 to attend for 8 hours (entry at 4pm, party from 7pm-12am).
Compare this to a one-day trip to Walt Disney World for September 30th 2016 (because tickets are now tiered according to the day you plan to go). The cost is about $234 per couple or $455 for 2 adults and 2 children for one day. Since the park is only open from 9am until 7pm that day for those who don’t have a ticket for the party, the cost to attend the party is technically less than going to the park for one day for 10 hours.
There are many elements included in MNSSHP and MVMCP that you can’t get from a regular day in the parks.
BONUS PERKS OF THE PARTIES:
- Lower crowds. The parties only have a limited number of tickets for sale so you will be able to experience more per hour.
- Lower cost. If you are looking at a one-day ticket, you can save approximately $125.
- Special fireworks. Party nights have special edition fireworks (HalloWishes and Holiday Wishes) that are not available to guests who don’t go to the party. However if you go on a non-party night you will still get to see the traditional Wishes fireworks display.
Of course, if you have multi-day park tickets and the option of visiting the Magic Kingdom for a full day on a non-party night, you can save money and still have plenty of time to see and do everything you want. The biggest difference is missing out on the party perks.
You will save the most money and time by visiting MNSSHP or MVMCP if you were only planning on going to the Magic Kingdom for one day.
