For more details about what goes on at each party as well as tips for those nights at the Magic Kingdom, check out our Guide for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and our Guide for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The lineup and specifics on those pages are for 2013, but it gives you a good overview of what to expect, as Disney doesn’t drastically change the party from year to year. Plus, the tips apply to every year. We will update those pages with the 2014 details as soon as they are announced.

Tickets start at $62 for the Halloween Party and $67 for the Christmas Party, and prices will vary depending on the popularity of the night. There are usually Annual Passholder and other sorts of discounts available, so look out for those. To buy tickets, check out Disney’s website: Halloween Tickets. Christmas Tickets.

If you’re having trouble deciding between the two parties, I personally prefer the Halloween party. Both are a ton of fun, but the Boo to You Parade is probably my favorite parade I’ve ever seen at Disney World. They give away a good variety of candy, vs the cocoa and cookies at the Christmas Party. Plus, seeing other guests dressed up in costume brings a whole other level of fun. Both of these parties can be a great time, but if I had to choose just one, I’d go for the Halloween party, hands down.
