When my husband told me about the Walt Disney World trip that we could plan for the fall, I was even more excited than normal. I had never been to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and couldn't wait to experience it - on Halloween night none-the-less! I did my research about the event and knew that I was going to pay a premium for tickets on Halloween night. In 2015, the tickets cost $87 for adults and $82 for kids 3-9. While these are steep ticket prices, I felt that between the 4pm admission to Magic Kingdom, the parade, the fireworks, the candy, and the entertainment I could justify it. Then, the prices for 2016 were released. Seriously?!? At $105 for adults and $100 for kids, I about fainted. Do you know how much I could do in Disney for that money vs. one evening in the Magic Kingdom???

And as for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, I'm missing out on treats, a special parade, unique characters, and HalloWishes to enjoy salty and sweet snacks, an up close view of the Electrical Water Pageant, meet rare Peter Pan characters, and watch HalloWishes - for a lot less money. The cost of the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage is $69 for adults and $41 for kids. I'm excited to "sea" what this new-to-me experience has to offer and I'll save some of my gold doubloons in the process. Ahoy mateys!
