Countdown to Disney World

I am now 27 days out from my next Disney World adventure! I can't wait!

I am so excited about this trip because I have never been to Disney in the "fall" or really anytime other than Spring or Summer except those 2 days in December.

What makes this a really special time to go is it's the first week of the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! One of my bucketlist goals is to go to every Disney park but another goal is to go at every special event/holiday and this is another one off the list.

I have done a lot of reading on the MNSSHP and heard it's well worth the extra money. You have to buy a ticket to this Magic Kingdom event and it's about $40 I think, I can't remember. But on the day of the party, the MK closes at 6 or 7 I believe and only ticket holders are allowed in the park for the parade, party, trick or treating, special fireworks and you can still ride the rides and there are tons of characters to meet & greet with. Basically you can get A LOT done cause there are not as many people in the parks.

I am very excited about all the Halloween decorations that will be all over the park and also excited about seeing the headless horseman in the parade. I have heard it's a must- see!

Have any of you ever been to Disney at Halloween?

Nope, but Addy is going for her 5th birthday, at the end of October, so I am contemplating buying her some tickets to this for her birthday. How awesome would it be as a 5 year old to trick or treat in Disney World??

They have this at DL too. I really want to go, it seems like such a unique fun time.

I've been to the Halloween Days, at Disneyland and seen the Haunted Mansion turned into The Nightmare before Christmas. It is soo sooo fun!!! My birthday is October 30th and in 2009 they were letting Southern California residents go for free on their Birthday. I dragged my daughter out of school and we went and had a blast. We even took pictures with Cruella Deville. For a few years we had annual passes that really paid for themselves. I haven't been to Florida and Disneyworld. I made jokes that I wanted to go for my 50th (which is coming up) but it wasn't in the cards this year. It's still a dream of mine. :) Have a blast!

Here is a link to our visit in 2009
