DisFanChat Asks: Disney Halloween Edition
This week’s Mouse Fan Mondays is going to be a bit different. If you aren’t aware, VeraVise WOW Travel and Moment Mom also host a weekly Twitter party along with help from Nomad by Trade, MySoCalStyle, and The MouSeekers. In light of the upcoming Halloween holiday, I thought we would highlight our recent Halloween in the Parks Twitter party .
Welcome to the first edition of DisFanChat Asks! Let’s begin!

DisFanChat asks: “Is going to MHP or MNSSHP worth the price of the tickets?”
“If you are only going to the party, it is def worth it! There are lower crowds, rare characters, candy, villains.”
“I think it should be done at least once. Would do it again on a lower attendance night and/or with military or AP discount.”
“I sooo want to love parties. Been to both MNSSHP and MVMCP several times each. Just too much money for what you get for us.”
Another respondent decided to hit the high seas for Halloween,
“Ack! We are opting to NOT go this year... But only because we will be on the Disney Cruise Halloween on the High Seas the next day.”
The cost of the 2017 MNSSHP is $94 for adults and $89 for children. This would be in addition to the daily ticket price. We recommend you only purchase party tickets on the day you attend. The party begins at 7pm, but ticket holders are allowed entry at 4pm giving you extra time to enjoy the parks before the party without the cost of an additional ticket.

DisFanChat asks, “Halloween seems to be all about the villains. Which is your favorite villain experience?
“We met Dr. Facilier one year and last year my daughter had such a great time meeting Cruela De Vil”
“My son loved meeting Jafar!”
“Not necessarily a villain, but love the 7 dwarves meet and greet!”
In case you aren’t aware, the only way to meet all 7 Dwarfs is at either the MNSSHP or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
DisFanChat asks, “Do you ride the rides during the party or just do the special stuff like parades and characters?”
“When I went, it was my honeymoon and I was pregnant so I waddled around to every candy stand and character I could find!”
“We try to do a little bit of everything, try not to miss all the party exclusive things! Characters in costumes, yes please!”
“Rides! When else can you walk on space/thunder mountain! It only took 3 candy stops to fill our bag and we fit in parade/fireworks too!”
“A bit of both. First time we did all the special stuff. Next time we concentrated on rides because we hardly get to go to WDW”
We recommend that families do try to do a little bit of both. After all, you paid extra for the exclusives!
The opportunity to eat special treats for my food allergic kids makes the snacks especially important. One respondent in the Twitter party advised that the family eat a good meal before attending the party because, otherwise, they will be all sugared up. But, I'm pretty sure that's what it's all about, right? Haha
The parades at the parties are definitely worth your time as are the special character meets that you can’t have otherwise.
