Sept_2017_HalloweenBag
I know seems early, but the Halloween festivities have begun in the Magic Kingdom. My family will be attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this Friday 9/1, and my kids’ goal is to collect candy at the Trick-Or-Treat stations. Guess how many pounds of candy our family will collect & post your guess in the comments on my Facebook page.

The person with the closest guess, without going over, will win this 2017 limited edition, Walt Disney World Halloween bag. Perfect for your own trick-or-treating this year.

To avoid a tie, you cannot guess the same number as someone else that has already posted; be sure & get your guess in early. You can change your guess as long as another person has not already guessed that number.

HINT: Watch on Friday night for my Facebook live post at the party, & we will hold up our bags of candy for you to see. ūüėČ

WINNER: The winner will be announced on Tuesday evening at 5:00pm during my Facebook live post. Good luck everyone and have fun playing!

Disney’s Photopass Offers Special Shots for the Halloween Parties

Halloween is possibly my favorite time of year to visit Disney World and Disneyland. ¬†It offers such bright, fall decor, perfect temperatures, low crowds and great prices. ¬†The Halloween parties are special ticketed event that take place in the Magic Kingdom as well as Disneyland Park and also require an extra ticket. ¬†In my opinion they are worth the cost to me since the Halloween parties are my favorite event to attend. ¬†Who can resist the special characters, parades, shows and of course the candy, candy, candy….

MNSSHP_2014_Candy
Look at all of the amazing candy from the 2014 MNSSHP. We have to bring a separate bag to get it all home. Our record for candy was in Disneyland and we collected 19 pounds of Halloween candy!

Although Disney World lays claim to most of the special shots offered by Photopass at the Halloween parties this year.  Both Disney World and Disneyland have Photopass opportunities available that are unique only to the Halloween parties.

Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World offers the, ever popular, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party that begins in September and ends on¬†November 1st this year. ¬†Ticket prices start at $68 per ticket for this Halloween celebration.

During this fall celebration you will be able to get special photos with Disney characters decked out in their Halloween best. ¬†You also will have access to select Magic Shots and even Animated Magic Shots. ¬†Don’t forget that you will need to purchase a Memory Maker entitlement to get all of your Photopass photos from your stay.

Disneyland¬†offers a similar Halloween party by a different name, Mickey’s Halloween¬†Party that begins in September and ends on Halloween¬†this year. ¬†Ticket prices start at $69 per ticket for Disneyland’s¬†Halloween celebration.
