While the dates for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party were announced several weeks ago, tickets for these special events finally went on sale this morning. And while we’re sure more details about what to expect from this year’s event will probably be revealed in the coming months, those looking to purchase tickets early in an effort to secure their spot to at either Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party will unfortunately notice that some big price hikes have hit both of these events...
1. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party sees double digit ticket price increases and crosses the $100 mark on Halloween

As has been the case in the past, the park will offer special discounts to annual passholders as well as Disney Vacation Club Members on select dates, which you can check out here. Average savings is between $10-$20, depending on which night you are thinking about attending, so if you are a member of one of these groups, it is worth checking out. Though even the discounted prices are up from last year, at least annual passholders and Disney Vacation Club members can save a few bucks if they opt to go to this event on nights when guest turnout is expected to be lower.
