2017 Disney Holiday Party Dates have been released! This week Disney released the dates for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP.)
While we know the dates for the parties we do not know all the details yet. One important detail that is missing is price!
2017 Disney Holiday Party Dates
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP for short) will be held on select dates in August, September, October and one night in November. The party normally starts at seven but guests normally have been allowed to enter at four.
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP for short) will be held select nights in November and December. The party normally starts at seven but guests may be allowed to enter as early as four.
The Magic Kingdom plays host to both parties. That means if you do not buy a special ticket for the party you must leave at seven.
What is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
The very first Halloween party at the Magic Kingdom was in October of 1995. Now it stretches from August to November.
MNSSHP is a special event. That means it is not included in regular park admission. The party starts at seven and if you do not have the special ticket you will be asked (politely) to leave. The party is the one time during the year that adults can wear costumes in a Disney theme park.
The most popular attractions will be open and will probably have shorter lines than during normal hours. There are, however, some special things to do that are only available during the party. Those include a special Halloween fireworks show (Hallowishes in the past), the Boo-To-You Halloween Parade, special event only character meet-and-greet opportunities, trick-or-treating and more!

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
This is also a special ticket event. If you do not have one you will be asked to leave.
The party normally starts at seven but guests may be allowed to enter as early as four.
The entire park will be in Christmas mode. Most of the best attractions will be open! Guests normally are treated to hot chocolate and cookies. There will be special fireworks (probably centered around the movie Frozen.) There will also be special parades featuring Santa Claus and special opportunities to meet characters. It may even snow on Mainstreet USA!
