I thought I would also point out that the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is coming up and this one DOES sell out! The dates this year are November 8th – December 22nd. I budget for these all year long – a couple dollars a month is all you need! This a party that they have in the Magic Kingdom – you DO have to buy an additional ticket for it, but you are able to go into the park at 4:00 pm and it closes to everyone else starting at 7:00 pm! So for 5 HOURS the only people in the park is you and the other party-goers. We are able to ride more rides in those hours than we would ever be able to on a regular day. The tickets to the party are about $99/each. You get you free snacks and drinks while you are there too! In the past years it has been apples, cookies, apple juice, water, and hot cocoa.
