Disney always asks, “What will you celebrate?” but each year they throw in some celebrations of their own!
For guests traveling in October, November and December you can take part in Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Tickets for both of these events are at an additional cost (advanced purchase price $60.66 for ages 10 and over and $55.33 ages 3-9).
Ticket’s for both parties go on sale May 1st, both parties are very popular and it’s recommended you secure your tickets as early as possible (not to mention you save about $7 per ticket by booking early!)
If you are an Annual Passholder or a Disney Vacation Club Member your discounted rate is $56.40 (ages 10 and over) and $51.07 (ages 3-9). Annual Passholders can purchase up to 4 tickets at this rate, and Disney Vacation Club Members can purchase up to 6.
The parties run from 7pm (you can usually get in earlier!) until midnight and are only for guests with the special event ticket. During Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party you will be given Trick-or-Treat bags and a map to use throughout the Magic Kingdom, each station has different treats! The Halloween parade has a spooky start (listen for the galloping hooves and look for the headless horseman!) The parade also features all your favorite characters in their halloween costumes and a special fireworks show that is NOT to be missed! The Halloween party is also known for unique character meet n’ greets, dance parties with the characters and plenty of costumed guests to admire. Guests are encouraged to dress in costume, but Disney asks nothing that could be offensive to other guests. Rides, attractions and certain dining experiences are also available and are subject to change.
If you prefer something a bit more “jolly” Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is for you! You won’t find a more magical Christmas celebration than the one Mickey hosts. Cinderella’s Castle is enchanted with glowing icicles draped on every peak, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade features all the characters in their holiday gear and a special appearance by Santa Claus himself. Do NOT miss the Christmas fireworks: Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season. Be entertained by Disney characters, shake it with them at the dance parties and enjoy complimentary cookies and hot cocoa at stations all over the park. The cookies and cocoa are abundant and limitless…wear your stretchy pants! If you love Christmas you won’t want to miss this party and watch Disney magic in action as it snows on Mainstreet USA! Rides, attractions and certain dining experiences are also available and are subject to change.
If you are interested in these parties or would like more information call Disney at 407-W-Disney or contact your Disney travel professional. If you haven’t booked your holiday vacation yet, contact Pixie Vacations where the quotes are always free and the service is as magical as the trip you’re about to take!

Happily Ever After. Every Disney movie seems to end that way, but especially if it’s a Princess movie! Of course, we don’t live in that kind of a world, do we?
Celebrities are constantly being maligned. Their lives are reported on and distorted beyond recognition. Sometimes it’s unbelievable the headlines we see!
So I wondered:
What kind of headlines would the Disney Princesses make in today’s tabloids?
Well, let’s have a look…
Teenage Girl Arrested for Polygamy With Seven Men
Parents of Comatose Girl Decide to Remove Life Support
Lonely Woman’s Strange Hobby: Sewing Clothes for Mice
Girl Found on Beach Half-naked, Fined, Defendant Speechless
Royalty Involved in Peasant Scandal, Loses Crown
Woman Turns Down He-man, Marries Man-Beast
Young Lady Committed, Claims Tree is Grandmother, Talks to Raccoon
Girl Charged With Tom-Peepery, Found in Men’s Bathing Pool
Family Disowns Daughter for Alternative Lifestyle After Kissing Frog
Girl Arrested After Striking Man With Frying Pan, Claims Self-Defense
So I guess it’s for the best that these stories take place far, far away in a time long, long ago, and not in our modern world!
Kerry, one of our readers wrote in with the following question about Akershus, and the Princess Storybook Dining character dining: “One of my girls wants to go to Akerhause and eat this year. I have heard a lot of negative about the food. Was wondering if Breakfast or Dinner would be our best bet. Didn’t know what you or any of the readers thought.”
Thanks for that question! Let me tell you, the opinions range all over the spectrum about dining at Akershus. My family has been to Akershus twice for dinner, with a third time coming up this June, and let me tell you, we love it! In addition, my wife and daughter have eaten there once for breakfast, and they enjoyed it then as well. For breakfast, you are eating family style selections of eggs, sausage, and other standard breakfast dishes. For dinner, though, you will start off with a cold buffet of deli meats, seafood, salads, cheeses, and bread, and then follow that up with one of the entrees that you have available to you. If you are interested, here is the Akershus Dinner Menu. To my family, though, what separates Akershus from the rest of the Walt Disney World restaurants is the character interaction with the princesses. Where else can you go, have breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and get pictures and autographs with Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Princess Aurora, Jasmine, and Ariel? We have seen all of these wonderful princesses in the times that we have eaten at Akershus, and we look forward to seeing them again. For me, I like having dinner at Akershus — but I would imagine that you would like it either way. My favorite dish on the menu is the Traditional Kjottkake, which to me tastes similar to shepherd’s pie, but they also have some other really good entrees. The last thing I’ll add is that in addition to the food and princess interactions, you will also get a photo package as part of your dinner price, so enjoy that!
Thank you for your question, Kerry! I’ll close by posting one of my favorite pictures from our last trip — my niece, daughter, and Cinderella! Regardless of your choice, I hope you have a great trip on your next Disney World vacation!
