Disney has announced their dates for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which take place on select nights from August 25th through November 1st and November 9th through December 22nd, respectively at Magic Kingdom.
These hard-ticket events are always popular affairs, and they each have their own special dessert parties. Each party takes place at Tomorrowland Terrace at the entrance of Tomorrowland, and they provide excellent viewing for the fireworks since the restaurant seating is mostly outdoors.
The menus are pretty standard fare every year and include sparkling cider, chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate mousse, cupcakes, ice cream, fresh fruit, cheeses, etc. all on a bountiful buffet plus specialty drinks, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate.
As always, you can’t use Disney Dining Plan credits for this event, but new this year is that there’s no preferred seating for the parade. You’ll still be paying $79 for adults and $47 for kids aged 3 to 9 years, plus your ticket for the event itself, which is in addition to park admission.
It’s unclear why Disney removed the parade viewing from the dessert party lineup, but I can note that they’ve added a dining package that includes preferred seating for the Festival of Fantasy Parade and dining at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant.
Dessert event add-on to Christmas and Halloween Parties: Good idea?
