2011 Theme Park Insider Tournament preview: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party vs. Very Merry Christmas Party
Our next match-up in the 2011 Theme Park Insider Tournament: America's Best Theme Park Event
featured two of the top after-hours parties at the world's most popular theme park, Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Starting tomorrow morning, you'll get your chance to vote for either Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Both of these family-friendly events parades, fireworks and character greetings, in addition to the chance to ride some of the Magic Kingdom's most popular attractions. But which is your favorite?
Would you rather the free hot chocolate and cookies at the Christmas party or the trick-or-treating at the Halloween event? Both have become holiday traditions for many Disney fans in Central Florida, but we'll have to pick one tomorrow, so start your campaigning in the comments.
Update: The vote is now open.
Its a tough call since these are two great Magic Kingdom Events.
Mickeys not so scary is better in my book for the following reason.
Christmas because the shows are great , falling snow, the best fireworks display , the Xmas Parade ( even with the reindeers without tongues ! ) and,as Anthony reminded us, the hot chocolate and cookie stations.
I've been to both of these events in the last 4 years. I have two young boys and we feel that the Halloween party was much better than the Christmas party. Why? There was a trick-or-treat at the Halloween party, as well as the fact that everyone was able to dress up in costume. Other than the Osbourne lights there was not really any significant benefit to the Christmas party. I am from Pennsylvania and the fake snow was really cheesy, as was the watered down hot chocolate. One thing that many people forget is that you can still ride while the parades are happening. We stayed on Splash Mountain for 4 rides in a row because there was no one in line during the parade at MNSSHP.
