Haven't been to either event, but I like Christmas better than Halloween, so Christmas it is! Sorry, but I have to base my vote on something, else I won't be able to participate at all this year!!

Mickeys not so scary is better in my book for the following reason.
1. The Boo To You parade is one of my most favorite ever. (headless horseman)
2. You can dress up and you see real cool costumes.
3. You can take candy home with you and have for a month. also saves on trick or treaters.

I was really torn because I think that both are in my top ten.

I went with Christmas because its really well done.

The problem is that both events are basically the same: great decoratons, special shows, treats, and two of Disney's best Parades!

Haven't been to either, but I gave the nod to Halloween because Disney prematurely ends their Christmas celebration. I went on January 1st and the decorations were all down with the exception of the Osborne lights at DHS. Meanwhile, Universal had their decorations up until Little Christmas (January 6th), so we were able to enjoy the atmosphere without the crowds.
