Not worth the money free hot chocolate and cookies and about 18 attractions open.
Went on a Tuesday night in early November supposed to be one of the less crowded nights.
The park was packed with hour waits on most rides not the premium experience I was expecting and paid almost 500 dollars for it,family of 2 Adults and 3 children not worth it.

It's not much of a secret anymore, but guests with MSSSHP tickets can enter the Magic Kingdom at 4 PM, before it closes to regular ticketed guests. If you stay until midnight, that's a 10-hour day for a pretty reasonable price. The parade and fireworks are usually worth the price of admission by themselves, and it's tough to pass up all the free candy.
May 10, 2017 at 7:31 AM · These holiday party events are making it hard to enjoy the Magic Kingdom for the full day for almost 4 months in a calendar year. Luckily, we will soon enjoy Animal Kingdom and DHS as full day parks so the sting won't be so bad. Disney will make money twice from the same guests. I also expect Disney to sell more park hopper passes for guests who want something to do at night and couldn't at the Magic Kingdom.
May 10, 2017 at 8:25 AM · The trick or treat trails help divert a lot of the Halloween party guests from the opened attractions, reducing wait time and making the Halloween party a better deal (to me) than the Christmas event, which feels a lot more crowded due to the lack of anything like the free candy. The cocoa and cookies are nice, but not the same.

In all seriousness, both parties are good fun and a 4 p.m. arrival time is a blessing in disguise for those of us that like to sleep in occasionally on their vacation or enjoy an early afternoon by the pool.

Of course, everyone has to make up their own mind on the cost.

May 11, 2017 at 11:11 AM · APs are not valid for the parties. Guests with party tickets can enter the Magic Kingdom starting at 4pm, without having to pay for a MK or WDW theme park ticket. APs will need to exit the park along with all other regular ticket holders when the party starts at 7.
