    Yay! Can't wait for this :-) Do they actually announce pricing ahead of time, or does it just appear when the tickets go on sale? I can't remember from last year...

    To compare prices to 2012:

    2012 2013
    Advanced Purchase - AP $46 $51
    Advanced Purchase - Public $54 $59
    Day Of $64 $67
    October 30/31 $69 $74
    So there's a $3-5 jump per ticket, and the possible elimination of the AP advanced purchase discount. I've asked Disney for clarification, and as always I'll update as soon as I hear from them. [Update: AP advanced purchase will be offered - see chart in the first post]

    Bummer. I knew it was a stretch, but I made a DVC ressie at VGC for 9/21 months ago in hope that we *might* get lucky and have this be a party night. Oh well. I guess DH and I will have to put the kids in the kids club and have a date night instead. Darn.

    It seems really odd that discounts are offered on Friday the 25th, but not on Wednesday the 23rd.

    How about Disney Visa card holders, DVC members .. any discounts?

    Sorry, typo. Fixed.

    None that have been told to me, but I'm still working on it.

    Boooo for not discounting most Fridays. I know, I know -- there's no business reason for them to discount Fridays if they can sell them out at full price (that whole "charge whatever the market will bear" thing), but ouch.

    What are the start times? Have they been posted yet?

    I'm looking at the prices and wondering if it's still worth it. Going in costume is a blast, but it's getting awfully pricy for dealing with the crowds and the limited time you are there. I may pass this year and use the monies saved to spend an extra day at the parks at another time.

    We're aiming for the party on Tuesday 10/15. It'll be our first time, although we've been to the Halloween Party at WDW many times.

    2013 Mickey's Halloween Party dates

    Carolinakid, I've heard that the 'parade' at the DL party is NOTHING like the Boo To You Parade, so don't set your expectations too high for that!

    Thanks, Cathy for the "warning". But on the bright side I guess I won't have that damn song in my head for the next 3 days! Happy Halloween, Boo To You!

    The Costume Cavalcade parade at DL is small, but cute. The big attraction is the fireworks (a, some would say the, highlight of the party), so the parade doesn't even try to compete with that.

    From what we've read and heard, the best way to enjoy the DL party is to go in without any expectations from WDW. Same holiday, different park, different party. You'll be at DL celebrating at a party! What's not to like?

    And this is a good point (and one I've personally made many times!) --- DL and WDW are different!!!

    I went to this party last year. It was a bit of controlled chaos, especially trying to find out how the lines snaked around to get to the candy stations. The parade was great! And you are right.... the fireworks was the star of the show.... After the fireworks, the rides were pretty much empty, so that was a good thing...

    Where is the link to purchase tickets? I see they go on sale tomorrow for passholders but I can't find where to purchase them from.

    the link won't appear until tomorrow, you have to go to the AP site, be signed in on your account, follow the links from the 'events' to the halloween part then there will be a link there to a shopping page.

    Ok. Thank you!

    Does anyone know the dates of any big events that would coincide with party dates? For example, Gay Days starts on Friday, 10/04 -- so I imagine that party will sell out. UEA is 10/17-18, so the party on the 18th may well be sold out. Any other dates?

    I received an email today from Visa. Disney card members will receive the $51 price on the select nights.
