Halloween is a fan-favourite season at Disney World in Florida, and last year I discovered just why that is. The decorations and themeing are fun, but the real highlight is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, also known as MNSSHP. It’s an exclusive party where fewer people are allowed in Magic Kingdom and lots of special Halloween-themed events take place and rare characters pop up. All this good stuff does mean that there is quite a big admission fee, and it gets more expensive closer to Halloween. The events run from late August to very early November, so check ahead to find tickets if you’ll be in Florida around these times.
The party only lasts from 7pm to midnight, so there’s a lot to fit into a short amount of time. I’ve got together my top tips to help you make the most of your night at the Halloween party. I hope it helps!

I’ve never been one to pay more for extra events in Disney World, and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) has always been one of them. Isn’t Magic Kingdom great enough without having to pay another $100 to stay in for a few hours more?
This time, I have to hold my hands up and say that I was wrong. This evening was easily my favourite of the whole trip. Yes, it is a lot of money – around £75 with the poor exchange rate – but it might just have been worth it. This is why.
Saving money is tough for anyone, but it’s particularly challenging when you’re young. Add low wages to high rent, and factor in lots of tempting products and clothes, and money suddenly seems to be floating away down the drain. Most of my spare cash seems to go on burgers and theatre tickets. Rather than feeling guilty about that, I make sure I allow myself treats while still putting away every pound that I can.
It’s all for a reason. As you may know (I’ve mentioned it enough times), I’m off to Disney World in October and it has taken serious saving to be able to afford two weeks across the Atlantic with park tickets and great hotels. When I step onto that plane I know that every time I’ve sacrificed little things will definitely pay off.
