How to Save Money at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Buy Discounted Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Tickets. Ticket prices are based on date popularity. The earlier in the season you go, the cheaper your tickets are. Be sure to take advantage of Annual Passholder and DVC discounts as well.

Do the party only. If you don’t have an annual/seasonal pass just go for the party. You can get into the park at 4:00 with your party ticket to enjoy a few rides before the fun begins. That will save you from having to buy an additional park ticket.

Want to have some fun before the party? Go resort hopping, enjoy the pool, visit Disney Springs or just relax so you can stay at the park until the party ends.

Eat a meal before you get to the party. The party seems to go by so quickly. Doing a character dining meal or even counter service meal will just take up too much time. Between all the free candy and the special treats offered you will get enough to eat. Maybe pack a sandwich or two if you want. I was too busy trying to catch all the fun to eat.

Set a budget. Set a budget for how much you want to spend on merchandise and specialty treats especially if you are not on the dining plan. Maybe choose to have 1 or 2 specialty treats and 2 souvenirs.

DIY your costume. One year I went as pre-princess Cinderella. The costume cost about $5.00 to put together. For last year’s #DisneySide party, I did a DIY Darla costume that probably cost me around $5.00 to make as well. Search Pinterest for hundreds of creative out of the box Disney costumes. Check out my Disney Halloween Pinterest Board for some inspiration.

Have a plan. When I went my first time. I made the mistake of not having a plan and missed a couple of things I would have liked to do. In some ways, I feel like I did not get enough value out of my ticket and that bothers me. Make priorities and make a plan!

Skip the Extra Ticketed Events. If Disney offers special ticketed events, skip them. Disney has added an additional ticketed event to the party.  If it is your 1st, 2nd, or 3rd time to the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, I would just do the regular party things.

Since this is a ticketed event, the park is not overly crowded so seeing the fireworks is not a problem. Plus, refer back to tip #2. I personally think the additional ticketed event is kind of crazy, I mean spending almost $200 just on one evening?!?!

Get Your Free Collectors Card. Whether you play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom or not, go to the fire station and get your free card. They make a nice free souvenir.

So, what other ways do you save at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party?
