Tell me why MNNSHP is worth the price - PLEASE!!!

So we fly out in 8 days and DH is still giving me a very hard time over my wanting to get tickets to MNNSHP. He keeps saying 'I was there - it isn't that great". I keep pointing out he was there IN HIS TWENTIES (he's now 48) and I nor have our 7 or 9 year old children EVER been there and we should be allowed to experience it at least once. Just because HE doesn't think it's worth it doesn't mean we wont. But I do agree with him that it IS a LOT of money.
We do get a discounted rate for being DVC members but ONLY if I preorder the tickets for pick up - and I have to do that SOON! There is only 1 night of our trip that we can actually go so I don't want to miss the boat.
All of you believers that MNNSHP is worth the $50-60 price per person admission fee PLEASE TELL ME WHY so I can help him make an educated and appropriate decision!!!! I've never been - all I hear is "it's wonderful" but that doesn't give me any real info other than someone else's opinion on their own experience!!!!

The short lines to get on rides is the main reason I go. The rest is just gravy. It's a good replacement for E-Ride nights which i miss terribly.

My DH felt the same way before we went last week. But after we went, he definitely agreed it was worth the money. He's not really into parades, but he LOVED the MNSSHP parade. And the fireworks show is amazing! IMO, it's the best one and worth the ticket price in itself. Being able to walk onto rides helped too It was raining most of that night and we still had a blast.

Amazing parade

Fantastic Fireworks

Non-existent ride lines

Rare characters available for meet and greets

Headless Horseman

Tons of candy

Dance parties

Ability to enter MK at 4pm with just your MNSSHP ticket (which allows you to go to a different park in the morning with your regular ticket)


Leave him at the hotel and take the kids yourself. There...I just saved you $50. Your DH should be happy.

Just go to YouTube and pull up some recent videos of the parade and fireworks. For me, I love the parade and that is what sells me. Now some folks mentioned the short lines. When we've been there the crowds were huge and the lines were worse than during regular hours. But I love it anyway for the atmosphere.

The candy is not exactly free, you pay $60 to get in, but it is a nice perk.

Sometimes the lines for candy are longer then the lines for rides..LOL

Fireworks are great and if you can stay for the second parade the crowds drop big time.

Only you can really decide, but I would say that like MVMCP, I think everyone should go ONCE to find out. Overall, my vote is "no" but I don't have kids,

I think the Halloween party is totally worth it, i'm 30 and don't have kids (except for my fiancee).

First of all the price of the ticket is less than a full day park pass and you get in way before the listed 7pm, I think around 3-4pm they will let you into the park. So, instead of spending $90 for a full day pass you can spend $60 and get 8+ hours of time at the park.

Second, we have experienced walk onto the ride wait times on just about every ride in the park during the party. This includes my favorites, Pirates, Haunted and Splash. Obviously, some rides aren't open during the party but those are mostly the same rides that aren't open at night in general.

Third, parade is pretty cool and I don't like parades.

Fourth, you get to dress up and you are surrounded by other people who are dressed up. You get to see cute kids in costume and you get to see creative/well executed adult costumes. It really does transport you back to your childhood in that regard.

Fifth, the attitude of the people at the party is generally very happy and friendly unlike a normal day in the park with grumpy kids and stressed parents.

Sixth, the special Halloween decorations are awesome.

Seventh, "free" candy and lots of it. You probably only have to go to 2-3 candy handouts to get enough candy for the week. (the candy actually wasn't the highest quality but from what I understand it does change from year to year)

Plus all the other stuff the above posters mentioned.
