Mickey's Halloween Party Selling Out

Hey there!

It was announced on this website yesterday that more dates for Mickey's Halloween Party are now sold out (including the party we're going).

I was wondering how crowded it will feel to be at a sold out party.

Also, any know how many tickets are sold on a sold out night?

Thanks in advance!

From what I read on the opening day Halloween party, it was 35 K. I am expecting the same amount for our party.

We went to a party on a Tuesday last year that ended up being sold out. The time from 3-7 (overlap with day guests) was PACKED but more manageable after 7:00. It remained crowded throughout the evening with really long lines for meet and greets and trick or treating but the trick or treat lines moved pretty quickly. I don't think it ever felt like you we're there at a "limited engagement" crowd-wise (as I hoped for) but it wasn't too bad. Have fun!

I was there at the first party on the 28th and it was sold out. I didn't think it was that bad. It was crowded around the Hub and Main Street for the fire works and calvacade but other than that, i thought it was bearable. Don't be discouraged with the looks of the trick or treat trail lines. They all move very fast. We had a blast and are actually doing the party again on Oct. 26th. You'll have fun!

Thanks for the enabling. I just bought us tix for next Fri. I was going to skip it but eh, what's another $250? What else will we do in Anaheim on a Fri. night?

I was surprised it wasn't sold out yet. I wonder if they sell more for the Fri. parties?

We went to the sold out party this past Friday (the 5th). It seemed much more crowded than last year (also a sold out Friday). It didn't have that limited ticket feel like last year. However, the lines moved very fast. It was impossible to meet Mickey and Minnie or Jack and Sally, their lines were ridiculous. Almost all of the rides were walk on or less than a 10 minute wait. Haunted Mansion was about 30 minutes. We were able to do everything we wanted to do,but it felt a little more rushed compared to last year. We love the Halloween party and will tolerate the crowds for it, but next year we may pick a Tuesday night instead.

Thanks for asking! I was wondering the same since our party date (the 15th) was also announced as sold out.
For us character M&G's are a must do, we just want to see the fireworks, parade and ride some rides. Sounds like it'll be okay for that.

We were at the first party. I didn't think the lines for the meet and greets were bad. Mickey and Minnie looked long but were only about 10 minutes.

Wow! in years past the long lines meant that it was a hour or more of a wait to see of the characters.

We went on Tuesday 2nd Oct - it wasn't sold out prior to 6pm, there were signs up saying there were still tickets available and they were selling them in the park also. However it was very crowded, too crowded for me, especially around New Orleans Square. Meet and greet for Jack/Sally had a 1 hour plus line. Other character meets (except Mickey and Minnie) were less crowded but still had longish lines. We only went on a couple of rides but the waits weren't too bad (about 10 minutes each for Pirates/BTMRR).

M&M were located just outside the round up area. The line went towards BTMRR. When we got in line it was up to the bridge. The only really bad part was that we had to wait smelling cigarette smoke because the smoking section was next to the line.

That's no good. I have light asthma and I can't stand people that smoke. Do you know if the line for the Mickey pumpkin on Main Street is long?
