Does anyone know when the last party dates sold out last year and how many of the last parties sold out? I am looking at going Dec 16 and 18 but curious on if there is any way I can wait until Dec 3rd to purchase tickets as that is when my credit card rolls over so I wouldn't have to pay the bill until the end of January. I know its a risk but just curious what previous history of sell outs were to determine if I want to take the risk or not. Thanks

Have the last few parties sold out? Since the first 4 or so did, just wondering what we are in for in 2 weeks.

Actually there have only been 4 parties so far. They are not held during Thanksgiving week. Because of the crowds they don't want to close the park early. No word on tonight's party.

We went to the Friday 11/16 party and I don't think it sold out. They were selling tix when we arrived at 4:45pm. Thursday 11/15 was sold out--read that on this thread.

This was our first party so other than what I read on here, I didn't know what to expect. Crowds were very manageable. Below us an aproximate of what we accomplished.

The Plaza for dinner (5:05 Ressie, seated at 5:20). Kids ran out to see castle lighting.
6:30 Lined up for Santa (third family)
6:30 Ds and Dh rode A few rides
7:15pm family Santa pic
7:30 Mickey and Minnie family pic
7:50pm Enchanted Tales with Belle
8:20pm New Ariel Ride
8:45pm shopped during group bathroom break
9:00pm Dance party in TL--loved this!
9:10pm Tea Cups, Barnstormer (can't remember new name)
Totally forgot about fireworks!!!
9:30 waited for parade while group rode HM, Pirates, BTMR
10pm parade
10:30pm Princess M & G. Aurora/Philip, Rupunzel/Flynn, Snow/Charming
During this time DH and DS rode more rides
11pm shopped
11:40 left park no lines for buses.

Overall a great night. It Helped slow our MK day down since we could skip rides we already did. Wish I hadn't forgot about fireworks! Would do it again for short lines, ambiance and great parade!

My timeline above is flawed somewhere--we watched the second parade. Would that be 10 or 11?

Attending MVMCP with my BFF, our 2nd annual Moms Only trip. For fun we are planning to wear new Disney Christmas fleece pajamas. Anybody else ever done this? We were freezing last year, so we also figure these will help us stay warm, with layers of course!

We went on Sunday night (11/25) and thought it was OK - not terrible but probably won't bother to do it again. They said on the parking lot bus that the party was sold out so there were no tickets for sale at the gate. It was very VERY busy along Main street and around the castle but there was no wait on any ride. The most we waited was for Space Mountain at 9pm and that was a 10 minute wait. All the other rides we were able to go right on again - the kids rode Thunder Mountain tons. We got hot (warm) chocolate a couple of times during the night. It is sickly sweet (still drank it!) and the cookies are pretty blah. In Liberty Sq. they had chocolate chip and snickerdoodles. We went into both dance parties and though they were both really lame.

We enjoyed being able to see Belle and my son got picked to play beast so that amused us (and horrified him when she kissed him). There isn't much to this new Belle show though...not what I expected. New to us also was the Mermaid ride which seemed dated even though it's brand new. Seeing the new snow white ride progressing was very exciting.

We saw the start of the fireworks from Tomorrowland and the bulk nearish the castle. I thought they were fantastic as was the light show on the castle. We got trapped, very TRAPPED in the after fireworks crowd trying to get over to Frontierland. It was horrible. We had to line up (in Frontierland) at 10pm to get a front row spot for the second parade...we just got there in time from the fireworks. We were pretty under-whelmed with the parade. It just didn't wow me at all. After the fireworks we went back to space mountain (no wait this time) and on buzz lightyear.

Loved the snow on main street which we only really saw on our way out. We stayed in the park till midnight and then hit a wall of people trying to leave. The line to get on the monorail was 10s of people deep at the bottom of the stairs. The ferry line was no better.

So we had fun but I think it was more the thrill of being in the park at dark - something we hadn't done yet. I don't think the parade, snow or hot chocolate made it worth the $$ but I'm still glad we got to experience it once.

Fwiw I think the party is a good deal considering you can be in the park almost as long as a regular park day, minimal wait times for rides, ambiance, different parade/fireworks and if you like character meet and great there are great combos you don't see on a regular day. I can see how this is a big draw for locals. The day ticket price is closing in on $100.

Yes, I can see how it would be a decent deal for locals, or anyone on their way to a cruise wanting to pop in for a short viist. But for folks on a multi-day ticket, where additional days are just $10, it's not nearly as great a deal. Especially as they eliminate more and more of the party specific things and replace them with things you can do already during the day.

I know for us (we're going to the party on 12/6) that we chose the party tickets in lieu of getting an extra day's park tickets. It was more cost effective and we'd never done the party before. Last visit we had 5 day military park hoppers and this year we only have 4 day PHs so we opted to try this out. I'm a little nervous about a late night with our 2 year old, but since we won't be at the parks that day we will be resting/napping at the hotel before going to the party hopefully!

A question for those who have gone to the party. Has the little mermaid
ride been open to guests of the party?

Thanks!
