Dates Announced for the 2017 Halloween and Christmas Parties!  
by: guide4wdw - Collin

Just this morning, Disney has announced the entire lineup of dates for this years Not-So-Scarry Halloween Parties and Very Merry Christmas Parties. While this release seems earlier than usual, that could be due to the fact that the halloween party will begin in August!

The party has always been a huge guest favorite so this year it will occur on 32 different dates across August, September, October, and November.
  • August 25th and 29th 
  • September 1, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 24, 26, 29
  • October 1, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 27, 29, 31
  • November 1st
For many guests, this is the highlight of the fall season, so if you are in the area during any of these dates I highly recommend the event. It's great for guests of all ages and truly is a one of a kind experience complete with the Boo-to-You Parade and many other outstanding events created just for the halloween parties. Tickets for these dates will go quickly so if you're interested in any particular dates (especially the early dates or dates near the Halloween holiday) be sure to book as far in advance as possible. Tickets are limited, and in more recent years speculation has risen that the limit is slowly shrinking to create a better guest experience. 

As for the Christmas parties, this years dates will begin in early November just a few short days after the Halloween party concludes. Personally, this is my favorite special event of the year. The decorations are up in all their glory, the snacks included in the event are really enjoyable, and everyone is in the mood to have a great time. After attending last years event the week before Christmas, I have to honestly say I was much more impressed than in previous years. The increased character presence created a much more unique environment (including all Seven Dwarfs in one picture) and the wait times were outstanding. At night, during the week before Christmas, we were able to wait less than 20 minutes for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Now, that wasn't the case the entire night, but a majority of attractions kept a wait time of less than 30 minutes the majority of the night. There's just something about the event that makes you smile. The snow on Main Street is a truly memorable experience and the joy you get to experience all around you is hard to put into words.  

Here's this years dates: 
  • November 8, 9, 12, 14, 16, 17, 26, 28
  • December 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, 22   
On top of all the other wonderful elements of the parties, it appears as if both Hallo-Wishes and Holliday Wishes could be returning despite Wishes being replaced in the near future! 

Once again, if you want to go, get your tickets as soon as possible when they go on sale to guarantee the date you need/want!
