Can people over the age of 12 still get a makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique? (Character Couture Packages)

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is extremely popular and way back when you used to be allowed to go there as an adult. But not anymore.

In those cases, you won't be able to get an appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique but you will be able to get a makeover. Here's how...

How far in advance should I buy my Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets?

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) is a special ticketed event at the Magic Kingdom where people get dressed up in costume and attend special Halloween-themed activities that are only offered at the party. If you decide to attend a party during your visit, you will need to decide when to buy your tickets. But just how far in advance should you buy your tickets for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party?

Is the Dessert Party during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party worth it?

There are several special ticketed events offered at Walt Disney World throughout the year. One of these events is the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.

One of the special activities offered during the party is the Hallowishes Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace. This event costs extra to attend (on top of the cost of the Halloween party ticket). So, is it worth it to pay the extra to attend the Hallowishes Fireworks Dessert Party? Probably not.

What are “Magic Shots” at Disney World and how do I know which ones are available?

If you are new to Disney World or if you haven't ever paid much attention to Disney's PhotoPass service you may be thinking that a "Magic Shot" is when somebody at Epcot (over the age of 21, of course) consumes a bit of alcohol out of one of those containers they market as "toothpick holders". That my friends is just a plain ol' "shot". Yes, you may be drinking it at Disney World but it's still just called a "shot". OR - maybe you think it has something to do with a bunny rabbit and a person waving a wand over a top hat. But that is just "magic". A "Magic Shot" is something totally different. But just what are Magic Shots at Disney World and where can you find them?

What does it mean when the calendar lists a “special ticketed event” at Magic Kingdom?

When do Halloween and Christmas party tickets go on sale?

When do the dessert parties at Disney World open up for booking?

I wish I could tell you how many times a week we get asked this question. And that makes total sense because the process for booking dessert parties has gotten pretty confusing in recent years.   Disney publicizes that the dessert parties open up for booking at 180 days (like dining reservations) and while that may be true sometimes, it definitely isn't true ALL of the time.   In fact, more often than not you'll find that those pesky dessert parties don't open up at 180 days. Or even at 90 days. Sometimes they don't even open up at 60 days.   And, there really isn't any rhyme or reason to it. Well, at least not to "us" non-Disney employed folks there isn't.
