When do party tickets sell out? (Halloween, Christmas)

When do party tickets sell out? (Halloween, Christmas)

As people debate attending the Halloween and Christmas parties (they’re not cheap, we get it!), they often wonder how much time they have to decide if they’ll attend.

The truth is that they usually do sell out, but most dates take a little while to get there.

Here’s what’s you can expect.

When will my party date sell out?

Obviously we don’t have a crystal ball to tell us for sure, but we do know historically what’s happened which should help.

Typically the first and/or second party and the parties closest to the holiday are the fastest to go, then the others sell out a little later.

When should you buy your tickets?

If you know you’re going to attend, buy your tickets as soon as possible. We’ve heard from so many people who decided to go, waited to get tickets, and were surprised they were gone.

Or they got tickets for themselves, and then the people they were traveling with hesitated and missed out.

Once the tickets are gone, they’re usually gone. A limited number may be available at Magic Kingdom guest services the day of the party. Though the tickets are officially non-refundable, Disney sometimes makes exceptions which can open up some spots.
