And The Survey Says... MVMCP

Low voter turn out - just like in a mid-term election year. Honestly, I was a bit discouraged by this to begin with, then I thought, perhaps some readers couldn't vote because they have not been to either Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. And that is fair, after all, these are hard ticketed events and do not always fit into what could be a very tight budget. So I prefer to think that the reason for only 8 votes is for this reason.

The verdict? With eight votes being cast, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party garnered 2 votes (25%) and the winner with 6 votes (75%) is Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.
I was somewhat conflicted about this vote. The image of the Headless Horseman riding down Main Street U.S.A., the thousands of people in costumes (some of which are exceptionally good), and the promise of pounds of candy makes the MNSSHP a real treat. But for me, the thought of walking down Main Street U.S.A., an already magical place for me, with snow falling - well, that is special. It is, to me, one of those experiences that help to sum up what Walt Disney World is to me. It is taking an already magical place, and turning the volume up!

Let's move on.

In 14 days I'll be driving to Walt Disney World for the "Papa/Granddaughter Week" in Walt Disney World. It will be an incredible time! Yes, the parks will be more than crowded, but I don't care. I'll be with someone who brightens my life with a simple look in my direction. But I take this trip to help frame the question for this week. We'll be in the parks on New Years Eve. So my question to you is this, "Which park would you prefer to spend New Years Eve in?" Forget the crowds, just think about where you want to be, then vote. Choose from the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios or Disney's Animal Kingdom. And if you'd like, feel free to share why in the comments.

I already know where I wish to spend the evening, but who knows, maybe my mind could be changed.

Note: I post about the upcoming trip in a few days - certainly before we leave.

Hi Greg,

I was one of those who sat on my hands during this survey since I haven't been to both events.

Under the category of "voting with my pocketbook" - the only hard-ticketed event I've been to is MNSSHP. I came within a mouse's whisker for voting for it in the survey anyway. For me the guest costumes are what separate this event.

Keep those poll questions coming!
