So this is the first year we have to pay for a ticket to Mickey's Christmas party in order to see the snow, fireworks and parade(s) . I see that it looks like there are a few new parades added, a glow with the show and free hot chocolate and cookie and a souvenir card also, but what gets me is the Holiday Tour also shared in some of these events. The ticket to the Mickey Party with tax is ~$66 and the ticket to the tour is $75 (can't remember if there was tax also charged)
With a difference of say ~$13 the tour would also give you a front seat to the parade, walk on to the HM and ITSM ride, souvenir pin instead of a card, a little treat at one of the bakeries, and of course inside knowledge to Disney's Christmas history but I don't know whether you would miss any of the other events since the tour usually starts around 4pmish and finishes at the parade.
Since the party starts at 7pm would the tour end after the parade and they would escort you out of the park? or would you need to buy both tickets and if that was the case then certainly the value of buying both where they obviously overlap would not be much of a value.
Guess just wondering what your thoughts are on the Party vs the Tour or on anything of these two subjects.
