    Well, first off let me say I don't go to Disney World to save money but, you can go and enjoy the Magic Kingdom for eight hours and do everything (all rides & shows) several times for about half the price of a single day ticket.

    I have been to the Pirate and Princess Party three times now and absolutely love it!! I went as recently as two weeks ago (March 1, 2008) and while they no longer give free chocolate it's still a great time.

    No lines...No waits

    Magic Music and Mayhem!!!

    Ya I have the chance to go to one of these when I go in May and have decided not to. While I want to see the fireworks show that is the only thing I'd be paying to go see and it's not worth the money. I think the parade bites :P And as my signature may suggest I think the concept of these things is quite funny :P

    If you don't have a day ticket and only the hard ticket for the night's events, you can enter the park as early as 4 pm. Just remember to get a wristband from the CMs hanging around the entrance gates. The CMs check for wristbands during the first hour or so of the event. Also, if you enter early, you can do some of the rides that are not open during the event, like the Jungle Cruise.

    ORDDU: A witch certainly HOPES so, WDW1974, duckling. Having all these excuses to charge two different groups of guests for a one day visit to the parks is not only greedy, it's INSANE!!!

    ORGOCH: Yeah, well, look who's runnin' the place!! That no-good Phil Holmes, fer one! Sounds like Prissy Pirates thing's already backfirein' on 'em, though.

    ORWEN: We were complaining against it, ourselves, at City Hall a few weeks ago. It's getting harder and harder for guests to plan a vacation at the Magic Kingdom when they want to see the fireworks and Spectro Magic!!

    I would say no, unless you or your children want to be princesses or gay pirates ... not that there's anything wrong with that.

    I am strongly against any hard-ticket event at WDW with the exception of the Halloween Parties, and even they are getting ridicuous. This year, they're starting them when it's still summer (9/5).

    If Phil Holmes and Erin Wallace could have these 365 days a year, they would.

    The good thing is the PP Parties (no, not that kind so put your swimwear away) are not attracting the crowds Disney needs to keep them going. So, soon, if people keep staying away, they may go away themselves.

    they dont even give away chocolate anymore!! now its just crappy recycled beads and stuff.

    i agree with this description of PPP.....the fireworks are great and the parade is cool. If you have smaller children, they will love it...adults w/o kids would enjoy it, but not nearly as much. I only go due to heavily discounted cast tickets.

    Yeah, I ahve a 4 and 2 year old that love dressing up, and the wife loves fireworks (I don't know why they make her cry, though...ok, Wishes choked me up the first time I saw it!).

    I think we'll actually go ahead and do it for the heck of it and see what happens.

    If we're in the park earlier in the day, will they like give us a wrist band or something to stay in the park, or do we have to exit and re-enter?

    NO. The P&P parties are not worth the money... unless... you have kids that would enjoy dressing up as Princesses or pirates, or you absolutely love fireworks shows. This party does feature the best "special event" fireworks show at the Mk, and the parade is Ok... but other than that, NO, it's not worth the money IMHO.

    We went when they first offered it and had a great time. Noone seems to be going to this event so you will have the park to yourselves. You can actually get there at 4pm and they will let you in, so if you stay till midnight, it's like getting a whole day. Make sure you see the parade and the fireworks. And if he is around, try to see Jack Sparrow. The guy we saw was incredible! Worth the 20 minutes we had to wait in line.

    If you decide to go, let us know how it went.
