Another question, is the halloween party at disneyworld too much for a 3yr old would you say? Is it really meant for older children and adults? How about the universal one?
Oh my gosh, stay away from the Universal one with children! It's very adult, can be quite gory and usually pretty intense on the horror side.
Disney is great fun. We've only attended once as guests of very dear friends, but we had a wonderful time. Our little guy was six at the time, and enjoyed every minute. The parade is one of the best Disney puts on!
There really isn't anything at all too scary, hence the name, "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party."
