Louisa - I just looked at the policy for MNSSHP and you will be given entrance to the park after 4pm for the event. You do not need a ticket for park entrance that day for the MK unless you are planning on being at the park earlier than 4pm. I hope that helps to clear things up for you.

Thanks for pointing that out.
I'm sorry to have mislead you, Louisa.
So - 5 tickets it is!

Hi again Louisa,

As others have explained a CRT reservation does not include park admission while a MNSSHP ticket does.

Also as mentioned, the issue you are going to face is organising your timetable so your park tickets don't end up costing you the earth. Adding the non-expiry mentioned will add almost $200 to each person's ticket, which IMO, is quite a bit of money.
Here in Aus and NZ the tickets we buy are the same as the US ones and they expire after 14 days. If I was you, I would spend my first 3 days doing things that didn't involve park admission. Perhaps go to Downtown Disney, MNSSHP (it looks like there might be one on the 17th) or perhaps Universal or Seaworld. If you start using your Park tickets on about the 18th, this should get you through to the end of your stay.
My first suggestion would be to see if you can move your CRT reservation to a day closer to your cruise so it fits within your ticket days. A strong rumor was announced today that free-dining is going to be offered during your pre-cruise dates. This means that restaurant reservations are going to become very hard to get. The sooner you can lock in your reservations the better.

You got most of your answers, I just wanted you to be aware that you can have the desert party during the MNSSHP, that would eliminate doing it on a night you do not have a ticket for, also you stated you might do it twice so the first time you could not do the fireworks and spend more time at the rides, the second time you can do the desert party, they do offer it during MNSSHP.

For MNSSHP if you want to enter the park before 4 PM, you need some form of valid park admission.

In general they will allow you in after 4 PM on just a party ticket.

The Tomorrowland Terrace dessert party is not held during the MK Halloween party. Only during the Christmas party.

I just wanted to add that there are some other fun things you can do without the park admission.

There is a Pirates and Pals fireworks voyage that leaves from the CR. You meet at the CR, get some snacks and some photo ops and then you board a boat to view the electrical water pageant and the MK fireworks.

At FW, there are haunted carriage rides (in Oct), Hoop Dee Doo Review, and Mickey's Backyard BBQ.

No park tickets required.
