Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Returns!

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

The most enjoyable spooky time of the year has come around again at Disney World resorts! If you are travelling to Disney World this September or in October, then make sure you do not miss the famous Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! Unlike it’s counterpart in Universal Studio, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is meant to enchant rather than spook and is a real treat for the whole family.

This year, Disney has increased the number of nights where you can attend the magical party to 32 nights instead of 29 last year! You will be able to enjoy the park to yourself (with other ticket holders) from 7pm and enjoy the Disney Halloween magic.
Meet and greet special Disney characters, go trick or treat with your favorite Disney heroes, and put on your favorite costume to join in with the Halloween fun (be sure to review Disney’s guidelines for accepted costumes first)! This year’s “Boo to You” Parade will make you skin tingle and your heart warm as the family of the Haunted Mansion parades through Magic Kingdom!

Tickets are already on sale and we recommend you book them as early as possible as those run out quite fast! If you want to avoid crowds of Halloween day and spend $100 on a ticket, plan to join the Halloween party before Halloween as September is quieter and cheaper!

A whole day and evening in the park can be tiring for the little ones, so make sure you hire a stroller from Magical Stroller Rentals to maximize your time and enjoyment in the park!!

A few words on costumes

When it comes to costumes, as of 2016, there are new rules and the costume policy has changed. In a nutshell, your costume should be family-friendly and appropriate for the occasion. You can dress as your favorite Disney character but you won’t be allowed to pose for pictures or sign autographs for other party guests. Weapons (or objects resembling weapons) as well as sharp or pointed objects, are prohibited.
