Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a very popular event that the Magic Kingdom has on select nights during the months of September and October. This party is after-hours and requires a separate ticket apart from a regular admission ticket to the Magic Kingdom. Your event ticket will get you admission to the Magic Kingdom on the day of that event as early as 4:00 pm when the even doesn’t start until 7:00 pm. Magic Kingdom Park will close to general admission guests who do not have a ticket to this event at 7:00 pm, but if you are attending this event you can stay in the park until 12:00 am!
Since Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party is a special ticketed event, only those with tickets will be in the park during the event hours. Also, some of the rides will still be open during this event and since there won’t be that much of a crowd the lines will be short! So pick up some candy and ride the rides with little to no weight!
So what makes Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party so unique? You will get to attend an all new villain stage show that takes place at Cinderella Castle, one of a kind character meets with rare characters and villains, attend two dance parties with characters, Boo-To-You Parade, Hallowishes Firework Spectacular and Trick-or-Treat stations at some of the rides throughout the park!
– Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular –
This show is back again this year! It is hosted by the three sisters from the Disney film, Hocus Pocus, and will be performed on Cinderella Castle’s Stage. The show will feature Dr. Facilier (The Princess and the Frog), Ooogi Boogie (The Nightmare Before Christmas) and Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty). This show has become a fan favorite, make sure to check it out!
– Character Meets –
You can meet with the Seven Dwarfs, Jack Skellington & Sally, Captain Jack Sparrow, the Tremaines, Jafar and Gaston. These characters can tend to have a very long line, my advice would be to get in line early! Also, the princesses that meet in Fairytale Hall will have their Princes with them at their meets during this event. You can also meet Mickey, Donald, Winnie the Pooh and some of the usual characters in their Halloween costumes. There are plenty of characters to meet during this event, but because of the short time frame and long lines I would choose wisely who you would like to meet!
– Villains Mix & Mingle –
This is a short show that is repeated four times throughout the event. Join villains such as: Maleficent, Captain Hook, Cruella de Vil and Dr. Facilier as they put on a brief stage show and then make their way into the crowd to meet guests. Their lines can get pretty crowded at the beginning, try and wait until the end for a short line!
– Dance Parties –
You can dance with some of your favorite characters at two locations, Monstrous Scream-o-Ween Ball located at the Stage in Tomorrowland or Club Villain located at the Diamond Horeshoe in Frontierland.
– Boo-To-You Parade –
Certainly one of the parades that you should not miss or it should be on your Disney bucket list! The parade starts out with the Headless Horseman trotting down the parade route. Following him are the Halloween decorated floats and performers that feature many of your favorites dressed in their Halloween best as well as gravediggers and ghosts! This parade runs twice at each event and the second one is less popular than the first. Still, I would suggest getting a spot early! Scroll down below to see a short video of this parade!!
– Villains Sinister Soiree: A Wicked Takeover of Cinderella Castle –
This dessert dinner features Disney Villains inside what is normally Cinderella’s Royal Table. This dinner is a separate ticketed event aside from your event ticket to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Tickets cost $99 per person! Your ticket to this dinner also gets you preferred viewing spots for the 8:15 pm Boo-To-You Parade and Happy Hallowishes. You also get an autographed card and a souvenir Maleficent dragon cup.
– Happy Hallowishes –
This firework show is similar to the Celebrate the Magic Show as it features Disney’s Villains from their movies and songs as swell as the soundtrack to the Haunted Mansion ride. There is only one showing at around 9:15 pm after which most of the crowd leaves after the show. Which means for the last two hours of the event the crowd is even smaller inside the Magic Kingdom!
– Trick-or-Treat Stations –
What would be a Halloween Party without candy? There are usually nine or so Trick-or-Treat stations throughout the Magic Kingdom. The Trick-or-Treat Stations are located at the entrance to some of the rides. There are two paths that Disney had created for guests to be able to hit all of the stations the quickest way possible. One starts at Space Mountain and the other starts at Splash Mountain
Guests are allowed to wear their Halloween costumes to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, yes even the adults! This is the only time that adults are allowed to come into the park in full costume besides the usual Disney Bounding outfits. So come up with a fun group costume, a unique family costume, a couple or individual costume and have a blast with Mickey celebrating Halloween!
