Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party got a few new things this year and we couldn’t wait to see it all so we could tell you all about it! The new fireworks show, Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular Fireworks replaced Hallowishes this year and if you’re planning to see this show, we have a few tips for you to make the most of it! But remember, this fireworks show is only available at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. So, if you want to see it in Magic Kingdom, make sure to buy a Party ticket. Here are 5 tips for viewing Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular!
UPDATE: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party for 2021 has been Canceled. Read more about the event that is replacing it for 2021; Disney’s After Hours Boo Bash will be offered select nights from August through October 2021.
The new fireworks show takes place at 10:15 pm so it’s basically sandwiched in between the first and second Boo To You Parade. If you’re hoping to get a great spot, we recommend finding your place 15-30 minutes before the show starts depending on the crowd levels at your party.
Don’t Stand Too Close
Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular not only features fireworks but also projections on the castle and the spires on the side. If you’re too close, not only will you miss the projections, but you won’t be able to see the full effect of the projections on Cinderella’s Castle.
Don’t Stand Too Far Away
In addition to fireworks and projections, Disney’s Not So Spectacular also features Jack Skellington himself! He tells a Halloween story right from Cinderella Castle and if you’re too far away, you won’t be able to see him. The best spot in our opinion is slightly in front of the Partners Statue. You’ll be able to see most of the projections and fireworks and won’t miss seeing The Pumpkin King in all his glory.
Have Your Camera Ready
One of our favorite things about this show is how easy it is to get pictures of it! Even if your camera is just your phone, many of the projections are bright enough that you should have no problem capturing a few amazing shots. Don’t stay on your phone or camera too long though, or you’re sure to miss something! Be sure to check out all our Disney Photography Tips to get inspired.
Speaking of missing something leads us to our last tip. Be sure to look up! Look up from your phone, up from your camera, up to the sky, look all around! At 12 minutes in length, this is a pretty quick-moving show. The scenes can sometimes change very fast, and there’s a lot going on in this show. And while it’s extremely likely you’re not going to see everything, you’ll get the most of the fireworks show by keeping your eyes to the sky.
