Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Tickets 2024

As this Disney Halloween Party is a special event, a Magic Kingdom Park Ticket does not get you access to the party.

Buy Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party Tickets. 

How Much Does the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Cost?

Ticket prices for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2024 range from $109 to $199, ($10 less for children ages 3-9). Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members on select nights, can receive $10 off the ticket price. With this being a hard ticket event, meaning that you have to purchase a separate Halloween ticket to get in, a lot of people tend to ask if it’s worth it. At between $109 and $199 dollars a person, this is a valid question. You will pay $100+ dollars per person to get into the party, and that is in addition to any other park tickets you may need to buy that day. Obviously, as we have been going for years, we do believe that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is very well worth it.

You’re in Magic Kingdom, surrounded by gorgeous fall decorations, and special character meets and greets you won’t find anywhere else.

How Do I Get My Mickey’s Not Scary Halloween Party Tickets?

Once purchased your Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Tickets will show up on your My Disney Experience App Account and can be accessed in the app. If you have a MagicBand, your Disney Halloween Party Tickets will automatically be linked, and you can simply scan in on party night. For guests not staying on the property if you’re visiting the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or don’t have a Magicband, then you can print your tickets after purchase. Once printed, or pulled up on your phone, bring them to the will-call window at the Magic Kingdom front gates to get your ticket there. If you’re visiting Magic Kingdom for the day, you’ll be able to just stay all day through to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. The cast members do a really good job of “sweeping” the park at 7 p.m. to make sure that only Halloween Party attendees are the only ones left at the park when the party officially begins.

There are wristband stations throughout the park where you can get your party wristband so be sure to have your ticket ready. If you’ve bought these tickets in your My Disney Experience app or Disney account, then it is automatically linked to the magic bands you have associated with the account. If you get in line to meet a character with a really long queue and forget to get your wristband beforehand, it’s possible that you may be booted from the line in order to get your wristband, so just be sure to do that before you commit to any of the party offerings!

Do you Need a Magic Kingdom Park Ticket for the Halloween Party?

No, you do not need a separate Magic Kingdom Park Ticket to get into the Halloween Party. You do need a Mickey’s Not  So Scary Halloween Party Ticket. Although not heavily advertised, the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) ticket will get you in as early as 4 p.m. Since you don’t need to get a park ticket to get into Magic Kingdom if you have the Halloween Party ticket, your party day is a good day to explore the resort or visit a water park. You can also save money on your Disney Vacation by just doing free things at Disney that day instead. Spend the morning at Disney Springs, resort hop, or (especially) if you have small children, just hang at your resort for the first half of the day. Especially, as this can end up being a pretty late night for party-goers.

Are Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Tickets Refundable or Transferable?

No. All special event tickets at Walt Disney World, including Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party are not refundable or transferable to another person, or date. However, from our experience, if there is an issue and you need to change dates, Disney will sometimes allow this on a case-by-case basis. It never hurts to ask!

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Planning

We find the character meet and greet part of the party more a prioritizing thing than a planning thing because it is hard to say how long each character line will take. If you’re bent on meeting someone, choose the most important characters and see them first! At the same time, you and your family will want to discuss a few things regarding this party to make the most of the time you have.

  • Which characters do you want to see?
  • Do you want to walk the whole trick-or-treat trail or do the rides with low wait times instead?
  • Which special party snacks are a must-try?
  • Which Boo to You Parade do you want to see? The early one or the late one?
  • Are you staying for the Fireworks?
  • Do you want to see the Hocus Pocus Villains Spectacular?

All of the information you will need ahead of time to plan for your Disney Halloween party will be online ahead of the party and on this blog. But be sure to grab a map when you enter the parks on your party day. The map will have locations of characters, the trick-or-treat trail, the treats offered, and times for the shows. Check out the TOP 8 Things to do at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party so you can be sure not to miss the important things! 

Halloween at Walt Disney World

What is the best Month to Attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party?

September is typically the best month to attend this Disney Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom. While the weather is still hot, it won’t be as hot as August, or as busy. And as soon as October arrives, there are often higher crowds. 

What is the best day to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party?

When planning for a special event at Magic Kingdom Park we always recommend weekday evenings as your best bet. While locals and vacationers typically attend on weekends, the weekday crowds tend to be less. And since this party has a very high crowd threshold, you will see way more people than your typical Disney After Hours event. Plan a weekday night if possible. We like Tuesday evenings best.

Entering Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom

If planning to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party we recommend skipping the Magic Kingdom Park Ticket that day. For one thing, it saves you money since you don’t need the Magic Kingdom Ticket. For another, it gives you a chance to ease into your day, so that you can make the most of your night. There are, however, two approaches, to getting into Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party. 

  • Arrive at 4:00 pm at Magic Kingdom Park
    • The earliest you can arrive at Magic Kingdom is 4:00 pm, and we highly recommend taking advantage of the fact that you can maximize your MNSSHP ticket by getting a full 8 hours from 4:00 pm- 12:00 am in the park. Once arrives, simply scan in and head to the cast member handing out wristbands. They will double-check your ticket and issue your wristband. 
  • If You’re Already at Magic Kingdom
    • If you are already at Magic Kingdom Park on your MNSSHP day, then you have a few options to get your party wristband. You can simply ask a cast member, or walk to the front of the park. OR you can additionally find party wristband stations in Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, and Adventureland. Just be sure to have them scan your Magicband or Ticket and they will issue your wristband.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Characters

Speaking of special Character meet lines, these are some of the best(and longest!) Disney Character Meet and Greets you will see all year. This is where you can meet Jack Skellington and Sally, the Seven Dwarves, and Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore in their Halloween Costumes (at the regular Pooh meeting place at 7 p.m.).While these are the most popular characters to meet during the party, you can also meet others like Abu, Jack Sparrow, Rock and Roll Stitch, the Queen of Hearts, Tweedle Dee, and Tweedle Dum.

The Seven Dwarves Return *NEW*

Back and better than ever you can catch the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White, at the party. Sure to be a HUGE draw for many, if you’re hoping for a pic with these guys we recommend heading to the line as soon as you arrive, or waiting until the party is close to over to make your move. 

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Characters

Disney Halloween Character Meet and Greet Strategy

The best way to tackle the meet and greets is to come up with a game plan beforehand. You can spend a lot of time in these lines. The characters take a lot of breaks(or sometimes fewer but longer breaks). And since these are rare experiences, some of the guests spend a LOT of time interacting with the characters. Note that inclement weather can delay the start of the meet and greet. 

A 2-3 hour wait to meet Jack and Sally, is average. With Pooh and Friends, the average wait time is closer to an hour. As a strategy, you can easily meet Pooh, the Seven Dwarves, and the Queen of Hearts all in one night due to their proximity to each other. And there are lots of other meets and greets available throughout the party, just be sure to look for them! Just decide before you go how you’re going to spend your night and if that affects your party activities throughout the night.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Entertainment

Okay, so onto the entertainment! While there is trick or treating here, we don’t recommend wasting much (if any) time doing this. We always stop at a station or two just so we can get in our “trick or treating on Main Street” experience. Aside from that, the lines are just too long, and simply put, it’s candy and you can get that anywhere.  The treat stations are pretty well-lit and are also marked on the map so they’re pretty easy to locate. Be sure to maximize your time if you do plan to trick or treat and plan your route to avoid wasting foot traffic.

Disney Junior Experiences at the Halloween Party

If you have little ones, Storybook Circus will also be hosting a Disney Junior Jam, a dance party featuring some of the most beloved Disney Junior Characters! This is a great way to help little ones shake their sillies out in the Dumbo area of the park. 

Pirates at the Magic Kingdom Halloween

Trick or Treat at Magic Kingdom 

Trick or Treating at Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party happens all over the park! With trick-or-treat stations in each land, there is plenty of ground to cover. You will be given a trick-or-treat bag and starting goodies at the party entrance when you arrive. BUT, we recommend that if trick-or-treating is your goal, then be sure to bring your own trick-or-treat bag. As the one you get at the party is small. 

But, remember, you’re not just there to Trick or Treat! While you can grab candy anyplace back home, the events, characters, rides, and exclusive snacks are only available during the party. Make the most of it! 

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Cadaver Dans

Cadaver Dans in Frontierland

The Dapper Dans get all dressed up for Halloween and serve up music and “deadpan” humor for Halloween fun during the party. Complete with deadpan humor this quartet sings familiar songs of the season. They typically appear on the balconies above the Frontierland buildings and sing throughout the evening. Be sure to catch a song or two as you make your way around the park. 

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Boo to You Parade

Boo to You Halloween Parade at Walt Disney World | 8:30 p.m. & 11:15 p.m.

There are two Boo To You Parade times, one at 8:30 p.m. and one at 11:15 p.m. This starts off in Frontierland. But regardless of where you view it, you will want to make sure you find a spot about 30 minutes beforehand. We love seeing this from Main Street, which is also the most crowded area. Find the parade route on the map to see which location works best for you.

Highlights include:

  • A flurry of favorite Disney friends, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, donning Halloween costumes as they prepare to go trick-or-treat down Main Street, U.S.A.
  • Hitchhiking Ghosts and the spectral Bride, who glides among the waltzing spirits—representing the Haunted Mansion from Liberty Square
  • A wicked assortment of Disney Villains reign over a Fantastyland-inspired grand finale.

The first parade is always more crowded, but we love it so much that we usually try to watch both. As this is a super popular parade, be sure to get a spot and stay there, potentially 1 hour, to 1/2 hour ahead of parade time. While the crowds for the parades are not as horrible as they are for the fireworks, there are always people who try to get in front of you last minute. Check out our Boo to You Parade Photo Tour for glimpses of the best views of the floats. 

Boo to You Parade Disney Halloween Parade *NEW* Characters

Get ready for the  Boo To You Parade by memorizing the Disney Halloween Parade Lyrics ahead of time! Featuring NEW for 2024, the Sanderson Sister Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, and Clarabell join the team. Also featuring the The Spectral Bride, of Haunted Mansion fame, gliding her way among the spirits, Ursula, Cruella de Vil, and the Queen of Hearts. A change to the lineup is in the Hoedown section of the parade, now featuring dancing scarecrows, instead of cowgirls and cowboys. 

Where’s the Best Place to Sit for the Boo to You Parade?

The parade is best seen from the grassy knoll at the front of Main Street USA with the castle in the background. However, this space is sometimes reserved for concierge guests, VIP tours, and specialty dining guests. That said, any place on the edge of the Main Street Sidewalk is good, and even near the firehouse. Just pick a spot and just stay there.

We DO NOT  recommend the Frontierland area. While you may get a first look at the parade from this area, the lighting in this part of the park is terrible, and your photo backdrop is just bad. Be sure to check out our Boo To You Parade Tips. This parade lasts 20 minutes.

Not So Spooky Spectacular Halloween Fireworks at Magic Kingdom | 10:15 p.m.

These Halloween Fireworks at Walt Disney World feature Mickey and Friends checking out a Haunted House! So seeing the digital projections is an important part of the story. The fireworks are typically shown at 10:15 p.m. This can get crazily crowded. But if you move a little further down Main Street and not so close to the castle, you can actually get much better views. 

Trying to be directly in front of Cinderella Castle will require you to find a seat an hour early. Which we think is just a waste of precious party time. But for some families, this might be a great time to relax and recharge for the rest of the night. The Halloween fireworks show is one of the best fireworks shows you will ever see. It is a 360-degree fireworks show, so there will be fireworks all around you. So beautiful! For the best photos of these, you will definitely want to grab a spot early and use a tripod! This show lasts 12 minutes.

Disney Not So Spooky Spectacular Fireworks Show Dessert Party

Sure you’ve already paid for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party ticket, but if you want a front-row seat at the Not So Spooky Spectacular Fireworks Show, you can pay extra to attend the dessert party. Ghoulish goodies, sparkling cider, fruits, cheeses, and treats await. While we wouldn’t recommend using precious Halloween Party time for a dessert party, you can check out our dessert party experience here to see if it may work for you. And stay tuned for dessert party dates.

Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular | 8:00 p.m., 9:15 p.m. & 10:40 p.m.

The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, on the Cinderella Castle stage, can be viewed at 8:00 PM, 9:15 PM, 10:40 PM, and midnight.  If you camp out for the fireworks show, you will catch a showing of this while you wait. The Sanderson sisters are joined by other Disney villains including Oogie Boogie, Maleficent, and others.

Look for appearances from Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie and Maleficent. Combine them and other great Disney villains with amazing dancers, wild visual projections and otherworldly special effects to make Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular a not-to-be-missed Halloween treat!

We ALWAYS recommend the latest showtime for the fewest crowds. As this is a very popular event it’s best to head to the castle courtyard at least 30 minutes ahead of showtime to get a spot.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Costumes

Can you dress up? YES! you can. But be sure to review the Official Costume Guidelines for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party so you can go in the know. Keep in mind that it’s still Florida, so it’s still HOT, and grown-ups craft some of the best Disneybound outfits for this event. 

 “Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.” 

Also note that per the costume guidelines, masks are not allowed for guests ages 14 and over, and realistic-looking weapons are strictly prohibited. For any costumes with capes, keep them above the waist—capes below the waist are considered safety hazards and not acceptable.

Want to make the most of your Party experience? Check out all our Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Tips. 

Dress Up! 

While not everyone dresses up for the party, it’s a fun way to celebrate the party. We’d say about 75% of people typically dress up. Make sure to follow Disney’s costume guidelines for dressing up. This is the one occasion where adults can dress up at Walt Disney World, so have fun with it!

Have a plan

The party can seem pretty hectic once you start to map out the night. The 8 hours from 4-midnight go by very quickly! Having a plan beforehand will help you maximize your time. Prioritize the things you want to do, and leave everything else as a bonus. If you’re really invested in meeting certain characters, be sure to know when the best time to meet them is. Some start meeting before the party even starts, but all of them will have low wait times at some time during the night, whether during the fireworks or the Boo To You parade. Sometimes if you ask a Cast Member very nicely, they will give you hints on the best times to visit. If you plan to trick or treat, leave that for later in the night, as lines are generally quite long at the beginning and can take quite a bit of time out of your night. 

If you’re traveling with smaller Mouseketeers, as always, be sure to leave some flexibility in your plans. 

Have Dinner Before the Party Starts

We usually like to eat dinner BEFORE we get into the party. Mainly so we don’t spend party time in the restaurant and can enjoy the entertainment and treats available. If you are hoping to break for dinner at Magic Kingdom, however, there are quite a few restaurants open, and we’d recommend aiming for dinner before 7 pm. Note that some restaurants still require a reservation. Here is the list. 

  • Main Street Bakery
  • Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
  • Casey’s Corner
  • Aloha Isle
  • Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
  • Westward Ho
  • Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
  • Cool Ship
  • The Lunching Pad
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Columbia Harbour House
  • Liberty Square Market
  • Pinocchio Village Haus
  • The Friar’s Nook
  • Storybook Treats
  • Gaston’s Tavern
  • Cinderella’s Royal Table
  • Be Our Guest Restaurant

Go on the Least Busiest Day

Tuesday is the least busy day for the party and the earlier in September, the lower the crowds. If you can swing it, this is definitely the time to go!

Stay Late

Stay late! If you can manage, the party only gets better the later you stay. The crowds die down and you won’t be dealing with the crowds heading to the parking lots. And you’ll have a better view of the last bits of entertainment of the night.

Ride the Haunted Mansion

If there is one ride that you ride during the party, make sure it is The Haunted Mansion. Not only are the cast members dressed a little extra spooky but Lady Carlotta appears outside the castle. She is hilarious.

Disney Halloween at Magic Kingdom

Is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party worth it?

Okay, so we’ll just get this question off the table first. We believe, Yes, this party is worth it. While this $109 – $199 dollar per person ticket feels like a lot, it’s not as expensive as Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Cost aside, this party includes specialty snacks and merchandise, the Disney Villains Spelltacular show, Mickey’s Not So Scary Fireworks, and the Boo to You Parade. And frankly, there isn’t any other party or event throughout the year, that gives you this much for this cost. So, yes, we think it’s worth it. 

This is one of our favorite events and highly recommend it for every Disney Family at least once. We hope this Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Guided has been helpful!
