What Does Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Include?
Getting a ticket to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party means you get access to Halloween fun at Magic Kingdom you can’t have outside party times. Here’s the lineup of everything to look forward to at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
Trick or Treat Candy Trail
The trick or treat trail weaves throughout the park getting you handfuls of candy everywhere you turn! And this year you can find an extra special show along the path! Check out the Treat Trail Encounter with Monsters Inc. characters at the Monster’s Inc. Laugh Floor in Tomorrowland. There’s no telling where these guys will pop up for a scare! Tip: Focus on everything the party has to offer, and not just trick or treating. While fun for a while you still have to take all the candy on rides and stash the extra in a suitcase for the travel home.
Halloween Ride Overlays
On Space Mountain, riders will be treated to a new Halloween soundtrack as they race through the cosmos. If you’d rather explore the islands head to Pirates of the Caribbean where a “posse” of live pirates, causing a raucous, will be part of the Pirates overlay for the Halloween Party. Haunted Mansion also gets dressed up for the party with Madame Carlotta and spookier, web-covered hosts. Tip: To make the most of your time and reach all the rides during the party, turn left at the castle and start in Adventureland. Most everyone else will turn right, leaving that side of the park a little emptier when the party starts.
Boo to You Parade New Float Additions
The Boo To You Parade is the highlight of the Halloween Party featuring the Grave Diggers of Haunted Mansion, Disney Villains, Peter Pan and more. And this year we’ll see a few new additions to the parade including The Spectral Bride, of Haunted Mansion fame, Buzz Lightyear, and the Incredibles. Tip: The best views really are on main street with the castle in the background, and the second parade is always less crowded.
Hocus Pocus Villains Spelltacular
Join the Sanderson sisters of Hocus Pocus as they attempt to pull together a party guest list and stir up some mischief with the Disney Villains at Cinderella’s Castle. Only seen during the party this fan favorite is shown a few times throughout the evening of the party. Tip: The latest Hocus Pocus Villains Spelltacular at midnight has the lowest crowds.
Exclusive Disney Character Meet and Greets
One of the best parts about attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is seeing our favorite Disney characters all dressed up! Winnie the Pooh and Friends always have the best costumes and certain characters, like Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas, can’t be seen anywhere else! Tip: Lines for characters during the party are long so it’s best to visit the most in-demand characters first. Guests can get in line as early as 4pm, but character lines do become lower during parade times and around 11 pm when the park starts to empty. Choose wisely and be sure to dress up and follow Disney’s costume guidelines.
Treats at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
Some treats are only available during the party, so grab them while you can. From spooky new ice cream cones to desserts dressed up like your favorite Disney villains there are both sweet and savory treat options to get you through the night. Tip: Take advantage of all the spooky food options during the party and don’t book a table service meal. Instead, grab dinner at a quick service counter so you don’t lose precious party time.
Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Fireworks Show
Replacing Hallowishes is Walt Disney World’s new Halloween fireworks show, Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular. Featuring Jack Skellington and the Disney Villains, we’ll follow Zero as leads the way with Mickey and friends’ trick or treating and stumbling upon a spooky haunted house! Special features include digital art projections, fireworks, a new soundtrack and more. Tip: This is a 360-degree fireworks show so they look great from anywhere in the park. Plan to grab your spot early if you want a spot in front of Cinderella’s Castle or book the Not So Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party, which not only gets you ghoulish goodies, but also prime viewing!
Cruella’s Halloween Hide A Way Dinner Package
If you’re looking for up close action at the Boo to You Parade book Cruella’s Halloween Hide A Way Dinner Package at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. New this year, you’ll get access to the terrace and the chance to meet Cruella de Ville herself. Tip: Book your dinner so that it ends right before the parade starts. This will help you get the prime viewing for the parade without losing party time!
