Fans of Disney’s unique brand of spooky fun that is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will be happy to know there are 29 nights to dressed up and go trick-or-treating in the Magic Kingdom. That’s right, despite early rumors, guests of all ages will be allowed to wear costumes at the event, there are just a few new restrictions that will help Disney keep everyone safe.
In addition to candy trails, guests of this after-hours hard ticket event will enjoy special entertainment that includes returning favorites: “Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade,” “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” and “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks.
Here is the full list of this year’s dates:
- September – 2, 8, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 23, 25, 29, 30
- October – 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 30, 31
It’s interesting to note that the last party is on the 31st with no bonus party on November 1st (a Tuesday) as Disney has done in the past. Also, no prices have been posted yet. There’s a bit of worry among the fan community that prices will rise drastically along with other park prices this year.
Here are the full costume guidelines from Disney’s event page:
- Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.
