Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party sets an early start for 2017

What do I love about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party? Let me count the ways. Whether trick-or-treating throughout the park, watching the bewitching fireworks, seeing the great Boo to You Parade, watching the fun Villain Spelltacular stage show, or visiting all the great photo meet and greet opportunities, there’s a so much to enjoy, we recommend getting to the Magic Kingdom as early as you can.

But wait, there’s more…. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is so spooktacular it will run for a record 32 select nights, Aug. 25 – Nov. 1. Yes, you read that right, Halloween starts on August 25th this year. What ever happened to Labor Day?

If you’ve never been to the after-hours hard ticket event, you don’t know what boo-tiful memory making opportunities your missing. Not to mention the cavities from the sugary treats. And since it’s Disney, you know it’s family-friendly and appropriate for children of all ages.

Neighborhood trick-or-treating was never like this! Halloween handouts of sweets, treats, snacks and more happen throughout the park. Meantime, most of Magic Kingdom’s iconic attractions are available for all to enjoy.

Among the eerily entertaining events:

  • Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular. Chills, thrills and villains join in a wickedly fun celebration hosted by the Sanderson Sisters, a trio of witch sisters from Disney’s live action film Hocus Pocus. The mischievous sisters are joined by dancers, more Disney Villains and other-worldly visual effects. It’s a Halloween party not to be missed, and it takes place at Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage.
  • Happy HalloWishes. This fireworks spectacle high above the Cinderella Castle lights the night. Guests are encouraged to sing along with some of the most infamous Disney Villains, including Cruella de Vil, Jafar and Oogie Boogie. Creepy colors crawl over the castle, a spell is cast and it’s every guest for themselves.
  • Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade. Led by the Headless Horseman, it’s masquerade mania as favorite Disney characters dress up for the occasion and ghostly floats bring the frights and sounds of the season to Main Street, U.S.A. and other Magic Kingdom viewing locations.
  • Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet. Deadpan humor and other antics from this Dapper Dans-style “band” scare up the fun in Frontierland.

Admission for select nights to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party starts at $74 per person ages 10+, $69 ages 3-9. Hours 7 pm-midnight.

Guests bobbing for even more Halloween fun can sign up for the special-ticketed Happy HalloWishes Dessert Party. Ticketed Not-So-Scary guests can also pair the event with a table-service dining experience. Even Disney PhotoPass Service gets in the spirit. Who knows what surprise guest will magically materialize in your photos?

  1. Disney continues to stretch the party dates to drive revenue with the extra ticket. More than two full months for Halloween is ridiculous. The inflation of event tickets during the past ten years has gotten out of control….sadly we all keep buying them.
