Imagine the Magic Kingdom complete with Mickey Mouse pumpkin lights, candy, costumes, and lots of trick-or-treating! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a great weekend trip and an amazing way to make Halloween memories. Our daughter is still in elementary school, so we are always looking for activities to celebrate Halloween that doesn’t include giving her nightmares. I know you can relate!
This special ticket event is not only fun for the kids, but for the entire family. There are so many families who dress up and enjoy Halloween at Disney. I love to see how creative people are with their costumes. One of my favorite family costumes was Mary Poppins and the characters from the movie. (There is a dress code at the Magic Kingdom for this party. Be sure to check the dress code for costumes before making any purchases.)
The Halloween Party is on select nights at Magic Kingdom from August to November. Tickets range from $100 – $135 (at the time of this post) depending on the night of the week. You will be given a special wristband when you enter the park. The park closes at 7:00 p.m. for any guest who doesn’t have a ticket. Disney Tip: You can enter the gates at 4:00 p.m.
With limited guests at the park, you have a chance to ride your favorite rides and see your favorite characters with shorter wait times. (That has been our experience. I am sure there are nights when there are more guests as you get closer to Halloween night.)
MICKEY’S NOT-SO-SCARY HALLOWEEN PARTY INCLUDES:
- Free Trick-or-Treat bags – you can also buy novelty ones at the park (one year we bought a pumpkin-shaped Mickey Mouse that lit up)
- Trick-or-Treat stations throughout the park – there are dedicated locations on the map with signs to all of the stations and the lines move quickly
- A dance party with special guest characters – there was a villains dance party and a Monsters Inc. dance party the years we have attended the event
- Special (Halloween) fireworks show
- Boo-to-You Halloween Parade (Disney characters in costume dancing to Halloween themed music!)
- Special event t-shirts, Disney pins, and desserts – the event merchandise is only available for sale at the Magic Kingdom during the actual event (we bought limited edition pins, event t-shirts, balloons, and candy corn cotton candy)
This is a great weekend trip (if you can get to Orlando within a few hours). If you are already planning a trip to WDW, you can save a few dollars by not going to a park during the day (hanging out at your resort) and buying the event ticket (it is a little bit cheaper than your day ticket). However, you have to purchase the event ticket separate from your park passes. If you are staying for a number of days, you may not save much money by not buying an additional day ticket and adding Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
One thing is for sure . . . this is a Trick-or-Treat event to remember and a great family tradition. What a great memory you are creating for your family. Trick-or-treating at Disney? Really? Leave it to Disney to go above and beyond with this experience.
This makes me want to plan my trip today. What about you?
