5 Things To Do At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Halloween comes alive each September and October at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom theme park for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. You must have a separate ticket for this event and although the Halloween Party starts at 7 PM, you can enter Magic Kingdom starting at 4 PM.
I joined my friend, Hope, and her family for the opening opening night of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. It was my first time at the Halloween Party and after spending $63 on a ticket (when I am already a Passholder) I expected big things.
There is a lot to see and do during the Party, from 7 PM to 12 AM. Here are the 5 things that I suggest you do at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
1. Trick Or Treat
Who says adults can’t trick or treat? Certainly not Disney! Guests are given a treat bag for collecting candy at the Halloween Party. A special map with candy stations is available at the front of the park. Halloween-clad cast members fill your bag with bite-sized candy bars. Costumes are not required for this event, but about half of the park was dressed up. This is the only time that adults can dress up at Disney.
2. Visit The Attractions That Are Always Packed
Characters come out for meet and greets at 7 PM. Most of the park runs to these lines, so use this time to visit any attractions that you have been wanting to ride. We walked right up to Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and It’s A Small World with less than a five minute wait time.
3. Character Meet & Greets
I did not think that there was anything that I enjoyed more than getting my photo with Disney characters, but pictures with Disney characters in Halloween costumes was a game changer. Special characters are added for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party including Jafar, Cruella DeVille, plus Jack Skellington and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack and Sally were the most popular attraction by far!
4. Watch The Boo To You Halloween Parade
Grab a seat ahead of time to ensure great photos for Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade. The parade runs at 8:35 and 11:15 PM, with the latter parade having a much smaller crowd. The parade starts in Frontierland; I recommend watching from here. Beware of the bright streetlights which may spoil your photographs (spoken from my own mistake). The catchy song that plays throughout the parade will be stuck in your head for days!
5. See The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular With The Sanderson Sisters
There are four different times to see this Halloween inspired show, 8:00 PM, 9:20 PM, 10:40 PM, and midnight. We opted for the midnight showing and secured a close spot near the front of the stage. Come see the Sanderson Sisters from the movie Hocus Pocus as they use their magic to take on some of Disney’s most evil villains. The look-alikes for Winifred, Mary, and Sarah were great! The singing and dancing was entertaining but the light show and fireworks were even better. Spoiler Alert: You will get to hear “I Put A Spell On You”.
