Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, which is why I must attend the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

In case you’re attending your first party this year, here are some tips on how you can make the most of your evening.

The Party Requires a Separate Ticket

I see this question every year, and yes, entry to the party requires a separate Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket (even if you’re visiting the park earlier in the day, the party requires separate entry). Here’s a tip,  you may receive a discount on select event nights when you purchase tickets in advance. Some nights do sell out, so buying tickets ahead of time is suggested.


Wear Costumes

Kids (of all ages) are welcome to wear costumes to the party. It doesn’t matter whether your costume is elaborate or homemade, dressing up puts you in the Halloween spirit and sure makes for cute photos with Disney characters , who also wear their Halloween best!

Grab a Special Event Map

The best way to ensure you don’t miss a thing is by grabbing an event map on the way in. These special maps show the location of trick or treat stations and special character greetings and list the times for must-see Halloween entertainment. I highly recommend the stage show!


Try Trick-Or-Treat Stations

Guests of all ages are also welcome to trick-or-treat throughout the park at designated treat stations and special treat trails – pathways that offer multiple candy stops along the way. This year, more than 220 tons of candy are on order, so be sure to pick up a complimentary trick-or-treat bag on your way into the park. The first year I went I didn’t Trick or Treat because I felt I was too old. I was wrong because everyone was Trick or Treating. Everyone is a kid in Disney!!

Watch Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade

Any Disney parade is amazing, but if you’d like to see a procession of characters in Halloween costumes, marching Haunted Mansion butlers, dancing hitchhiking ghosts, Goofy’s giant candy machine and much more.  This parade is my favorite, it truly is a must see at least once in your life.


Don’t Miss “Happy HalloWishes” Fireworks

One of the highlights of the event is the special Halloween-themed fireworks show that takes place at 9:30 p.m. “Happy HalloWishes” is narrated by the Ghost Host from The Haunted Mansion and features sections inspired by Cruella de Vil, Jafar, Oogie Boogie and other Disney villains.

Here is great tip: You can get into the park at 4 pm with your MNSSHP ticket but the festivities don’t begin until 7 pm! 

Do you have any tips for MNSSHP?

  1. My kids watched the first parade this year, live on the web, so they could get a good idea of what to expect. They watched it again the next night. 🙂

  2. The Boo-to-You Halloween parade is by far the best parade at Disney World!! I’ve seen them all (including the Holiday Party one), and this one is just extraordinary!! Don’t miss it!!
