Part of the fun to be had at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) is meeting Creative Characters, Fun Friends, Happy Haunts, and Ghoulish Ghosts.  Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place at the Magic Kingdom Park, select nights in September and October, at the Walt Disney World Resort.  Appropriate costumes are allowed for both children and adults during this special-ticket-event.

See the Costume Guidelines here.


When you meet some Creative Characters, you will really begin to notice the festive aura of the evening ahead.  People are more than willing to show off their creativity.  Ask questions about how they prepared their costumes.  You will be amazed at how some folks come up with ideas for building their own costumes.  We all have some level of creativity and it is really interesting to meet new people and share in a bit of creative conversation.


Some of us are not quite as creative as others.  With that being said, when you make eye contact with one, two, and then three gentlemen wearing exactly the same friendship shirt that you are, you just have to stop and say”Hello New Fun Friends!”  Of course what would New Fun Friends be like without a picture to remember that moment by?  We had a good laugh and introduced ourselves. These three gentlemen were in the same boat as I was having similar time constraints with regards to costume creativity.


Seeing Happy Haunts, and Not-So-Happy Haunts, is part of your experience during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.  As you enter, and exit the Magic Kingdom, be sure to notice the Happy Mickey Ghost, as well as some other interesting displays.  (Don’t want to ruin the fun with too many spoilers after all.)  The evening is about fun and spooks.  I challenge  you to stop by the Haunted Mansion to meet some of the Not-So-Happy Haunts.  Good luck attempting to get a smile out of these hauntingly interesting characters.

Beware of Ghoulish Hitchhiking Ghosts!  You may not see these guys right away, but I can assure you they are there.  Disney PhotoPass Ghoulish Ghosts Magic Shots are available at a variety of locations around the park.  Be sure to check them out for some spooky fun Ghoulish Ghosts meet-ups.  Download the My Disney Experience App prior to the event so you can check your Magic Shots to be sure they uploaded.  Some of mine did not upload and I did not realize, until I got home, that they were not there.  Happy Hauntings!
