Last year, the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party of the season began in August which was a first ever. This year, it looks like the first party might even be earlier than last year by about a week!
The first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party last year was on August 25. By the looks of Walt Disney World Park hours that have been published for August, the first party of 2018 will be on Friday, August 17!
If you notice, the Magic Kindom is scheduled to close at 6 pm on August 17. Typically, when we see parks closing at either 6 or 7 pm in previous years, it meant a Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party was being held that evening. With the Magic Kingdom closing on August 17, we can make an educated guess that the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party would be held that night. Also, the first party is mostly on a Friday.
In addition, the 6 pm close time of the Magic Kingdom also indicates that the Park will be closing an hour earlier for those Guests who do not have a ticket to the party. This change was implemented last year for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. This will be the first year it will also be applied to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
With the popularity of the Halloween party, it makes sense they are expanding the dates even more. We will keep an eye on the park calendars and pass along the dates we believe the rest of the parties will be on. Right now, there are no published hours past August 17.
