Mickeys not so scary halloween party scarecrow

Halloween’s happiest haunts will be back for 23 “spook-tacular” nights of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.

From Sept. 10 through Nov. 1, the after-hours special ticket event is full of Halloween spirit. The “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks show will light up the sky with Halloween inspired fireworks. In “Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade” the Headless Horseman rides again down Main Street U.S.A. for a happy haunted Halloween season.

The Headless Horseman is our favorite part of the parade. I recommend getting to the parade earlier than usual because he rides about 15 minutes or so before the parade starts. Be sure to listen for the announcement because he will be there and gone in a flash.

There are some new additions to look for this year including the debut of Jack Skellington and Sally (from“The Nightmare Before Christmas”), along with “Monsters, Inc.” scarers Mike and Sulley hosting their own Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball.

The fun begins at 7 p.m. and runs until midnight, with guests encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat around the Magic Kingdom.

Chips Tips 1: You can get into the park at 4pm with a party ticket but the festivities do not start until 7pm!

Chips Tips 2: Go to the second parade, it is less crowded. Since the event is far less crowded than a normal park day, you can pretty much walk on rides while the first parade is going on. 

I highly recommend this event. It is so much fun even if you do not have small children.

Party dates in 2013 are:

Sept. 10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27, and 29
Oct. 3, 4, 6, 10, 11, 14, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 27, 29, and 31
