Ride Closures Hallloween Party

Amended: After we went to print with the article below, Disney announced that they made amendments to their attraction list for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and that Seven Dwarfs Mine Train would be open as well as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. We hope you are as excited as we are about giving all of these spectacular attractions a ride during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. 

Details are starting to surface this week regarding attractions and events that will be available as part of this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  However in a move that is sure to be controversial with party-goers it would appear that a few of Magic Kingdom’s headlining attractions are notably missing from the list of rides due to remain open. This includes the hugely popular – Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

In a post appearing on the Disney Parks Moms Panel, a guest asks whether the Mine Train will be running during the Halloween Party and the answer given is “no.”*  The list of rides to stay open are as follows:

  • The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Swiss Family Treehouse
  • A Pirate’s Adventure- Treasures of the Seven Seas
  • Country Bear Jamboree
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
  • “It’s a small world”
  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Mad Tea Party
  • Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid
  • Dumbo the Flying Elephant
  • The Barnstormer
  • Astro Orbiter
  • Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
  • Space Mountain
  • Tomorrowland Speedway
  • Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
  • Monters, Inc. Laugh Floor.

With the exception of Space Mountain and The Barnstormer, Disney’s other three coasters will not be open for the party. The list does not include Splash Mountain (which is expected to be under refurbishment at this time) and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, in a move that may leave many thrill-seekers sadly disappointed.

We here at Chip and Co expect more details to be released this week regarding the line-up for this year’s Halloween parties.  Readers are encouraged to watch this space for further details.

  1. Just called and asked about the rides and the only one she knew (this was from an email they received to tell guests) the only ride they know will be closed is splash mountain. They couldn’t guarantee if a ride could be shut down, but seven dwarves and thunder mountain will be available.

  2. You all do realize you don’t need a park ticket for the parties, right? As long as you don’t enter the park before 4 you don’t need to use any park tickets. Use that day to stay at the hotel and swim, play putt-putt, go to Disney Springs and save your ticket.

  3. FYI, reports say that this is a website error and that both 7DMT and BTMRR will be operating during MNSSHP

  4. This is disappointing. The big rides with limited attendance is a major appeal to this party. This is very sad to me.

  5. Ahhhh. Seems like a shady deal.

    Did they mention anything about this when guests shell out extra $$ on top of the enterance fee for the party?

    One would assume rides that were available in the past should remain available- unless being refurbed or temp closed for glitches…

    False advertising?

    I’m also (naively) hoping that adding more party nights means Disney will the lower guest population – and thus shorter lines for events & food. LOWER GUEST POPULATION PER NIGHT also meaning shorter lines for the POPULAR rides, not just the ‘let’s do this as long as we’re here, waiting to go do that’ rides.

  6. I don’t understand why they close any of the rides during this time… I mean you pay for your park ticket and an extra $90 for the parties,, they should have every ride open but especially the coasters!!! That’s part of the fun during the parties,, not as many people and you can ride the rides multiple times with hardly any line..

  7. I think this diminishes the value of the party — at least for me. I won’t be buying a ticket this year.

  8. This is a disappointment. You pay so much for these parties and by giving people a lot of options in the park to do, it helps keep the crowds at bay vs gathering them all up in certain places. Some people may not go to MK another time during their trip and it seems very sad to me to lose some of the best of MK. Now everyone will be trying to pile in before the officially start of the party.
