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.
