One of my favorite events to attend at Walt Disney World is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. On select nights, during the months of September, October and November your family can enjoy some Halloween fun that’s appropriate for all ages. This is a separate ticketed event that’s held once a year at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World and also at Disneyland Paris. The party is not focused so much on the frightening aspect but is a more family friendly event. It is Disney, after all.

There are so many reasons to love this party! It’s a fantastic way to add some Fall fun to your vacation…



Why should the kids be the only ones to dress up like their favorite characters? This is an opportunity for everyone to get creative with costumes! Group costumes, couples, kids… everyone gets in on the action at this party! You can even have your costume shipped the resort ahead of your arrival if it won’t fit in your luggage!

Stages show and Meet and Greets

Be sure to check out the stage show and meet and greet with Disney Villains (The Disney Villains Mix and Mingle). The show takes place on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage. Stick around after the show to come face to face with your favorite Disney Villains such as Captain Hook, Queen of Hearts and Evil Queen, just to name a few. There are also some great opportunities to meet characters at dance parties such as “Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball” with Mike and Sully in Tomorrowland at the Rockettower Plaza stage. You can still see the characters at their regular locations but don’t miss these parties! Looking for some rare characters? How about a photo op with all of the Seven Dwarfs or Tarzan and Jane? Jack Skellington and Sally have also been added to the line up. These friends and more come out to party Halloween style!

Trick or Treating


Ok, is there anything better than being able to say that you went trick or treating at the Magic Kingdom? Bring your treat bag with you along a themed trail (more treat trails will be added for 2013) on the bridge between Storybook Circus and Tomorrowland (Alice and Mad Hatter’s Treat Party).. Candy, candy, candy! You can find some additional trick or treat spots throughout the park by looking for the lighted balloons.

Mickey’s Boo To You Halloween Parade

This is one of my favorite Disney parades. Phineas and Ferb, along with their team will warm up the crowd before the parade starts. Your favorite Disney characters are here sporting their Halloween attire- dancing and singing along the parade route. Also making appearances are the Disney Villains, the Haunted Mansion dancers and the Hitchhiking Ghosts!

Now, I won’t lie- the parade song WILL get stuck in your head. You have been warned… Be sure to get your spot early and make sure you catch the Headless Horseman from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in his ride signifying the beginning of the parade.

Happy HalloWishes: A Grim Grinning Ghosts’ Spooktacular in the Sky


On Party nights, the Wishes fireworks show is replaced by a more Halloween themed show – Happy Hallowishes. Based on the Haunted Mansion, the show features Disney music with a Halloween theme and an amazing display of multicolored fireworks.

Halloween Party tickets are available right now for the following dates:

September: 10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27 & 29, 2013

Event hours are from 7pm-midnight but a great tip to remember is that guests are allowed into the Magic Kingdom as early as 4pm with a Halloween Party ticket. At 7pm the cast members will begin to filter out those who do not have a wristband for the event.
