Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

In one week, we will be in the most magical place in the world! We’re going to Walt Disney World!

We went to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas last year and had a wonderful time and I could wait to book our trip to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

When you visit during these fun events, the park closes to the general public and only those guests that purchase a separate party ticket are allowed to stay. This means shorter lines, less crowd and more fun!

I think we will make these events an annual tradition!

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to the Magic Kingdom for 23 select nights between Sept. 13 and Nov. 1, 2011.

The after-hours Magic Kingdom party will once again be immersed in the Halloween spirit, including two entertainment spectaculars created especially for the event:

  • Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade proceeds down Main Street, U.S.A., heralded by the Headless Horseman and his trusty steed, and trailed by a cavalcade of holiday-themed characters, from Mickey and the gang to Disney villains and the stars of the Haunted Mansion (but make sure to watch out for Hitchhiking Ghosts!).
  • The bewitching “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks spectacular illuminates the sky in bursts of orange and green fireworks, while Cinderella Castle is draped in eerie hues and ghostly apparitions flit along the park’s rooftops.

The party begins at 7 p.m. and runs until midnight. If you attend, you are encouraged to wear a costume and then you can go trick or treating around the park – how fun!

We are trying to figure out what to wear. We want to dress in a theme, but there are so many to choose from. I should have just made a decision and said that’s that, instead I’m trying to get all us us decide.

The Party dates in 2011 are: Sept. 13, 16, 20, 23, 27 and 30; Oct. 2, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 30 and 31; and Nov. 1.

To purchase advance tickets, guests can visit disneyworld.com/halloween or call 407/W-DISNEY. Advance purchase (prior to event day) savings of $6 per ticket are available for Sept. 13, 16, 20, 23, 27, and 30; Oct. 2, 6, 10, 11, 16, 18, 20, 23, 25 and 27; and Nov. 1.

We will receive complimentary passes to attend his event on order to facilitate this review. Opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
