Summer break hasn’t even started yet but news of Walt Disney World’s popular Halloween party have been circulating the Internet for days now. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special ticketed event that allows guests to roam the park in their favorite Halloween costume while collecting candies and catching up with some rare characters. While prices for 2017 have not been released yet, tickets for the 2016 party ranged from $72-$105 for adults and $67-$100 for children (ages 3-9) without tax. With those prices you might ask yourself if a trip to the “House of Mouse” is worth it just for an evening party and our answer is…YES and here is why.
For families who love Halloween, there is no better place to celebrate the macabre holiday than Disney. As the park starts to transform from cheerful magic to a more spooky feel (which is 100% kid friendly), guests will be treated to many rare character appearances such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Queen of Hearts, Jafar, Jack Skellington and Sally, and many more.
Trick or treating will never be the same after collecting some sweet treats at this party! Children and adults can come dressed as their favorite characters (costume guidelines can be found here) and bring home bag loads of delicious treats. Be sure to take a break and enjoy some classic attractions that’ll be open throughout the night as well.
Guests will be treated to the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular stage show featuring some of everyone’s favorite villains and the famous Sanderson sisters from the classic Disney film Hocus Pocus (a treat for many parents).
And be sure to grab a spot on Main Street U.S.A. for Mickey’s Boo-to-You parade featuring some familiar characters from The Haunted Mansion. But no need to fear, Mickey and his pals make many appearances during the parade complete with giant candy floats that fill the air with sweet smells.
Finally, end your night with a magnificent display of “Happy HalloWishes” in front of Cinderella’s castle. Set to the tune of famous villain theme songs, this unique firework display will wow your family like only Disney World can.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take place August 25 – November 1, 2017 on select nights at the Magic Kingdom. For complete details on prices, costume guidelines, and other details visit the Walt Disney World website.
