Today was a busy day for Walt Disney World Resorts! After announcing a new Late Summer Offer, they went on to open the sale of tickets for BOTH Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! Whew! That Mouse loves himself a party! I can hardly plan one at a time, much less two at once!
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, or MNSSHP as Disney fans refer to it, is exactly as the name implies! A Halloween party, hosted by Mickey Mouse that is not so scary.
It’s held on selected nights starting in October each year. It is offered from 7:00 pm to midnight, after the regular closing of the Magic Kingdom, and requires a separate admission. (However, you don’t have to have paid admission on the same day to the Magic Kingdom in order to attend the special after-hours event.) Guests with Not So Scary Halloween Party Tickets are admitted to the park as early as 4:00 pm. You will need to get a wristband that allows you to stay in the park after the party begins.
Admission to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party includes trick-or-treating for adults and kids, costume parades for little ones, character meet-and-greets, fortune tellers, a Halloween riverboat ride, two performances of a unique holiday parade, and a special fireworks display. Attendees can wear costumes (subject to a few rules based on safety and appropriateness). As a bonus, most of the attractions are open!
It’s fun to have dinner at Tony’s Town Square or Liberty Tree Tavern just before the party. That way you’ll be in the park right when the festivities begin. Both restaurants book up quickly, so make your reservations as early as possible.
