I have a question. Will Fantasmic still be open during Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland California?

Sorry…no, Fantasmic will not be offered.

This will be our 9th year attending the Mickey’s Not-So-Scarey Halloween Party.We absolutely LOVE it! The park isn’t as crowded.The dance parties are so much fun.The rides are open.The kids can trick-ot-treat in a safe environment. When you add Disney Magic what more could you ask for?!?!

Does anyone know what rides are open during the Halloween party nights? I can’t find any information about any rides being open.

I am going there this year, and I’m deciding on a quick costume to wear! I think I’ll be either a zombie chef or a zombie alumnus of my old high school!

Love the MNSSHP in WDW, have done it the last two years. Most rides in park are open and the Haunted Mansion is especially “haunting” for the celebration. Villains are awesome and the fireworks are some of the best I’ve seen. Parade is amazing too, headless horseman and all. Totally worth the ticket price.

I was thinking, Tom (as a 23-year-old college girl with a love for more Disney fun) about the predicament with what could “replace” the Halloween Screams fireworks show. For those who don’t attend the Mickey’s Party, that is. I feel that it is finally time to take a lesson from Hong Kong Disneyland Imagineers and bring in the BEST Halloween parade anyone here, has EVER seen.

I’m talking about the Haunted Halloween Parade at HK Disneyland. I don’t even like parades and I would wait through any kind of croud to see this! Thoughts?
