Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Features More Candy Than Ever

posted on September 16th, 2014 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Let’s talk about one of my favorite parts of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party – the candy!

Trick Or Treat?

In case you’ve never attended one, the party is an after-hours Halloween celebration that features a lot of must-see Halloween-themed entertainment, such as the “Boo To You Parade,” “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks, Disney characters in costumes, and much more. The party also features trick-or-treating for kids of all ages – yes, this means that adults are welcome to participate!

This year, we’re happy to share that the parties feature more trick-or-treat locations than ever before, with a total of 13 treat stops that over the next few weeks will hand out a total of 261 tons of candy. Guests who exit the park after the 8:30 p.m. performance of the “Boo to You” parade are in for an additional treat – but we’ll leave it up to you to find out just what it is.
