More Disney Villains and Other Enhancements Coming to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park

Fall is one of my favorite times of year at Walt Disney World Resort. The weather starts to change (at least a little bit), autumn décor makes Main Street, U.S.A. even more inviting, and it’s time once again to get dressed up for trick-or-treating during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park.

Playing a Halloween Tune

This year, the Disney villains are stepping out like never before during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, featuring new and enhanced experiences.

The popular “Villains Mix & Mingle – Live on Stage” returns to the Castle Forecourt Stage several times each night, with an unforgettable performance by beloved baddies from Disney films. Throughout the evening, guests interested in meeting their favorite Disney villains will now encounter them at locations around the park. Look for Jafar in Adventureland and the Queen of Hearts near Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland, while Lotso lurks near Buzz Lightyear in Tomorrowland.

Another all-new feature of this year’s event, Club Villain, takes over The Diamond Horseshoe in Liberty Square with a wicked atmosphere, lively music, glowing décor, and appearances by Cruella De Vil, Dr. Facilier, Anastasia, Drizella, Lady Tremaine, and more!

We’re also introducing enhancements to Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade, including the expansion of the Phineas and Ferb Creepa Crew pre-parade interactive experience to more of the parade route and the first-ever appearance of Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope in the parade.

Of course, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party also features treat trails with candy galore, the Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball in Tomorrowland, appearances by Jack and Sally from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” the ride of the Headless Horseman, and “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks.

My family looks forward to dressing up and attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party every year. For 2014, this separately ticketed event has expanded to 26 nights, from opening day September 1 through Halloween night, October 31. When will you be going?


  • Are the Princes going to be there this year, like Flynn Rider?

  • I really do hope the villains don’t take over the whole party..I love going to the Halloween party to see characters and experiences that I cant on a normal day and villains aren’t my favorite..I love a few but not i’m a little sad to see the dance party changing..but hoping that it will be a neat new atmosphere..but we look forward to meeting bullseye each year..since he is not a character you see any other please tell me he’ll be meeting somewhere in the park that night?

    Also since villains will now be meeting in coordinating spots..and the actual characters still will be meeting (EX: Aladdin&Jafar) does that mean they are meeting together..or the villain is out for awhile and then the other character is out for awhile?
    We were hoping to meet the Aladdin gang this year and now were wondering how that will work.


  • If Maleficent and Evil Queen won’t be meeting with Aurora and Snow White inside Princess Fairytale Hall, will they be meeting together in another location? Or will we at least have an opportunity to meet Maleficent and the Queen solo somewhere else at the party?

  • Where will be able to meet with Maleficent and the evil queen during the party? Where is there meet and greet located?

  • Is the only way to meet Maleficent and the Evil Queen during the Party through the Sinister Soiree?

  • Shawn, please re-assure us all that the Evil Queen and Maleficent will still be made available for regular meet-and-greets at the Parties and not just at the Sinister Soiree!

    And while at it, please make all of the villains from Villains Unleashed available to greet guests at the Parties as well (ie: Big Bad Wolf, Foulfellow, Gideon, Stromboli, Brer Fox, Brer Bear, Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, Prince John, Sheriff of Nottingham, Shenzi, Banzai, Ed, Ratcliffe, Hades, Pain & Panic, Shan-Yu, Gantu, Dr. Hamsterviel, Bowler Hat Guy, Oogie Boogie, etc.)

  • This blog no longer makes any mention of Maleficent or the Evil Queen. Will they be available for a meet-and-greet anywhere during the Halloween party? Any word on this would be greatly appreciated.

  • well i was buying tickets till the above posters said no evil queen or malificent. guess ill wait to see now

  • My family and I are attending the Sept 9th party. I’ve noticed that the original blog post has been edited to longer mention Snow White/Evil Queen and Aurora/Maleficent meeting guests in Princess Fairytale Hall. Is this no longer happening? If so, does that mean that Cinderella and Rapunzel will be back in the PFH with their princes?

  • Why has the portion of this blog about Maleficent meeting with Sleeping Beauty and the Evil Queen meeting with Snow White in Fairytale Hall been removed today? Has this now been changed? If so, is Maleficent still having a meet and greet and where? And is anyone still meeting with the Princesses in Fairytale Hall?

  • Thank you so much for the reply, Shawn, and for the birthday wishes! I’m happy to hear Judge Frollo will be there and am looking forward to dancing with him! Thanks for the confirmations. 🙂

  • Toy Story character seekers…I have helpful information for you. While Woody and Jessie are not available during the party for meet and greets, there is still a way for you to get a photo with them in your costumes, which is how my mom and I did it last year when we dressed up as Woody and Buzz. Just try to get to Magic Kingdom as close to the 4pm entrance time as you can and head straight to Frontierland. Woody and Jessie are out for meet and greets everyday until 5pm or 5:30pm and you can get your photos with them before the party even starts. I hope this helps some of you!

  • I’m with Amie on this one – NEED my Chip and Dale during MNSSHP. Will they be somewhere at the party – I think they are not scheduled to be in Frontierland after the end of August, so will they even be around pre-party hours at MK? They are my 2 favorite furry friends!
